Cheers, fellow Sparkers! Long time, no see! Need your help getting motivation & energy to get back on track :0 I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (Hypothyroidism) and have struggled with depression on and off most of my adult life. I want to get my life back, start exercising, get a job again and go back to being the person I've always been. It's a long road, but I'll get there. Since there are so many motivated and awesome people here, I figured it would be a nice place to start over. I eat relatively low carb and healthy, but am not super strick about it and indulge in moderation to keep the weight off. I don't need to loose weight, just go from skinny fat to skinny fit and if possible, fix my sagging butt! Would love to incorporate any combination of dancing, barre, walking, yoga, pilates, low impact cardio (have runner's knees) and strength training into a weekly routine. Need to exchange some fat for muscle (don't we all?) Any tips to beat hypo symptoms, especially fatigue, brain fog, feeling blah and unmotivated, etc? Let me know! Any good books, articles, groups or tips would be appreciated =)

Member Since: 2/25/2009

Fitness Minutes: 17,320

My Goals:
Feel like my old self.
Do at least 1 active thing a day: from going to the driving range to walking 10k steps while shopping or hitting the gym hard and pump some serious iron!
Lower my body fat % and show some definition.

My Program:
Eat Low Carb and 'cheat' when I must, either in moderation, infrequently or preferably both.

Beat cravings with scrumptious low carb alternatives at home. I only indulge on the real deal when I'm out.

Hit the scale when I know I've been doing well or when I've been bad more often than I'd like; that usually puts me back on track.

Personal Information:
A little about me...

I'm Isabella. I'm from Brazil, lived in Venezuela for a while, but been the US for a long time now.

I studied Fine Arts and Architecture and would love start a new career as a stylist or store buyer.

I'm a bit of a geek at heart and more curious than a cat, but love, love, love to dress up for a nice dinner and dance the night away as well.

I wish I could travel more. I've been to Europe, Japan and Thailand. I'm a Londoner at heart & love everything British!

I have two awesome cats, who follow me everywhere I go, make me laugh everyday and melt my heart when they come to me for some attention.

Other Information:
Some interests: Fashion (all of it, from vintage to Haute Couture), Indie rock, Depeche Mode, British humour (Absolutely Fabulous, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers), old movies (Pink Panther, The Party, Some Like it hot), competition shows and reality tv (guilty lol), dressing up for halloween, among others ;)
