At least the big round spider butt makes my butt looks smaller.

I was recently described as "pleasantly plump" by someone at work and that was the catalyst I needed to make a change. (For the record I did not kill my co-worker, although he may or may not have found his car covered in bird poo after someone sprinkled 20 lbs. of bird seed all over it while it was parked in the employee lot.) I have been trying to lose weight for about 6 months and have made some small (very small) progress. After a hiking trip this summer in which my little sister skipped up the trail while I panted and heaved (hey, she is 21 years younger than me) I found SparkPeople. So far it has been just the thing to keep me motivated and to provide the tools I need.

My Goals:
My goal is to be able to go to the beach with my friends and not be embarassed to take off my swimsuit coverup. I want to feel good about myself again. I have an active job and outdoor hobbies. I'd like to be able to do them without getting winded. I want to get in shape and look great!

My Program:
I'm am taking my lunch to work everyday and trying to avoid the convenience store with the really good fountain Dr. Pepper. I'm also trying to work out more. Most importantly I'm not setting impossible goals and then getting down when I can't meet them.

Personal Information:
I am an environmental educator in South Florida. I was born in Denver, grew up in Kansas and now live in Florida. I love to be outside, but hate cold weather (hence the move to FL). I am really into nature and the environment, but I'm not one of those people who will lecture you about not recycling your soda can...I'll just dig it out of the trash and recycle it for you.

Other Information:
I love to hike, canoe and be outside. I enjoy learning new things, going to new places and I have an embarassing weakness for trashy novels. One of my favorite things to do is to play tourist. I display the same enthusiam for a trip to the most beautiful national park or the world's largest ball of twine.
