Southern Surprise

I am originally from the great white north but moved to the south in 2005. Since that time I have fallen in love with all that the south can offer especially the food and my new found love of cooking and baking. All of this led to the biggest southern surprise of all...a gain of 50 lbs! I am working on getting these pounds off and since I have severe shiny object syndrome with dieting (always find something shinier and better to do than diet) it remains a challange.

Fitness Minutes: 4,941

My Goals:
My goal is to wear shorts again and to no longer be horrified by the thought of a bathing suit.

My Program:
Since I am out of control when it comes to yummy useless starches like fries, mashed potatoes, chips etc I am cutting them all out. I am also cutting out the sweets since I lack the ability to stop after starting. I am working on eating more protein and healthier fruits and veggies such as raspberries and lots and lots of spinach.

Personal Information:
Originally from the suburbs of Detroit and now in the suburbs of Charlotte NC. You couldnt force me to go back on my worst day. I love the south and am here to stay, I believe this makes me a damn yankee but that is fine with me!

Other Information:
I have three kids all in sports or activities of some sort. I love to read, cook and bake.

Joined Spark a while ago, just found the Charlotte team. I am in Indian trail, saw your post said you were in Matthews. Thought we could add as friends and help encourage each other. :)

Haha, sorry to disappoint with my less than stellar T Joe's review. It was pretty gross. But I HAVE had some great stuff from there! I had their couscous frozen meal today, which was good (technically more of a side, but whatev). And their chicken skewers were also pretty yummy. I'm totally blanking on others. Don't write TJoe's off! Just back away from the Filet of Sole!

Thank you so much for that comment - people tell me that often. Of course, that particular mirror is my favorite because somehow I always look great in it ;o) I am 5'9" so I do carry my weight well (mostly in my booty ... which I wouldn't trade for the WORLD!) LOL

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Hope the rest of your garden does well and that this ridiculous heat breaks tomorrow like they say. Best of luck from a fellow Yankee-turned-North-Carolinian.
