Some people have asked where I'm located, which is in the Lower Mainland of BC, Canada... land of endless rain and darkness.

Why am I here, I don't rightly know. Even for an internet addict, I still don't like tracking my whole life on a website. I'm quitting the nutrition tracker (the most tedious aspect) because I feel it's helped me just enough and without the exercise half I've been maintaining this weight for several years without going crazy and binging so I think I'm ok.

In fact I probably won't track anything and just go with my gut.

I don't even own a scale anyway.

Member Since: 7/9/2007

Fitness Minutes: 795

My Goals:
* to lose weight, obviously. I don't care how much.

* to have more activity in my life.

* to feel good about myself.

My Program:
* DDR when the lady downstairs has her music loud.

* Take the bike out every day or every other day when the weather permits.

* If I get a new job: take those spinning classes with Safron,
buy that zumba game for the wii
go swimming regularly

* weekend dance routines with Lindsay

* check for free videos online and do them during all that time I have at home alone

* do the cooking more often.

Personal Information:
I'm in my twenties, I have a stupid amount of hobbies and endless time to do them.

I finished a pastry arts program and I'm struggling to find a place in the field due to the fact that I have no driver's license. :(

In the meantime, I'm tired of seeing photos of myself looking so "swollen" and just basically not being who I feel I am inside.

Other Information:
I used to do a lot of strenuous native dance in high school but had to quit when I moved into an apartment and people complained about noise. I can no longer do more than one song without being winded. This is a huge regret of mine.

    Hello! I used to hate exercising too. Then I tried to do some weight training, which I really like a lot now cos I see results real fast, like 2 months of doing it. The key is just stick to your workout and be patient. I don't find it as "boring" as running, swimming or other cardio (though I'm starting to like running since I started the Couch to 5K training 2 weeks ago). I can see that you love dancing. That's a good start! I like dancing too and I do Zumba once a week. There are so many ways to be active and all you have to do is find something you enjoy doing. I think you should make yourself a workout plan and stick to it. emoticon

    I really do hope that you find a workout you like.
    emoticon Good luck! Be positive! emoticon

    I read your comments about hating exercise. I saw that many people told you to go out walking or riding your bike if you can't afford a gym. I get the feeling that they failed to read your entire post OR don't understand panic attacks and anxiety. I don't leave the house alone for the most part and running around my living room would get bored quickly. I see that you do go to work, however. I can't do that. I have to work from home. I understand the challenges you are facing.

    I used to love dancing, but don't get out much. When I can afford the Kinect, I will be getting Dance Central for it.

    I also have the same issues with protein - but I'm a vegetarian, so am even more limited. At any rate, nice to meet you. If you need a spark buddy, let me know.

    You are going to make it. You are aware enough to be asking for help at SparkPeople. That should count as something!

    Welcome aboard!

    Hi there I too came along your post about protein, chicken breast is a really great way to go to get protien one 6 oz chicken breast will get you most of the way there for a day and it's only 187 calories. Have a great weekend!

    Hey there - came across one of your posts in a thread. Yogurt is a good source of protein. If you get light or low-fat yogurt it's only aout 80-100 calories, you get some protein, some carbs, and some calcium. Take care - happy Sparking!
