Hi, I'm 28 and living in the Seattle/Tacoma area with my basset hound Huey and my significant other Curt. I am a Physical Therapist Assistant, working full-time with the elderly. I was diagnosed with PCOS in Jan 2006, and have had difficulty with my weight since I was a kid. I was 165 lbs at my high school graduation, and 225 after my first year of college. I yo-yo'd up and down for various reasons... Gradually, I went back up to 200.

June 11th, 2010: My Dr. prescribed Phentramine, in an effort to curb my borderline blood sugars, high cholesterol, and above average blood pressure. I was 200.4 lbs, and my BMI was over 36. I looked in the mirror and saw my mom, who had a heart attack at age 42, and a gastric bypass 3 years later. Things needed to change in a big, bad way.

I now work out at the Vision Quest gym in Puyallup most days of the week. I'm in their biggest loser challenge, and also in the one at work. My big goal right now is to hit 150 lbs by my yoga retreat trip to Costa Rica in February. From there, the sky's the limit!

My Goals:
My goal is to be healthy, not to fit into a societal mold of what I "should" be. I work in long term care, and have seen firsthand the effects of poor lifelong health. That's not a fate I want for myself.


My Program:
*1200-1500 Calories
* ACTUAL EXERCISE
*Curbing late-night eating
*Taking my vitamins
*Drinking my water in the right amounts and at the right times



Personal Information:
Born and raised in Minnesota, the land of the meat and potato dinner every night...and lots of lefse in between!
I'm an auntie 4 times over, a daughter, a granddaughter, and a sister. All of my close family lives back in MN, I fly back about once a year to visit them. I love and miss them, but my life is here in Washington, and I have to do what's best for me.
