Hi, I'm a 25 year old biracial woman from Chicago (and this is an older picture! I am much heavier now)... I am so ready to get off the couch and on the StairMaster, as well as stop eating gi-normous servings of fatty foods... I have managed to become a hermit and I am through wallowing in self-pity. By the grace of God, I was delivered from drug addiction and alcoholism a year ago (I basically went from "in the club" to "on the couch"). I am determined to make a permanent lifestyle change and let the fabulously confident woman within come out to play.
Much love and many blessings...

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to lose sixty pounds to put me at my ideal weight of 145. That is basically the perfect weight for my frame. I would like to get back into either a size 8 or 10. Since it took me a year to gain all of this weight, I am giving myself (at least) a year to take it off.


My Program:
"No sweets or grease." Plus only drinking H2O, with the exception of one cup of coffee per day. The only fast food I will eat is Subway (no mayo or cheese on the sandwich!); I have tossed all of my take-out menus (and there were many!) in the trash. BIG commitment: Go to the gym every Mon, Wed. and Fri (1 hour per day... 30+ mins cardio, various bicep and tricep exercises)... with Friday being my one "cheat" day out of the week, so I don't feel like I'm depriving myself. I want to gradually eliminate meat from my diet and become a vegetarian.



Personal Information:
I was born and raised in Chicago, though I grew up on the South Siiiiiide I've been living on the North Side for a little over a year now... I'm a born-again Christian, hyper-sensitive (especially to other people's needs) and I am single for the first time in 13 years. YIPPEE!!!


Other Information:
I'm a total nerd... I love to read, have been a bookworm since childhood, and am currently going to school full-time in the evenings while working full-time during the day. I'm a junior in college, and I hope to get my doctorate in human development one day (right now I'm going for my B.S. in Education, with a focus in inner city studies). I love to swim, ride my bike, go to the show (as we say in Chicago), walk along the lakefront and most of all I love to laugh.
