Hey! I've been fat my whole life. Well, since 5th grade, anyway. I've been through compulsive eating & binging, exercise bulimia, and self-starvation. I started on a healthy path to building a healthy relationship with my body several years ago, but I just finally started working out regularly and really viewing food as FUEL for an athlete in May. For the first time in my life, I have consciously lost weight in a healthy way. And I'm not planning to stop now! But it's not about the weight, for me. It's about being strong and healthy and happy so I can live to be 80. :-)

I'm 29, a knitter, a mom, a vegetarian, and liberal. I'm committed to living in harmony with the earth as best I can.

Member Since: 9/23/2013

Fitness Minutes: 654

My Goals:
I started Jonathan Roche's No Excuses Bootcamp as a "Pay it Forward" participant at 303 pounds. I'm now down to 289 (sooo close to that first 15 pounds down!) I aim to lose 100 pounds, maybe more, we'll see how I feel when I get there. I also want to run a 5k. I finally love myself enough to know that I deserve to feel good and to have lots of energy, which working out and eating good food gives me.

My Program:
I'm trying to get up to working out every day so it's more a part of routine (knowing that one or two days are going to be QUITE light, probably just a 30-minute walk or something.) I am pretty consistent at 5 days a week, with 3 days of cardio interval training and 2 days of strength training. I eat every 2-3 hours, drink lots of water, and have cut back quite a bit on sweets.

Personal Information:
I'm from northwestern MN and have a six-year-old girl for whom I want to be a good example of both healthy lifestyle and a healthy relationship with my body.

Other Information:
