Hi! I'm new to this online, accountability thing, but it's time to try some new things. My name is Lea and I am a healthy, active 20 something that loves food. Because of that, and the added stress that life can sometimes bring, I have gained several extra pounds over the years. I have been blessed with a wonderful husband who truly loves me for me and I have always been comfortable with my own body. But, after five years of marraige, we are ready for a baby! Now, I need to get my body ready. It's not just about me and my health now, it's about mine and my future child's.

Member Since: 11/1/2008

Fitness Minutes: 200

My Goals:
I want to loss 30 lbs. by my next birthday (4/11/09) The idea behind this is that we are hoping to start a family this summer. In other words, we want a baby!

My Program:
I am trying to eat consciously, if that makes any sense. I'm not banning any food, because then I become obsessed about them, but I am trying to make better food choices. Also, paying attention to my body, eating when I am actually hunger and stopping when I am full. So really, I am just actually eating like I am suppose to anyway. I am also exercising more.

Personal Information:
I live down here in the Peach State. My husband and I have been married for 5 years. We have a dog named Annie and two cats, Louis and Cricket.

Other Information:
I love to read. Fiction, nonfiction, whatever, I like it all. I'm even one of those weird people that actually LOVE Shakespeare. I also love to cook (and to eat what I cook). I like all types of music which is probably why I love my XM Radio so much. It really enables my extreme ADD when it comes to choosing what to listen to. I also love to dance. I was on a Dance Team all throughout High School and even Minored in Dance at College.

    Hey you! Welcome to Spark!

    Yeah for XM radio!! I'm a cheapskate though so I usually listen to internet radio (like Pandora) whenever I can. I was an English major, so I totally get you on the Shakespeare. ;) I've been reading a lot of Murakami lately; he's the current favorite of a friend of mine.

    Have fun exploring the site. There are so many awesome people out there to inspire you and help you meet your goal!

    I've been here for over a year, and I'm not at goal yet, but I'll get there. Just stay with this and DON'T QUIT. That is what matters.
