Going with an idealized me right now.

"The press paints the picture that I got this role and now I'm awesome, but the truth is that I've been awesome and then I got this role." - Gabby Sidibe

I've reinvented myself so many times - all part of the continuing evolution toward who I really am. As someone who has spent a lot of times trying to be all things to all people, that is more of a challenge than it may seem.

I've reinvented myself so many times - all part of the continuing evolution toward who I really am. As someone who has spent a lot of times trying to be all things to all people, that is more of a challenge than it may seem.

I get so caught up in others' problems, things happening around me, and the little things I'm doing that I lose track of "me" very quickly. By the time I'm through worrying about everyone else, I have nothing left for me. I don't want to do that any more.

I've stopped and started and faltered and rebooted so many times, I've lost count. The number one thing I want to give myself in the new year is to actually follow through on the promises I make myself.

That's the central theme of this entire journey for me. Besides just wanting to be healthy, feel good, and look good, I want to learn how to take care of me first. I have a long way to go.

My Goals:
I want to look good for the ones I love. I don't want to be embarrassed to be seen in photos with them. I don't want to feel embarrassed to go out. I want to enjoy wearing clothes again. I want to enjoy a balanced, healthy lifestyle. I want to enjoy being active. I want to dance. I want to figure skate again.

My Program:
I have no idea what I'm doing right now. I feel a huge resistance to any kind of program or restriction at this point (which is not very conducive to weight loss), so I'm back to trying to get past that. I did start Spark's 5K Your Way Walking Training Program and am trying to make myself at least track what I'm eating and get active.

Personal Information:
A northern girl living in the south. Loves the live music scene, the Web, dancing, science fiction, fantasy, travel, pop culture, beautiful people, fashion, and life.

I'm coming out of a very reclusive phase and I have a hard time sharing and being accountable. So I'm trying to work on that.

Other Information:
I am intensely spiritual, and I have a strong belief that everything in the universe is interconnected. I believe in the healing power of the arts. Live music is catharsis for me. I struggle with depression and anxiety, and live with a partner who is bipolar.
