I am 28 years old, a young career woman who is engaged to be married in September. I work with Autistic children and I love to sing and play music and write. I also belly dance for fun and exercise and I have a show coming up this spring! I would like to lose 15-20 lbs before my belly dance show in the spring, and about 30 lbs before my wedding day in September. I've learned that the best way to do things is step by step. I hope to find inspiration through the site and in the meantime be an inspiration to others!

Member Since: 3/2/2009

Fitness Minutes: 365

My Goals:
Well, I have 2 months until my belly dance show and 6 months until my wedding, so I have some work to do! My first goal is to lose 15 lbs, and then make a second goal.

My Program:
My program consists of:
1. Tracking my nutrition to stay within my calorie and fat goals for weight loss.

2. Doing more rigorous cardio/strength intervals 3x a week and trying to fit in another two fun but healthy workouts in the week.

3. Tracking my fitness and strength training in order to keep up with progress and calories burned.

4. Support myself emotionally in this process by attending weekly counseling sessions through the faculty assistance program my work provides and staying plugged in to the Spark People community.

5. Use the positive reinforcement schedule style I use every day with my clients at work. Positive reinforcement greatly outweighs the impact for consistent positive change in comparison to punishment.

Personal Information:
Hometown: Atlanta, GA
