No more lies, no more cheating, no more over-exercising and no more over-eating!

More of being true to myself, as being in the light and being honest with what's going on with me will lead to a better acceptance of myself.

Member Since: 2/26/2008

Fitness Minutes: 34,234

My Goals:
Weight: 135 lbs
26" waist

My Program:
Work out 6 days a week: 2-3x strength train; 2-3x run; 3-4x swim per week.

Sleep 7+ hours a night. (This one's a toughie!)

Eat 1 fruit and 1 veggie per meal.

Drink fluids (water, tea) - 8 cups a day.

Spark daily, spark often.

Develop new skills to deal with boredom, stress, loneliness, anxiety, and other things that lead to mindless and emotional eating.


No deprivation allowed - including sleep and the occasional well-deserved, completely savored and satisfying treat!!

Personal Information:
Originally from Stone Mountain, Georgia. Moved to the MidWest in '07 and been here since.

I'm an engineer by trade, Taiwanese by heritage, and 5'4.5". I play the violin, am active in volunteering, give blood every 56 days, and I love being around people. (I also love silence!)

    Thanks for adding me as a friend. It seems we have some things in common. Spark is so much more than just a weight loss site. It is a life changing site, but one has to be ready for those changes too! Best of luck with your program.

    Just cruising through leaving everyone with some motivational thoughts for today:

    “Despise not small things, either for evil or good, for a look may work thy ruin, or a word create thy wealth. A spark is a little thing, yet may kindle the world.” ~ Martin Farquhar Tupper

    “I have learned, as a rule of thumb, never to ask whether you can do something. Say, instead, that you are doing it.” Then fasten your seat belt. The most remarkable things follow.” ~ Julia Cameron

    “When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less & less important whether I am afraid.” ~ Audre Lorde

    “It has been my philosophy of life that difficulties vanish when faced boldly.” ~ Isaac Asimov

    Have a healthy week!!!!
