Hi, my name is Elizabeth! Welcome to my Sparkpage! I discovered Spark People over seven years ago now. I haven''t used it consistently over that period of time, but I sure do better at reaching my goals when I do! I''m a lawyer, a politico, a lover of books, a scrapbooker and crafter! You''ll find me at the YMCA a lot, doing cardio funk and water aerobics. I''ve lost about 70 lbs. so far, but I''m pushing to reach that next huge milestone-- 100 lbs!

Member Since: 9/2/2007

Fitness Minutes: 15,259

My Goals:
- Lose a LOT of weight.
- Be healthier
- Feel better and more confident about myself.
- Find some kind of physical activity that I really enjoy.

My Program:
I currently am consulting a physician to help me with my weight loss. Here's the plan:
-1500-1800 calories/day
- Eat 3 meals a day (2 optional snacks)
- Eat 30-40g protein at each meal (total of 130g a day)
-Eat no more than 1 c. carbs (2 servings) w/ each meal (totaling aprox. 160 g. a day).
- Exercise 5x a week
- Use the food tracker and the exercise tracker.

Personal Information:
I'm a southern girl... born and raised. I call Charlotte, NC home.

I am a lawyer by trade. I also volunteer with local political groups.

I love to read! My favorite genre is romantic suspense (escapist lit at its finest!) Some of my favorite authors are Nora Roberts, Karen Robards, David Baldacci, John Grisham, Sandra Brown, Suzanne Brockmann, Lori Foster, Lora Leigh, Dee Davis, Cindy Gerrard and many MANY more.

I also LOVE to scrapbook and paper craft, especially when I'm making things for others.

Other Information:
Some great quotes:

"If you want to see the rainbow, you've got to put up with the rain." -Dolly Parton

"It's okay if you mess up. You should give yourself a break." --Billy Joel

"Worrying's like a rocking chair-- you rock and you rock but you don't get nowhere." -Mimi (my grandmother)

    I have moved around a little bit. Most recently I moved from New Hampshire to North Carolina. Before that was Connecticut, New Jersey, Minnesota, and two places in Missouri where I was born. This my first time in the real south and I think I like it. How long have you been in Charlotte?

    Thanks for the comment. Your progress is great! Do you have any favorite places you like to go near Charlotte for outdoor exercise? I'm relatively new to the area and I don't know much about what is out here. Have a good rest of the week!

    Thanks for your comments on my blog. I just saw that you're in Charlotte too. The pic on my page is from work. I work on the 42nd floor of the Energy Center. Sometimes the view from here is just far more interesting than work. emoticon

    As far as I know all of the animal facts are true, but I got them from the internets, so you never know!

    Clover hugs are better than regular hugs because they contain 4 times the heart, more fiber and fewer calories. emoticon

    Spark on!
