Love my acting for camera class, I used to do it for a living In my 20's and have been doing mostly radio for the last 30 years. I miss theatre too but feel I needed to go back to some basics before auditioning for anything, and now I remember why I love acting so much, at first it's hard to break through to the core, but once I touch it, Man it's like being in love. I know you guys know what I mean. Look foreward to hearing all about your acting choices, jobs, and your paths to health. I am learning at 51 it's okay to be what I am right now, even though it's not where I want to be (physically). I suffered terribly with this in my 20's, constantly under pressure to look a certain way etc. Go out and tell some great stories with your art friends, looking forward to hearing about it.

I am very glad I found this group, though the last post's on this Subject were last year, who knows, maybe I will start a trend! I have not been in a show for almost a year now!!!! It is crazy!!! I hope to have an audition coming up for The Producers, with a pretty good group from my state, though my weight is very high now, the highest it has ever been, so I may not be going in with as much confidence as I should be. I need a lot of work, physically and mentally.

Hey everyone! :) My name is Lexi and I'm super thrilled to be back on the Sparkpeople track! I was a member of Sparkteens for a while when I was younger, and switched over a couple of years ago. However, I haven't used it for a while and am revamping everything so that I can continue down the road of healthy living. About Me: I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Acting. Because Acting involves the entire mind, body, and spirit, it is important that I stay physically well so that I am able to take on any role I encounter. I also seek balance, and hope that by stabilizing myself physically I will continue to grow and live a life full of happiness and void of stress! By the end of my Sparkpeople journey, I want to be able to rely on my own motivation to the point where I no longer need the wonderful, constant support that the site provides.
Hi, I've struggled with weight loss for a while but have always been able to fight my way back. As I get older, this is a lot harder. I am a theatre teacher and always seem to get this gain during the holiday season and then it gets worse during rehearsal season as I spend hours rehearsing with children and then make poor food choices due to overall busyness. I spend months taking off 10 - 20 pounds and then gain it back. Each time it gets harder to do. I look forward to finding a "method" for my lifestyle that is healthier and easy to manage. We just finished a very successful run of The Wizard of Oz. My 6-12th graders did fantastic. One of our strongest shows yet. So here I go again trying to take it back off. I hope some of you have some ideas of how I can stop the cycle.
Pounds lost: 4.4
