Hi all! so I am on the last leg of my weight loss journey, low carb high protein all the way! I eat lots of vegetables, all organic and mostly local foods, nothing packaged, and low sodium. It's taken me over 2 years, and it's been a SLOW process, but I look forward to being in maintenance and toning up a LOT!
I am lucky enough to live in San Francisco, near great grocery stores (Trader Joes!) and lots of farmers markets. It's very easy to eat healthy in California, and my diet has definitely benefited!

Member Since: 1/26/2009

Fitness Minutes: 1,255

My Goals:
This is a new year coming up and I have set new goals for myself for 2010.
12/26 appx 145
1/26 140
2/26 135
3/26 130
4/26 125

My new weight goal is 125 and I plan to meet that by the end of April by following a very reduced carb (40 g max) diet.

My Program:
1) NO simple carbs - pasta, potatoes, rice, and products made from refined flour- very good at this so far this year

2) eat more complex carbs - vegetables and fruits

3) Eat more"good" fats - fish, nuts, olives, avocados

4) No processed foods- VERY good at this so far

Personal Information:
I am from NJ, then boston for ten years, and now San Francisco finally feels like home. I work in the travel industry currently, and have for the past 15 years. My focus is on eco and sustainable tourism.

Other Information:
Low carb and exercise is all that has ever worked for me to lose and maintain weight loss. I have been overweight most of my life and when I turned 30 years old I had enough. I hired a personal trainer who really changed my body. Since then I have been much more active and have a lot more energy. Now at 32 I feel better than ever, and younger than ever.

    Hey girl... so I ended up being the worst partner in the world for our 2 weeks of accountability, huh. I suck. Forgive me! :(

    Hope you had a happy new year sunshine! :)

    Thank you for adding me as a Sparkfriend!!! And thank you for all of the interesting challenges that you come up with for us. I love San Francisco and have done 3 breast cancer walks and some training walks up there over the past few years. My neice just informed us that she has been accepted at ST. MARY'S college up there and so we are all now planning our trips to visit. I look forward to being in SF again this year I am just not sure at the moment when but I will stick with Spark and let you know. I hope that your holidays and everyday are blessed abundantly with love, friendship, family, and fun and laughter. Today and always, Therese
