I have been dreadfully absent for a few years now. Live has been crazy and I continue to struggle with just day to day life, never mind weight loss. However, I am now in school taking a certificate program in hopes of getting a job that does not make me cry just think about it. It was actually my current class that brought SparkPeople back into my mind and got me back on the site. Hopefully 2017 will bring better things, but for now I struggle to get thru the holidays one day at a time.

Member Since: 2/12/2008

Fitness Minutes: 4,603

My Goals:
My Goal is to be healthy and happy, and to have a baby (or 5) and live to see them grow up also health and happy.

My Program:
I am working on the 10% at a time model (loosing 10% of your total weight at a time until you reach the health level). Goals seem more reachable that way and more chances to see success along the way then failure when your goal just seem so far away.

To do this I am going to:

*cut down on portion sizes

*eat more whole foods and skip the heavily processed stuff

*get off my butt and move.

*log what I eat even when I am going over my goals or eating unhealthy stuff (I'm not a saint after all and indulgence in moderation can be ok)

Personal Information:
I�m not one to post to much personal detail, I find I am willing to share more and say more online if people don�t know too much about me. Between my own trust issues and my mother�s very vocal options on giving out such information, I find it easier this way. I will not lie, what I put here will be my truthful thoughts, options and stories. But my real name, email address and other such details will not be posted. (oh and if you do happen know me, I appreciate your courtesy in not posting or giving out my personal details either)

That being said call me Brie or Brielana as you see fit.

I lost my job several years back and after a couple of years of unemployment I now work for a fast food restaurant. I continue to look for other opportunities that better suite me but as many of you know, it's a tough job market out there.

Other Information:
I like to read, mostly Fantasy stuff, but I do like a bit of variety. Chronicles of Amber, Thomas Covenant, Harry Potter, Magic Kingdom for Sale, The Deryni and various other series of books. I also tend to read various Ann Rice books as well (her erotica as well as her more traditional works)

I also like to watch movies, Girl Flicks, Period Pieces, Action/Adventure, Fantasy, Sci-Fi and what ever else catches my eye. We (hubby again) don�t have cable or satellite so our TVs are Mostly used for playing games or watching DVDs. We collect various TV serious once they come out and watch them that way (so I am always behind the buzz on shows). We currently collect Mentalist, Fringe, Castle Haven and Bones. But we also have complete sets of Buffy, Angel, FireFly, Jericho, and Hereos.
