Okay, I'll repost my bio since the original is lost in cyberspace. I make no claims as to the faithful reproduction of the original information.


USERNAME/REAL NAME: Elizabeth

MARITAL STATUS: Married

SIGNIFICANT OTHER'S NAME: Sweetie Pie

CHILDREN/AGES: None

PETS: Taz, a black Lab mix, and Sunny, a golden retriever mix

FAVORITE ENTERTAINMENT: Going out to eat!

FAVORITE COLOR: Black, but my high school art teacher said that's not a color, so my favorite color is green.

FAVORITE FOODS: "Ethnic" foods like Chinese, Japanese, and all kinds of Latin cuisine.

FAVORITE MUSIC: Alternative

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Reading, fitness, nutrition, being a WW leader

FAVORITE FORM OF EXERCISE: Jazzercise, but not conveniently available anymore, so Low Impact Aerobics. Ultimate favorite: Dancing!!

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU (AND MADE YOU) SUCCESSFUL: I never let an episode of bad eating prove to me that I am incapable of eating healthy, I just get back to eating healthy and exercising as soon as possible so that one bad day doesn't become two, then a week, etc. My goal is to be healthy, not just to be a specific number on the scale.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Definitely portion control. I can eat and eat like I have a bottomless pit. Some tactful (?) souls have commented: "Boy, you sure can eat a lot for a girl!"
