Part of the halloween costume I didn't really get to wear. Can you guess what its from/for?

I have 7 pics in my gallery


For my health, for my son, for my peace of mind.

I am overweight, constantly tired, and too stressed out. I need a change.

My Goals:
I'm hoping to be within a healthy weight range by early 2011. I'm not extremely strict with myself when it comes to goal time limits. As long as I am losing weight, I'm happy with my progress. Even if it takes me a little while. In 2003, I was 214lbs (or higher). Now I am 178lbs, having had my first child in between.

I want to live a long life, and see my children grow up and give me a bunch of grandchildren. That means getting myself into better shape than I am.

My Program:
Eating well and moving more. That's essentially my program.

Personal Information:
I am a mom and university student living in Newfoundland, Canada. I have a son under two-years-old, and I'm studying sociology/anthropology, with a minor in psychology.

Other Information:
I am a huge sci-fi/fantasy fan. I love Doctor Who, Star Trek, the Harry Potter series, the A Song of Ice and Fire series, the works of Neil Gaiman, and 90% of the works of Joss Whedon (Dollhouse = ugh). I am a complete geek, and comfortable saying so.

Wow...I know that to you N-land must feel so regular, but it's, like, the most fascinating place EVER to me! (I probably have a totally unrealistic, romanticized view of it, too -- there probably AREN'T craggy fishermen in wooly sweaters standing on a pier every 50 feet singing sea chanties, but still). I'm an actor/writer/storyteller, and there was just this big international storytelling conference in St. John's this past week -- like, it JUST ended, I think -- and a couple of my friends went, and I was so jealous. Couldn't BELIEVE that I had to pass up such a totally logical opportunity to see a place I've been dying to see.

Anyway, I was born in Boston, grew up in Milwaukee, WI (the setting for the sitcoms "Happy Days" and "Laverne & Shirley", if you need a reference!), and have lived in Minneapolis (where I am now), Seattle, and Columbus, OH. Minneapolis is a straight shot down into the US from Thunder Bay, ONT, if that helps at all, and it feels a TON like Winnipeg - the cities are really similar.

Yes, I am currently living in St. John's. :) I grew up in a town of about 5000 people, about three hours outside of St. John's. What about you? Where did you grow up?

Ah, I see! So hey, do you currently live in Newfoundland -- and if so, where? St. John's? Where did you grow up?
