That's right, I'm getting married! The dude and I finally (oficially) decided to get hitched. Next October is probably the date (10.10.10), but he haven't really sat down with our Rabbi yet....

Every Tuesday evening the dude and I go ice skating for an hour at the gym. I've got 90 minute belly dancing classes I'm taking on Thursday nights and this weekend (2/15/09) I'm starting with a personal trainer on Sundays! Wow. I need to find my waist and loose my bat wings in a year so that I can do try on pretty dresses!

Inactive from April 2008 to late December 2008. That's 8 months of me being a lazy blob again.
It's now January 4th, 2009, and I'm starting over. The 10-15 pounds I lost using sparkpeople Feb-April 2008 are back and somehow duplicated themselves on my partner. We're getting "squishy" and just joined a gym to try and fix it!
My immediate goal is to not bake sweets anymore (I love to bake) and to do an exercise video and/or go to the gym 4 days per week.
I also am trying to do potion control of my lunches (and my partner's) by making bento boxes. Visit viola.eats on Flickr to see them.
-Eggs are my wonder food. They're so cheap!
-Doing some sort of exercise 4 days a week.
-Eat protein with every meal.
-Eat a veggie or fruit with every meal.
-Cut out the simple carbs, try and eat only whole grains.
-Eat healthier snacks (soy protein shake, yogurt, cheese stick, instead of muffins, cookies or a piece or pizza).
My name is Deena and I've lived all over. My mom is a US Diplomat and I've traveled a lot. I currently live in Boulder, CO with my boyfriend/domestic partner, he's great and thinks this site is a great idea too.
(June 2008 update- I have a REAL job as a paralegal now! No more crappy temp jobs, woohoo!)
I keep kosher at home and eat strictly vegetarian (including fish) when I go out. I'm also allergic to nuts, peanuts, chocolate, berries, most citrus fruits and some other non-edible things (i.e. drugs and flowers)

There's a team called Victoria’s Secret Angels and a new team called SP Hotties. Thought you would be interested in joining. The purpose of both teams is to help motivate everyone to finally get fit and be healthy with challenges and daily/ weekly weigh ins as well as sharing beauty, fashion, and fitness secrets and trends.
We are starting a new challenge called the Total Body Makeover; it’s a great motivating way to lose weight. It should help you lose between 6-10 pounds for the month of April to get you ready for the summer (Vs Team). The SP Hotties Team focuses on dieting challenges as well as fitness tips, success stories, and support throughout your weight loss journey. Here’s the links to the teams: http://teams.sparkpeople.com/VSAngelsTeam. http://teams.sparkpeople.com/Hotties.
Hope you join both teams....
I hope to see you on the Message boards... Good luck on your weight loss journey.
