Favorite quote (Borrowed from Minicooper)

"Don't believe in abortion? Don't understand gay people? Sexuality make you rashy? Think Harry Potter teaches kids evil and witchcraft? Don't marry a sexy gay witch abortionist. But don't you dare, based on your limited understanding of God and life, make laws declaring that I can't.” – Mark Morford, “Notes and Errata,” San Francisco Chronicle, 8/10/05

Member Since: 8/18/2008

Fitness Minutes: 62,428

My Goals:
To change my lifestyle PERMANENTLY - my health, my fitness, it all has to change.

I want to get back into single-digit sizes and lose the rolls of flab. (update 1/8/09 - I'm in single digits and the rolls are smaller)

My Program:
I'm tracking nutrition, trying to balance my diet and watch snacks, drinking my water, and exercising. I've added back my pilates and Firm routines.

Personal Information:
I'm a 5'10" blue-eyed 45 year old single mother to a 19yo son who is {gulp} away at college. I have a long-term boyfriend who I've been with (mostly) for over ten years. I also have two cats and a spoiled dog. And I'm part of the sandwich generation - my mother lives next door!

Other Information:
Age is kicking my ASS!! So I'm kicking back.

MOTIVATION: I will not be the fat mom.

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.

    Hi Dawn, so glad to see you are still sparking. There may not be many of us left from the class of Aug 18-24, 2008 but I consider us to be the "cream".
