I guess I'm what you would call a "yo-yo" dieter. I don't seem to care or have motivation to change anything until the scale hits "YIKES!" and I wish that wasn't the case.... I wish I could always want to go to the gym 3-4 times a week. I wish I didn't "reward" a low weight with the WORST possible food choices (calorically).

Until about a year or so after college, I was able to eat whatever I wanted whenever I wanted (and trust me, I've ALWAYS loved to eat) and remain fit and under 110 pounds. Since then, my metabolism has taken a break and my hips have widened, pushing me from "carefree teenager" to "woman."

Nearly everyone in my biological family has issues with weight, so I realize that genetics are against me and that I need to put EFFORT into being in shape... In the last three years I've gone up and down in weight, with the "up"side getting higher each time around. So, here we go again!

Member Since: 8/3/2009

Fitness Minutes: 32,832

My Goals:
Stop rewarding a lower than usual weight with FOOD.

Go back to college for a higher degree.

Work out at least twice a week (starting off small).

Spend less time sitting/laying on the couch....

My Program:
I work 7:30-4pm Monday thru Friday, so I'm always working when my gym holds the classes I'd like to attend.. I need to suck it up and do my own routine, preferably 2-4 times/week, but it's hard to have motivation to go......

Personal Information:
I always have room for dessert... Maybe that's the problem. ;)

Other Information:
My favorite types of exercise are: skiing, kayaking, hiking, swimming, working out, dance arobics.

    Oat bran is a type of cereal - it is ground so I think it would turn out quite a bit differently if you used oats, but I'll bet it would still be good. You would probably want to soak the oats first though if you're going to use them instead. You would find the oat bran either in the cereal aisle near oatmeal or sometimes in the baking aisle by all the flours and stuff.

    Mmmmm - all those recipes sound great. I am really trying to limit my sweets right now, but pumpkin desserts are usually not too high in calories. I have been allowing myself a skinny cow ice cream bar after dinner - they are only 100 calories and I love them!

    I will look for your pumpkin recipe - thanks!
