I'm ready to better my life, starting now. As I was gaining more and more weight through the years, I never bought the "this is what I am and that's that" cop- out. This is not what I am. We are not born like this. We are given a body that is weight and height proportionate when we are born, and then we go and mess it up. My body is normal and beautiful covered with a layer of extra, unnecessary fat that I, with my bad habits, created. I have lost weight with exercise before and not once did I think back then "oh, I don't feel like myself". No! I felt great! I want to feel great again. I'm starting now.

Personal Information:
I moved to Jacksonville, FL four years ago from Seattle, WA. where I lived for 12 years. I loved the Northwest and specially Seattle. What a beautiful city I miss it terribly. Florida has a lot to offer as well. It just takes getting used to the hot weather. Because of the drastic change (difference in weather, not walking to everywhere, leaving my friends) I gained more weight than I had in the last 10 yrs. I am wasting all this beautiful sunshine! I'm wasting all the time I could spend at the beach! There's so much to love here too. I want to walk around the waterfront without feeling winded after 15 mins, I want to wear a swimsuit to the beach and feel comfortable, I want to go deep-sea fishing with my husband and not be the one always volunteering to stay behind with the kids as an excuse to not be the only fatty in the boat.

Other Information:
My favorite book of all time is "The little Prince" by Antoine de Saint Exupéry. My favorite movie, I have so many, but lately it has been "Little Miss Sunshine", I can't get over how cleverly the family saved the little girl from being humiliated. I don't get tired of watching it. I love cats, Eric Clapton, Cyndi Lauper, Pavarotti, Callas

    I really relate to what you said on the message boards about having to change the "all or nothing" attitude. Being a perfectionist hasn't helped me much over the years. Learning how to be more forgiving of myself has been much more helpful :)
