I am 41, an introvert, suffer chronic depression, lost 100 pounds in 15 months with Spark (5 years ago), gained it back, trying again! I live in Maryland and hate it. I enjoy playing Rift and other video games, reading, writing, cooking, amateur nature and macro photography, my German Shepherds, my Standardbred and Tennessee Walking Horse, and woodworking. I prefer to be "active" rather than "exercise." I do barn chores, go horseback riding, and enjoy riding my bike on rail trails and towpaths.

I'm part of the Spirited Underdawgs team for the Summer 5% Challenge.

Personal Information:
I'm in my 40s now and still enjoy bike riding, horseback riding, cooking, reading, writing, drawing, photography, woodworking, and chasing after my GSDs.

I have kids who are mostly grown (9. 14. 17, 19). I live in MD and absolutely hate it. I moved here from ND and would love to move back to the Midwest.

I like playing MMOs like WoW and Rift when I feel like sitting around and being a slouch.

I work at home as a medical transcriptionist for the Veterans Administration and I'm also the barn manager where I board my horses.

Other Information:
Don't make excuses. Your friends don't need them, and your enemies won't believe you anyway.
