Hello, I'm Madeline.

I don't just want to survive, I want to thrive. I want to stop numbing myself with food and let myself feel everything - the grass under my bare feet, the hurt of a friend with cancer, the promise of a fresh beginning at college. I've used food to hide, but I'm not afraid anymore. I am proud of who I am. I choose to embrace both the beautiful and the unbeautiful.

I'm tossing off my excess weight and leaping into a big, fat, juicy life.

Current Weight: 155
Next Goal Weight: 145
End Goal Weight: 130 pounds

My Goals:
-Eat less.
-Move a little every day.
-Reach for the healthier treat.
-Don't shrink from hard or inconvenient action.
-Don't multitask. When I eat, eat. When I study, study.
-Reach for refreshment, not entertainment.

My Program:
I eat healthy.
I move often.
I mess both of these up.
I keep going.

Personal Information:
I collect words like grandmothers collect buttons, and I have also tried (less successfully) to collect coins, stamps, and napkins. I drink my tea iced, my coffee black, and chai by the gallon. And, for some fabulous reason, I can't stop writing.

Other Information:
“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” ~Mark Victor Hansen
