Looking to lose weight and get in better shape, so I can be healthier and more confident about my appearance.


On Jan 5 2008, I will be turning 29 for the second time. I plan to keep turning 29 until I am at least 60, when I may deign to turn 35 for a few years. Or it may jump around a bit... it really depends on what I think is funny at any given time.

On May 29, 2008, I will be celebrating my third full year of marriage to my fabulous husband. Or so I fully intend.

I am Catholic; my husband is Jewish. Neither of us sees a whole lot of point in trying to convert the other. We keep a kosher household, because it is important to him, and not too terribly important to me. For the record, that took a lot of learning, for both of us!

As I type this, I am eating raw cabbage with cottage cheese. Mmmmm, yummy.

We bought a house with my mom this summer, under shared ownership. We're presently living with my mom, my baby brother, a housemate, and various rotating family members, depending on who's in the area at a given time. I like having a house full of people, so this works well for me.

I think that's roughly it, as far as the important stuff goes. The rest changes, more or less without notice.

    Your approach is exactly what we are working on at:

    Anyone who complains about gaining weight at weigh-in and half a dozen folks chime in, "So how are your inches doing?".
