FAQ

Q: Who ARE you?
A: I'm a 30-something Seattlite, happily married, and a full-time graduate student who spent the past two years in an extremely intense program that led to some weight gain...which is why I'm here. And my name isn't Zelda in real life, in case you're curious...Zelda is the name of my car. (Believe me, it suits her more than it suits me but the day I made this account I was feeling uninspired.)

Q: What do you mean by "trimming down without numbers?"
A: I will not post my weight here. I will not post my jean size, my bra size, my shoe size (oh you can have that if you want, it's a 7.5...), my shirt size...nothing like that. I'm not focusing on numbers necessarily in this little journey, I'm focusing on ME.

Q: But you say you want to lose some jean sizes...so you ARE focusing on numbers some, right?
A: Yes, that's true, but I will never post the exact numbers here. Not even when I'm down to my goal jean size. Because I don't think the numbers are what make you as a person. Does that make sense?

Q: What was your first goal?
A: Three jean sizes by the time I walk across the stage to get my diploma, August 2013.
UPDATE: I've lost one and a half jean sizes but boy you should see my guns!

Q: With graduation past, what's the next goal?
A: Continue a healthy lifestyle. Lose the other 1.5 jean sizes. Run another half marathon in 2014. Be an awesome healthcare provider.

Q: Are you bummed you didn't meet your first goal?
A: Yes and no. I'd have liked to be super slim but the strength and endurance I gained is worth more to me than anything else. Also, my bloodwork and blood pressure still look pretty awesome.
