I love to cook and I love to eat - I guess that's why I'm here! I'm looking to make healthy lifestyle changes, because I know if I can reach my goal weight, I can reach a lot of my other goals! I am a full-time office manager, which pays the bills, but I've recently published my first historical fiction novel and am currently working on a sequel.

I go through spurts on SparkPeople - and when I keep up with it, it really works. But I have a problem with laziness once I get to a certain point. So every few months I reset my goals and start over, which is what I just did. Hopefully this time it will stick!


Member Since: 1/27/2009

Fitness Minutes: 755

My Goals:
I want to get healthy, get fit, and break the poor eating habits I've established over the years. I want to force myself to like vegetables and quit the mindless snacking that always seems to want to be a part of my bedtime ritual.


My Program:
I am trying to make healthy lifestyle changes that I can stick to. As a veteran of the South Beach Diet (although I never got past the first 2 weeks, since the lack of carbs resulted every time in me passing out in the shower), I'm trying to incorporate some of those tips into my everyday life. I try to work out at least 3 times a week (having a job that requires me to wake up at 4 am doesn't make that easy, but I try). And though I'm surrounded on a daily basis by people who don't really care what they eat, how they look or how their health is holding up - and want me to be the same - I do my best to make smart choices whenever possible.



Personal Information:
I'm 33 years old and I live in Media, PA. I've been married since 2007.


Other Information:
I'm a historical fiction novelist writing under the pseudonym Courtney J. Hall. My first novel, Some Rise By Sin, will be published in late 2014.

    Thanks for echoing my comment regarding pious attitudes. I must admit, I have several people in my life who adopt such a stance towards various food choices. - If ANYTHING that attitude turns people away from exploring healthy eating and any good example they could provide is lost in the process!
