My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to get down to 150 pounds, fit into a size 14/16 jeans. If I can lose more than that, then bonus! But for now, that's my ultimate goal.

My Program:
Basically, eating healthy, eating more fruits and vegetables then I normally have been eating, keeping track of my calories on the Nutrition tracker here, being smart about low-calorie/low-fat treats, and exercising.

Personal Information:
A Canadian by birth, I married an American and I now live in beautiful Vermont, and as of 9/11/06, I'm now an American citizen. My husband and I are active in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) where I love archery, and have just gotten into pewter crafting, and would like to get into scroll illumination. I'm a freelance fantasy artist and I attend conventions yearly.

emoticon How wonderful to be celebrating your five year Sparkversary. Keep going. emoticon

Do watch the YOUTUBE series "THE SKINNY ON OBESITY" with Robert Lustig M.D. whose book "FAT CHANCE" comes out in December. It is so helpful.


I'm reading Richard Johnson M.D.'s book "THE SUGAR FIX" and have learned so much about Metabolic Syndrome/Insulin Resistance. He has a wonderful lecture on Youtube.

Lisa! You are looking great! Wow!
I haven't been using the blogs because my depression has been so bad that I haven't felt like being social. But now with my new medication, I feel social again! haha!
