Shared Fitness Tracker
My name is Tristan, and while you would never know it by looking at me, I was pushing almost 170 lbs. No, it's not due to muscle mass either. I have a strange way of gaining weight proportionally, so it's not really apparent until I step on the scale or until I try to put my clothes on.
I attribute much of my weight-gain this year to a lot of stress, depression, lack of exercise, and erratic eating patterns. So...I'm looking to lose around 30-35 lbs, and I'm sure that the process & total lifestyle changes I make will help me combat the aforementioned issues.
While I have been successful with weight-loss on my own in the past, I think it's even more gratifying to have some type of support network.
I'm armed with a positive attitude, self-discipline, awesome playlist, and numerous inspirational SparkPeople. Yes...I think I have a pretty good chance of getting to my destination. :)
The goal, overall, is to make (as well as maintain) a healthier lifestyle.
I not only want to get down to lose that 35lbs, but tone & tighten, and build endurance so that I may train for vigorous athletic endeavors (e.g. cycling, marathons) in future.

I'm artsy and crafty person when I'm inspired. I love thrift stores, good music (indie, various electronic, experimental, synth-pop, post-rock, etc, etc...), good books, and a good cup of coffee.

Tristan, I am where you are with knowing what I want and where I want to be. As long as are armed with that positive attitude, success is on your side. The ride is long, hard but worth it. I think, live, eat and breathe fitness. What I am going to do and what I am going to eat is always on mind. Others around you notice the results and want to get in on the secret. There isn't a secret I tell them, it is a mental decision to get fit and make it a lifestyle.
