Some friends and I at a horror movie fest... Sept 2013
Oktoberfest! Sept 2013
At a wedding with my better half. July 2013
I've been a part of Sparkpeople for years, and like many others, I've had a lot of ups and downs with my success.
I don't use Spark much anymore, as I log over at MyFitnessPal, but I still check in every once in a while to update my weight and read all of your blogs.
I've lost 45lbs, eat healthy and low carb, and try to run as much as possible!
Drop at least 5% of my body weight during the 8 weeks of the Summer 5% challenge.
**Below is what I'm trying to stick to, not necessarily what I've been sticking to:
Eating between 1500-1800 calories per day, and tracking all food.
Most of my exercise comes from running and walking with my dog, Vortex.
A lot of people call me Gnome. I'm 31 years old, I live in the Philly suburbs with my husband, dog, and three cats (all rescues).
Marriage equality and LGBT rights are VERY important to me. I live in a "gayborhood" and I wish the rest of the U.S. was accepting as my town is.
I love biking, running, video games, river tubing, the beach, learning American Sign Language, comic books, sea monsters, and a bunch of crap it would take me far too long to list.
