Occupation: tutoring English online

Hobbies and Interests: photography, cooking and gardening

Favorite Music: large variety. Eclectic

Favorite Color(s): GREEN, pink, turquoise

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: jogging, but my joints don't allow it yet, so biking. and planks..i hate them but love them all at the same time!

What are your fitness/health goals? bike at 13-15mph. Jog a 9min mile, eventually, once my joints are stronger. Otherwise, keep eating healthy and get down to 140.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? Tired of buying bigger clothes. I originally started out at 200 when I was 19. I had gotten down to 150. I was starting to climb back up. I feared going back to where I was. I refuse to do that if I can help it.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Right now it is my joint pain that slows me down a bit. So patience. Also sticking to eating healthy. To view this as a life change not a fad-diet. We all eat a diet, whether it's healthy or not.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? working on strength training, especially in my legs. Being balanced and not getting obsessive about weighing my food, keep changing things up so my body and mind doesn't get bored.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than?: my mother-in-law LOL.. She weighs around 130. But I am a couple inches taller than her so 140 should do it :P..shhh!!! Don't tell

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? I have a few pairs of jeans that I used to fit in. A couple of skirts and some jackets. So I guess my old clothes from the last year or 2 that I just loved too much to give back to the goodwill.
