I'm a 27 year old budding opera singer looking to trim up and loose some of the extra weight to facilitate life, and help me with performing in general. I love all kinds of music and enjoy working with and getting to know all kinds of people!

I started sparking 3 years ago in 2006 when I put on 45 pounds after moving to graduate school for the first time! YIKES! I lost the better portion of the weight over the 3 years, however, would still like to put on a skinnier pair of jeans and be able to share the wardrobe with my future hubby!

This summer while working my apprenticeship, I was told at one point "You're too fat to play the roles you want.. Hollywood casting, it's the brutal truth." Ouch! That hurt, and I'm not Pavarotti size!

Belly button to belly button measurement all the way around:
8/31 - 48 inches
9/7 - 48.5 inches (Too much Labor Day Cheating!)
9/14 -

Member Since: 11/15/2006

My Goals:
I need to lose 7 inches from around my gut to be considered thinner/thin enough to sing the roles I want to in opera

My Program:
I am consuming between 1500 and 1900 calories per day.

I've quit drinking sodas.

I have been exercising more, putting 5 minutes in here or there and totaling up weight loss on the scales.

Healthy snacks, healthy snacks, healthy snacks!!

Yogurt for breakfast and some fruit or cereal. MMmmm...

Very sparse eating past 8 pm, and if I must, it must be healthy

Personal Information:
I am a tenor from Knoxville, Tennessee, relocated to Tucson, AZ for my masters degree, now working on my doctorate in Madison, WI.

I enjoy a variety of activities, and I am a very social person.

Other Information:

    I've been away for a couple of months. Came back on to try to drop another five before strutting around onstage at the Washington Hilton in early November.

    Let me hear from you... hope you are doing well.
