I am a 40 year old female, who wants to get healthy and be in better shape. Been gaining weight since mid-thirties and finally tired of it. Oddly enough I have no trouble being active, but I finally figured out that I eat too much.

Personally, I am a dancer, atheist, humanist, animal lover and general nerd.

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." Friedrich Nietzsche

    I really liked what you wrote on a recent blog about "dieting". Like you, now that I am in my 40's it really isn't about being the skinny girl, it's about getting a handle on my poor, ingrained eating habits and not using food for anything other than nourishment.

    I have been learning a lot about myself on my new journey and in the process lost over 30 pounds...

    Anyway, just wanted to say I like what you wrote. Keep up the great job and the healthy lifestyle!
