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!!

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.

    Hallo und Herzlich Willkommen zu den Deutschen Sparkern!!! Glad you joined our german team, come and chat with us at the "Kaffeekraenzchen" and you can write english or german or like I do sometimes germarikan, lol - that's what our kids call it, cause they don't speak fluent german, they mix english words with german. You've done an amazing job losing your weight and sounds like your store is AWESOME!! Glad we're on 2 teams together now. I love reading your posts AND THANKS for visiting my page.
