Well, I've gone up and down a bit with my weight, but, a few years ago I lost 30 pounds running. It was amazing! At the time I started, I was somehow about 8 pounds lighter than my highest weight. Then in August 2013 I completed a half marathon in Vancouver. More amazingness! But, in September 2013 I decided I needed a change (there were some personal reasons also), so I quit my job and moved to Korea study Korean and during my time of studying combined with relaxation, the pounds came back. I only realized this at the end of July 2014 when, while I was weighing my overweight cat, I finally had the guts to weigh myself. But, I guess it wasn't enough of a shock. A year later (early summer 2015) my back seized and I collapsed. This was the wake-up call I needed. Once I could move again, on the yoga mat I went, and lost 30 pounds in 3-4 months. Had a 2 month break with regard to the healthy eating while transitioning to a new job and moving in early 2016, with a small weight gain, but got back at it working on the pounds slowly. As of January 2018 I'm down 69 pounds, surpassed my original goal weight by 2 pounds, and am still going.

My Goals:
Feel healthier and have a more positive body image!
Lose the weight!


My Program:
Use Spark People to track my caloric intake until I feel confident that I am on track (and then regular check-ins after that). No specific meal plan, just staying within a calorie range and macros.
Use Fit Bit to track my exercise.
Regular exercise - yoga, Jiujitsu, walking, flying yoga, pole dancing, whatever!
Add in running again because I really love it!

I'm from a small town in North Western Ontario, Canada. I'm 37 years old and am happily single these days and wanting to better myself and feel better about myself.


Other Information:
I am an animal lover through and through. I've adopted two rescue kitties here in Korea, and until recently volunteered at a cat rescue once a week for nearly 2 years!
