My Goals:
Goal: 130
...size 4!

I am working on the healthy eating and lifestyle. I know what's healthy and what isn't. I'm just bad at integrating the healthy habits into my life. I'm aiming for a healthy BMI and gaining healthy habits along the way.

My Program:
Following the meal plan -- with healthy substitutions for the foods I don't like.

Drinking 8-12 glasses of water a day. 2 servings of fruit and 4 of veggies a day.

Burning 2000 calories/week. Doing both strength training and cardio regularly.

Personal Information:
I am an attorney in Chicagoland.

I have tons of hands-on hobbies. I spin wool, weave, knit, embroider, paint boxes, sew, and do whatever else peaks my interest. I love to accomplish projects and have beautiful finished items that I know I've done by hand.

I am also taking a variety of aerial dance classes. Right now, I'm taking classes in pole dancing and trapeze.

Other Information:
"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Emerson

Kudos to you for joining us here on the Raw Foodies Team. This will be one of the best decisions you have ever made. Sparkers come here and join this great team for a multitude of reasons. They may be curious about the health benefits of Raw Food and join to learn all about eating Raw. Many join for the weight loss. Many join the Team for a Detox. There are a great many people who do the Raw Food Diet as a Detox but then they realize how alive they feel and how the pounds melted away so effortlessly they decide to continue to eat this way. There are others who will join this Team for the health benefits of a Raw Food Diet. A diet based on raw food can reverse diabetes, arthritis (I personally have experienced this. I went off all of my arthritis meds after only a few weeks), heart disease, cancer (that is how I became involved with the Raw Food Diet when my sister was diagnosed with Lymphoma), eliminates migraines, the list goes on and on.

So join us and learn how to make the transition from SAD (Standard American Diet) to a healthy Raw Food Diet. You will be happy you did!
