Hi everyone! I'm Melanie. I love games of all kinds (card, board, computer, video...), reading, and studying Japanese. My dream is to one day be a translator, preferably for literature or comic books.

As for weight, it's gone up and down as an adult, from a high of 247 to a low of 158. I don't really have a specific end weight goal (it changes a lot), but I at least want to be in the normal weight range for my height, which is under 169 lb.

"I've only just started running down the long road of becoming who I am, so if you want to laugh at me or make fun of me, be my guest. I'm going to take a chance on this." -- JASMINE (From "ONE," my theme song for 2011)

1/5/11: Short and sweet - I made a New Year's resolution for 2011. I did all the math and created a weekly plan for calories and exercise so that I can hit my goal weight on December 31st. If you want to know the hows, whys, and wherefores, I'll be updating my blog regularly. Wish me luck!
10/16/11: I've made a weight loss Tumblr ( so that I don't clog up the blog here.
1/1/12: I'm 16 lb. lighter than I was this time last year. It's a start. Hopefully 2012 will be a finish.
