Me at 217 lbs - January 2011





Getting Ready for Friday Night's Singing Gig - 3/19/10





Backstage in Pirates of Penzance June 2009, Me as Edith with the Pirate King. It's amazing how large you feel wearing a nightgown with no shaping in it onstage.

Singing for a Smaller Me

I'm Suzanne. I recently turned 30 years old. For years I promised myself that by thirty I would get my weight under control, but - unfortunately - the magic weight loss fairy never materialized to zap me in the butt with her cellulitebegone stick. And while I found programs that worked for me and assisted me in losing 50+ pounds, my aptitude for denial, self delusion and sabotage far outstrip my talent for staying with the program and overcoming adversity.

Clearly, I am again ...
I'm Suzanne. I recently turned 30 years old. For years I promised myself that by thirty I would get my weight under control, but - unfortunately - the magic weight loss fairy never materialized to zap me in the butt with her cellulitebegone stick. And while I found programs that worked for me and assisted me in losing 50+ pounds, my aptitude for denial, self delusion and sabotage far outstrip my talent for staying with the program and overcoming adversity.

Clearly, I am again tackling the weight loss issue. Several months ago, I hit what was probably my highest weight ever. Getting on the scale back in June I weighed 292 lbs, and am sure that at some point I hit the 300 lb mark before that. For the past couple of months I've had quite the battle with my mind to convince myself I *have* to lose weight, and after several false starts since June I finally feel like I'm on the right track. My eventual goal is to lose half of my body weight and weigh around 145 lbs, but for now I'm down at 275 and have a mini-goal of being 270 lbs by the end of the year.

So, a little bit more about me:
I'm a part-time opera singer, amateur photographer, actor/all-around theatre geek, amateur photographer (very), knitter, coffee drinker, etc. I live and work in the San Francsico Bay Area. Married for just over a year to my wonderful husband, Dave. No kids, no pets (but hoping to get dogs in the near future). I enjoy coffee, music, theatre, renaissance faire, knitting, and a zillion other things.

Looking forward to getting to know more of you better.

Another dieter out there among the sea of so many others.

Hi! I read your introduction on our Spark Team and I wanted to stop by your page and say "Hi"! Like you, I made many promises to myself at age 30. Unfortunately, I was not able to fulfill those promises, and all of a sudden, 40 snuck up on me. I finally afirmatively decided that I ABSOLUTELY had to make changes. I look forward to reading your page and watching you reach your goals..... I'm also committed to reaching mine before I turn 41!
