It's been a long while since I've taken a crack at this, and unfortunately, my weight's crept upwards since then. I've been officially diagnosed as pre-diabetic and probably have type 2, but I can't bring myself to go get the big test done. Either way, it's time I did something about this crap.

I'm 26 and a CIS (Computer Information Systems) student at UFV in Abbotsford, BC. If all goes well, I should have a CIS degree by Christmas 2010. Currently, I have an AA Degree with a Retail Marketing Certificate. I'd love to finish my BA with a Philosophy major, and I'd love to minor in Fine Arts specializing in photography.

I hope to one day be able to run my own business.

I have many reasons for wanting to lose weight. First and foremost are health and feeling healthy.
Others include:
- Roller coasters
- Airplane seats
- Motorcycles
- Less physical pain associated with being unbalanced and misshapen
- Get rid of my Sleep Apnea
- Potential Future kids (I can't set a very good example like this, can I? let alone keep up with them.)
- Feel better about the first impressions I make
- Look better for my boyfriend (and a better sex life), as well as keep up with him in general
- Be able to participate in sports without feeling like I'm holding the team back

Some things that might affect my plan:
- Nut allergies
- Not sleeping enough hours
- Carpal Tunnel and Tendinitis in both arms
- Needing to find some damn self-discipline
