I'm a stay at home mom of twins, and an aspiring graphic artist/photographer. I've been overweight since high school, but I've thought I was fat my whole life. I'm tired of feeling so tired all the time and I'm afraid if I stay on this path it will kill me before my time. I want my kids and husband to have a mom/wife they can rely on and have fun with for a long, long time.
My most important goal is to become healthier so I don't feel like every little twinge is a heart attack. My secondary goal is to lose weight so I can experience that freedom of movement that thin people seem to have. One day I would love to be able to just run and have it not hurt terribly. I would also love to be able to shop in a regular store and not have to worry if they carry plus sizes.

I do at least two 4.4 mile walks per week. I also try to incorporate 1-2 yoga/pilates videos. I try to walk 10-12 miles per week total, using step aerobics (on my living room stairs!) instead at times. I've also been known to substitute DVD's, Dancing , Zumba, Pilates, Yoga and swimming. I try to alternate activities frequently so I don't get bored. I have hand weights that I use sometimes, but most of my strength training is from the Yoga/pilates.

I am a huge fan of reading, music of a wide variety, and t.v. My favorite shows at the moment are, White Collar, Parks and Rec, Chuck, House, Breaking In, Castle, The Office, Modern Family, Dexter, Shameless. Off air shows that I will forever love are Buffy, Firefly, Heroes and Pushing Daisies. I am a pretty big fangirl and love loads of actors including Matt Bomer, Zachary Quinto, Zachary Levi, Chris Pine, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Milo Ventimiglia. I love music and am a die hard David Cook fan. Other favorite artists are Florence + the Machine, Mumford and Sons, Lady Gaga, Daughtry, Sublime, Regina Spektor, Adele, One Republic, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Green Day, Joshua Radin, and SO many more! I also love listening to folk music, celtic music, and instrumental guitar and piano.
