I used to be the skinny much so that my nickname was Q-tip. I could eat anything I wanted and it seemed to evaporate. Fast forward a few years, replace the bike with a car, subtract most my free time, add a husband and the discovery of chicken fried steak. I steadily crept up to obesity.

Since recommitting to my health I am following Tim Ferriss' 4 Hour Body Slow Carb Diet (vegetarian version) and I've lost 30 of the 40 pounds that I need to lose. My cholesterol is down. I have finished a half marathon (the knees still say no to running).

I still have more weight to lose, but I am happy with the progress I've made and appreciate the resources here that help me do it.

Member Since: 12/1/2006

Fitness Minutes: 21,827

My Goals:
1. Reduce weight to 145 lbs. before the end of the world.

2. Maintain cholesterol at 238 using diet alone.

3. Recover from serious financial setbacks of the past two-three years.

4. The fourth one is just for me!

My Program:
1. 4 Hour Body Slow Carb Diet (vegetarian).

2. Exercise: treadmill walking, spark videos and yoga.

3.. First, I am starting with what I CAN control. I am becoming better organized and eliminating "stupid stress" from my life. (I really like that phrase).

4. I am doing more leisure reading and writing in my journal. I burned out on reading for pleasure when I finished my last year of college. I miss it.

Personal Information:
I grew up in Santa Cruz, California, lived in eastern Nebraska for a while, and came back to California in 2000. Now I live in rural Monterey County.

    I'm not freakishly tall or anything, 5'8". My scale reads the same as the scale in my dr's office. I swear I don't eat lead pellets or anything!!! I DO do a whole lot of strength training though.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog post.

    What you wrote was silly little line,
    but I've done the same, from time to time. :)

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog post. As for the humor, when you have no other endearing qualities, you can always be funny!
    And you are right, when faced with a few bad weeks, you must look at the overall trend and keep a positive outlook, not focus on the bad weeks.
