Introduction text Part II --September 5th--

Guess what !! 85 pounds are gone.. good riddance! There is now just 1 wardrobe left in my closet, and most of those are too large. I'm enjoying living in my body again. Now that my love affairs with Lane Bryant, Ben and Jerry are finished, I'm having a love affair with the new life I'm creating.

Introduction text Part I--early February---

Hello, after reading SP web pages I know I have "found my tribe!" Like Oprah, I have 3 wardrobes in my closet; the ugly shapeless clothes that fit me now, the " transitioning wardrobe" and "the fantasy wardrobe,." aka. the ideal weight clothes. I really miss my "fantasy wardrobe"--its time to give up the love affairs with my fridge and Lane Bryant. It's easier to break up with LB this year--the clothes are ugly and poorly made--the fridge is going to be a challenge--but I'm working on it. Ultimately, I want to fall in love with my body again--and have the outside be more congruent with the great gal I am inside! I want to look as sassy as I feel !

Fitness Minutes: 12,991

My Goals:
My favorite visualization and goal is to have the ability to walk naked and unashamed across the boudoir to my future paramour.
Of course I want to get healthy, but the first goal gets me to the gym!

My Program:
I'm shooting for cardio 5x/wk and a min. of strength training 3x/wk.

Personal Information:
I've lived in Seatle for 23 years, despite the grey weather I love the energy and beauty to be found here.

I'm originally from Virginia. I straddle the cultural and familial divide between being a "Damned Yankee" or a "Southern lady"--depending upon which side of my family is speaking. I'm a mix of contrasts. I'll go out for lox and bagels in the morning, finish the day with Southern "comfort/soul food." I speak Southern but have the progressive, liberal views of my NYC relatives. I'm a typical over-educated, extremely opinionated, rad/fem/ hippie chick/earth mother type like those found in the East Village.

I'm far too smart, opinionated, fat and sassy for my own good! Wicked irreverent humor is my specialty.

I' m an aspiring writer-- a cross between Fannie Flagg and Carson McCullers. Related to Faulkner, but would prefer to have the gifts of wit and writing skills of my favorite 17-19th c. Anglo authors--Eliot, Austen, Brontes, Gaskell, Trollope

Other Information:
Aries--with most planets in Aries---watch out world --I'm fiery and fierce! Conceived on Fire Island--so I guess this adds to the fiery part!

Absolutely obsessed with Gustav Klimt.

Loves foreign and independent films, exploring other cultures, travel, horseback riding in the English style--hunter/jumper for the thrills...

Very much attuned to the lifestyle and principles of voluntary simplicity/simple living. So I garden , thrifshop, yardsale, freecycle, barter, and live rent free (Yeah!!!) in exchange for managing my apt building. My life is more abundant than materialistic.

Raised with Judeo/Christian background, now more Buddhist than anything.

Really trying to avoid the stereotype of a single gal living alone with her cats. So I've limited myself to just one spoiled kitty. He's wicked and feisty --just like me.
