Its important to stay serious now that I'm getting ready for the big day!
I've lost 30 pounds in the last 6 months, and nearly 50 since I started SparkPeople. Now with the prospect of transitioning to a vegetarian lifestyle, for my health and the health of the environment (I'm all for family farms, being from South Dakota, but Factory Farms are bad for the animals, bad for the environment, and if you look at records of recalls and what actually goes into "ground" meat, bad for us), I'm hoping to keep up the positive progress, as I prepare for getting married sometime in 2010.
My goal is to loose about 2 pounds a week, but anything is better than nothing.
My 10% First Step goal is 28 pounds- we'll see how long it takes!
My Diet Personality Type is Portion Distortioner, so my first steps are slowing down my eating, recognizing portion sizes, trying not to clean my plate, and not eating out as often (or getting kids meals if I do).
Hobbies: reading, writing, watching movies, sodoku, traveling, landscape photography, interior decorating (and watching HGTV)
I stress-eat, which is bad since I have a stressful job, but having my super-supportive boyfriend, who helps keep me in line with my goals but doesn't lecture me when I slip, really helps.

Thanks for the SparkGoodie!
I Like your idea of getting together a getting fit to survive team, though I just noticed it's an old post from a while ago :) I'm glad to be at the Survival team and will try to get more active there.
Thanks again for the goodie and I think you are doing really great with your progress! Keep up all the good work!
