I've done the yo-yo many times.I've been on fad diets since age 13. I am finally ready, emotionally and intellectually, to make slow, permanent changes to my life.

I have finally found some patience and am willing to take the long but steadfast road to fitness. Excited about beginning on this journey!

Personal Information:
My name is Gen and I am from Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA!

I live with my boyfriend (2 years) Jamie. We met online a couple years ago even though we had gone to the same elementary school and grew up in the same neighbourhood in East Ottawa.

I am still completing my Master's degree in Clinical Psychology while working full time as a Consultant for a Testing & Measurement company.

Once I am finished my thesis and completed my degree, I want to travel EVERYWHERE! Right now, we take small camping trips and trips within the country, but our first one on the list is Scotland!
