Height: 5ft 6 inches

Default

Screen Name:Misora

Age/Age Range: 28

Family Life: Live with parents, sister and special needs nephew (I would love to move out but my family needs all the help they can get at home and I would miss them. I always got lonely when I lived alone before.)

Occupation: Phone/computer based customer service

Hobbies and Interests: knitting, video games, baking, gardening (I know I need healthier hobbies!)

Favorite Music: filk, folk, classical, opera, golden oldies, techno

Favorite Color(s): greens, blues and purples

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: walking but I want to get back into weight lifting. When I stopped in high school I could bench press 100lbs which isn't bad for a girl!

What are your fitness/health goals? I've got the crazy goal of riding my bike to work one day. I live 7 miles and the roads are kind of busy but the thought of being able to do that in a set time and not be a sweaty panty mess is amazing.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit?
I should probably say when I hit the 300 mark but to be honest it happened one day when my mother was complaing about having a bunch of hamburger that was going to spoil so she made lasagna. I looked down into the dish of oily greasy pasta and meat with no veggies and thought "Am I my mother's garbage disposal now?" It's been 2 weeks since I've eaten a single meal my mother's cooked and I've lost over 7 lbs. I'm hoping that she'll see my example and cut back on the meat and start serving vegetables.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? I don't like to work out alone. My sister and I work out and walk but she works on her feet and is often too tired to go. I need to get in a better habit of working out.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I need to find the calorie range that leaves me with energy but losing weight. I need to work more 'non excercise' activity into my day (things like riding my bike which I hope to do for fun not just for excercise) and I'ld like to get to the point that I know what to eat by looking at it and not by looking it up and doing a bunch of research but I don't know if that's even possible.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : *looks around* To be honest I want to look better than my ex best friend. She lied to me so she could borrow several thousand dollars and when I found out I haven't spoken to her since. We're related though so I keep getting updates. I admit I was really glad that she hit 300lbs before I did and she's getting ready to have bypass surgery and while I don't think it will happen I would love to lose more weight than her. Sadly enough if this is the motivation I need to get my own life in order I'll take it!

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? Anything not from a plus size store. As far back as I can remember we shopped in the plus size girls department and when I was older at places like Lane Bryant and Catherines. I would love to get to walk into a New York and Company, zip something up and buy it.
