Hi! I'm a 33 year old college freshmen and self proclaimed hippie. I've always been "not slender" and my Intention is to get healthier (and, yeah, hotter too:) I've recovered from a lot the last couple of years and it's given me the confidence to finally deal with my weight.
UPDATE: I'm now 36 and a junior in college, majoring in Social Work with a minor in Chemical Dependency. I am working to balance getting healthier with self-acceptance, one day at a time!
UPDATE: 39 years old, graduated summa cum laude with a BSW, lost 20 ponds last year that I have maintained for 7 months, moved to TN, and got engaged to the love of my life! Ready to 'level up' my getting healthier game ;)

Member Since: 10/15/2011

Fitness Minutes: 46,272

My Goals:
I am getting healthier on all levels.
I am dealing with life instead of coping.
I go to bed with an empty stomach to facilitate healing and rest.

My Program:
I am using awareness in the present moment to make conscious choices about what and why I am eating.

Personal Information:
1. my middle name is the one I write under, Elaine
2. I talk too much about too much
3. I see myself as a back-to-nature type, but I've never had a garden
4. I see myself as an independent woman, but I haven't been single in years (til now: 2011)
5. Terry Pratchet helped me find my sense of humor.
6. Stephen King helped me discover my honor.
7. Marion Zimmer Bradley helped me to be able to read between the lines of HIStory
8. I love to read
9. I need spellcheck
10. I have done a lot of successful work on myself
11. I have a lot of work to do on myself

Other Information:
I've always looked outside myself for validation: be it causes to fight for or against, a job to do well, an attraction to spark, a secret to be trusted with. I emerged from a recent fight for my life with the gift of desperation. I have a lazy nature, and it wasn't until I nearly lost my life that I realized this life is not only worth fighting for to keep, it's worth fighting to live it well. I'm not sure what end result I'm going for, but I know this is part of my journey there!
