Hi! If you've come here you either know me or you saw something I have said. If it's the former, I'm sorry. If it's the latter..well I won't tell you to run, but you might want to start warming up just in case.

So about me...hmm...

Well I have always been the "Fat Girl" (but I'm DONE now!!), ever since I can remember. I started this thing to loose weight, but it's morphed a bit. Now I want to like myself and be healthy. I am learning how to deal with stress, and figuring out what kind of person I want to be.

Stay tuned to see how things turn out.

Member Since: 5/14/2007

Fitness Minutes: 3,566

My Goals:
Run a mile (at least!!)
Touch my toes with my legs closed
Cross my legs at the knee
Do a situp!
Do a pull up!
Be one of those "crunchy people"
Take a martial arts class
Kick butt! Both my own and other people's!!

Other than that? Um...not sure, when I know I'll put it here!

My Program:
Right now, I'm just making small changes that will add up to big ones. So for now, I'm not eating out at all, and I'm incorporating more leafy veggies into my diet.

Oh, and I'm getting some sort of exercise every day, even if it's not in a gym.

Personal Information:
I'm a 4th generation Texan, living in the Dallas area.

I'm somewhat of a nerd, but in a good way I think.

I garden, watch Scifi, hang out on sparkpeople, work, work out (sporadically, but getting better), cook, play with the dog, meditate (sortof), flirt with running...hmm..idk what else....

Other Information:
No matter how slow you are, you're still faster than the person on the couch.

    Hey, you asked about a vision collage? Here is a spark article about it:

    You can get SP points if you make one as well!
    Good luck!

    Hey girlie, I tried to comment back about the snake comment you left me, but it didn't take. You must have had a heart attack running over a snake with the mower! Lol. We try and steer clear and do pack a cell phone just in case. But there's lots of online resources about what to do and what to look out for.

    Thanks for the cheers I can't believe HCG has gotten me this far. I am not saying it was smooth sailing but I am here and doing well today. You can do this too. It is possible to be a size 10 after being up to an 18. I never thought I would see it. I am keeping my old jeans as a way to measure my success so no they are not for sale (lol)

    Thanks for your comment! It hurt my feelings at the time, but I look back and just have to laugh.

    I read your msg about yourself, and it sounds like we're on similar paths. I used to obsess about trying to be skinny, but it has definitely turned into so much more.

    It's nice meeting you =)
