After 14 years of being overweight, I'm just sick of letting my weight define the limits of my existence. I've done amazing things in my life - I've traveled the world solo, I've made huge career leaps, I've created amazing things, I've achieved in school and work - yet I still allow my weight to confine me. I'm done! No more!

-----------------------------------
5/21/09: REWARDS PLAN . . . nixed it! I used to have a list of the things I was going to treat myself to once I reached each weight goal, and you know what? Finally realized it doesn't work. Dangling the most beautiful and expensive carrot in front of me wouldn't get me moving. Duh. If an external reward was going to do it, it would have done it already.

So another sparker's page inspired me to reward . . . consistency. Not pounds, but consistency. I LIKE that.

Fitness Minutes: 6,577

My Goals:
For once in my adult life, I'd like to experience being a "normal" size. I want to be able to walk into any store, pick any style of garment (okay, no hot pants) and know that somewhere on that rack is a size that will fit. I want to not be that invisible fat person in the corner. I want to be seen!


My Program:
Right now, I'm just working on developing some healthy habits and slowly upping the ante. I've done the roller coaster thing for far too many years, and always with unrealistic expectations. So I'm going slowly, and trying to be compassionate with myself.



Personal Information:
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and am a working artists (read: I get a paycheck). Single and looking!
