Hi, My name is Amy. I'm from a small town in CT and am studying to become a registered dietitian. I want to be able to prove that I can do what I will be teaching. And I just want to be healthy, I want to feel good, and change my life so that when I become a Mom, I can be an example to my children of what being healthy is.

I blog over at!

Personal Information:
I'm excited to get underway with the SparkPeople program. I am a chronic overeater and couch potato. As I'm studying to be a dietitian, I don't have a problem in knowing WHAT to eat, it's a matter of the HOW. I have high hopes that SparkPeople will keep me motivated to eat healthfully and mindfully and get my butt moving!

    hey there dear! im doin ok. it seriously has been a STRESSFUL week. and im rapidly approaching the week that i work 7 straight in a row without a day off. and to top it off, thats the first weekend that i work alone with no help...just me and the doctor, so im nervous. this weekend (aka saterday afternoon and sunday) will have to suffice for recovery and recooping because im hosting a movie party next saturday and then the crazy week begins. SAVE ME lol weight loss doesnt seem to be occuring, and i feel like the days are literally flying by without me having the chance to slow them down. just tryin to find my footing again and things will be moving more smoothly. thanks for checkin in!!

    just watched your emotional vlog from monday.... I just wanted to let you know you are defiantly not alone about not knowing what is causing your binging. I actually have things in my past, like my mom giving me to my grandparents when i was 18 months old. And other things but my grandparents were so great. And I too was a spoiled child (not overly, i don't My husband also spoils me and I feel love and loved by my family. I'm not sad about my past or anything and yet I keep feeling like I have to feed something inside of me. So frustrating!! I've watched a few of your vlogs now. You are doing great!!
