I'm 36, live with my wonderful boyfriend and our wonderful cat. No kids by choice. I work at a tv station, play video games, love anything Asian (almost), animals, zoo/aquariums/museums. I am 5'4" and had gotten up to 170lbs around 5 years ago. I counted calories and got back down to 130lbs, but I keep messing up and gaining.
In 12/08 I joined the YMCA and worked out almost daily. Not enough to counter my poor eating habits.
05/24/08 we bought Wii Fit and I am working with that and trying not to snack & over eat.
06/08/08 was the last day I ate meat. I'm trying to cut more dairy out too. I already use soy milk, but I have added vegan margarine, vegan cream cheese and similar items to my refrigerator. I also cut high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup & hydrogenated oils from my diet. I am trying to cut normal sugar also for evaporated cane sugar, agave nectar or other better choices. Oh yeah, avoiding enriched/bleached flours too! It is more difficult to find pre-made foods I can eat, but it still makes me mad when someone says "So what's left to eat? Air?"
NOTE: The Red Panda photo as my background I took at the Cincinnati Zoo Feb 2008.

To lose weight and get stronger. NEW: I haven't eaten meat since 06/08/08. Replacing food that has preservatives/chemicals/bad stuff with healthy versions

Wii fit daily! I do the yoga everyday and I alternate the strength & aerobics.
I haven't canceled my YMCA membership yet, but I haven't been there in a month. I would like to go swim a couple times a week, but I need a new suit!

    I came by to see your Sparkpage, nicely done. I see we are on the Wii Exercise Team. How do you like your Wii? What kind of workouts do you do on it?

    Sure soybeans count! Mid range on the antioxidants I'd guess.

    Thanks for the comments on my blog. Doing my best to not get stressed out. Poor DH....when I called I left a voice mail; sounded like the end of the world! I have to keep in mind that with hypothyroidism, taking the meds isn't a magic pill to begin with. (After all, I was obese while taking them!) The decrease in dosage may slow things down a bit, but I'm still exercising and watching my calories - I will not give up! Have a wonderful Wednesday. Blessings, Cyndy
