"When I get fat, I stop being fat and be AWESOME instead."

About Me:

*****So I've had to do it: adding the blurb about friend requests. I tend to be pretty involved with my friends - while I won't read or comment on your diary (what you choose to eat is between you and your doctor - and sometimes we go over or under on our own schedule - its no business of mine), but I comment on most everything else - especially killer workouts. I don't really want friends who don't interact back. And especially none who are SO serious that they can't recognize sarcasm or jokes. So if you request to friend me, please tell me WHY, (like what forum comment, or what friend we have in common, or what about my profile caught your attention), and please don't bother if you're (a) easily offended and (b) not so committed that being off of MFP for more than about 3 days isn't a big deal to you or (c) not planning on interacting personally. That said, I like new friends :) *****

"You're the dumbest smart person I ever met" - the funniest thing ever said about me, except when it came from my ex-husband. I'm a marketing data analyst for an ad agency in Kansas City, I play sand volleyball during season, I like to bake (but I don't eat it anymore - I'm a total pusher), love to swim, am trying to be a runner (although I'm the slowest 'runner' on the planet), and I'm the girliest of girls about my nails. (they're fake, but that's the only thing that is on me. yes the red is real, although I prefer to think those are highlights, not evidence of aging). I think that does it?

Why I want to get in shape

***I want to get off blood pressure medicine. (on day 270, dropped from 2 - 20/25 Lisinipril/HCTZ pills each day to 1-10 mg Lisinipril only (no HCTZ).
***I want to not worry about my health.
***I want to buy clothes someplace that doesn't cater to fat girls. (Just bought a whole outfit from Banana Republic - I'm there!
***More importantly - I want to look >good< in a pair of jeans. (I am rocking 18s today (1/27) - but goal is a size 12.)
***I want to travel (comfortably) in the cheap seats on an airplane. (CHECK!!)
***I want to feel like my weight isn't the first thing people notice about me. (hmmmm maybe someday this will come)

My Inspirations

  • Success stories; especially my MFP buddies who hit milestones every day!
  • A pair of size 12 jeans that make my butt look amazing
  • Wealth TV Travel Shows
  • Beach-y vacations
