Me June 2007
I LOVE this picture!
I lost weight on my own last summer and kept it off until winter came along...I was actually looking pretty hot in a bikini in July of '06, which before then I had never dared wear. Now I've definitely seen the weight come back. My clothes are tight and uncomfortable. I NEED help this time and this seemed like the perfect place :)
I would like to lose 30 pounds by the end of summer. I would like to be able to look good in my clothes again and even need to buy new ones because mine will be TOO big. I'd like to be able to wear a bikini and not feel fat.
I am walking home at least 3 times per week. I live 3 miles from my workplace and it takes me an hour. My goal is for it to take me only 45 minutes like it did last summer. If I don't walk home, I go for a 30 to 45 minute walk with a friend. I have a gym membership which I will use whenever I can, especially for strength training and swimming. I am also going to start bike riding and eventually hope to ride my bike to and from work.
I like dancing, going for long walks, swimming, camping, and eating...LOL
I love art, painting, singing, parties, fairies, butterflies, purple, stars, tattoos, my boyfriend, my friends and my family.

I live closer to the Napa area. I'm not out that way, but if I ever am I will message you.
I counted all my calories 3 days so far, and stayed under my allowed amount. That's a record for me!

Thanks for the add. I haven't been on here in a while. Need to get motivated. So you must be a Depeche Mode fan. They are coming to the bay area in two months! I got my tickets. YEAH!
I tried Zumba for the first time and I love it! I do Jazzercise about 4 times a week, go for walks and work out with a trainer for strength 2 x's a week. so far the sale isn't moving. I know it's because I need to track so this week I'm going to track everything!
Check in with me!

Hi Tina... Just checking in to see how your week was going. Are you saving calories for the 4th of July weekend? =) I was doing so well and then binged for two weeks gaining 4 lbs. I've only got two more to lose to be back to what the tracker says (I'll be damned if I was going to change that little bugger--that fairy is going down, not up!).
I did enjoy my empty calories in ONE Margarita (puffs out chest proudly) last weekend.
Waiving hello and hoping all is well. -Karen

Hi Tina! You're are a doll! LOL Thanks for the words of praise on the "Help with Weekends" thread. Proud of you, too, girl! Woohoo!
This is my second time around. I swore I'd never be fat again after losing 100 lbs, but a stressful job and a bad divorce contributed to the "new me." I'm a woman on a mission and hell bent on getting this off!
Like you I'm an artist and work with all types of mediums...it's a great stress reliever, isn't it?!
Anyway, I just wanted to cruse by your page and send you a big-o-California howdy after your kind words. I hope to see you on the boards so we can keep schmoozin' as we're losin'.
Best of luck on your journey, and keep up the good work. -Karen
