My name is Addie. I manage a Hot Topic store in Tukwila, WA. I love fashion and merchandising (setting up displays) and dancing. I dance throughout the day at work quite often. When a good song comes on, you just gotta!
I also bake "designer" cakes (I'm a novice, but they are pretty good, or so I'm told) for fun.
I started SP in 2008 and reached my goal after 2 BLC challenges (over 50 lbs lost). SP is the best thing I've done with myself in my 20's. I love what I have been able to accomplish with not only my weight, but a new-found confidence that came with being able to accomplish something I never thought possible. I changed my entire perspective and knowledge on food and exercise and even though I had an accident that caused some weight gain, I have continued living healthy and happy. I am now able to exercise again and will be back on track in no time!
Anyone can do what I did! Dedication and immense support from all my friends on SP made it happen!!

Member Since: 7/3/2008

Fitness Minutes: 13,091

My Goals:
To build my strength back up and overcome my recent physical challenges.
To build a new exercise routine and move on, mentally, from what my body can't do now.
To stay on track with diet to achieve my goals.

My Program:
I learned to eat well and I stick to it. I plan meals for the whole day and work in snacks and treats to help temptation (I eat dessert EVERY DAY). I spent 5 months doing about 300 minutes of cardio a week and 50-100 minutes of ST. It's not easy, I can't lie. Just worth it.

Personal Information:
I'm Addie.
I live in Kent, WA (just outside Seattle).
I love sparkpeople and tell people about it every day! It has changed my life. I have a body that I didn't even know I could have and I'm proud of my dedication and I have a lot more confidence. Even work has been more successful, I really think it's transformed me. Thank you sparkpeople!!

Other Information:
I really like to cook. I love especially cooking for large groups of people. I have been pescetarian (no meat except seafood) for 12 years.
I live for music. I love to listen to music (that's made by talented musicians, don't really care the genre), play music, dance to music, etc.

    Thanks for the friend add! I just finished reading the four Twilight Series books and thought about you and your stories. I still have not seen the movie. I wanted to read the book first. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks will get to.

    Hi Addi, THANKS for the friend add.
    CONGRATULATIONS on your weightloss, you did an amazing job. You are so busy and still always had time to stop by and post. I've been slacking, eating wty too much and NOT exercising lately. I had way too much fun to spoil, cook & bake for everyone over the holidays. BLC9 will be MY TIME TO SHINE!! Wishing you & yours all the best and a HAPPY & HEALTHY NEW YEAR 2009
