I've felt like a person living in someone else's body for years. Through this amazing site (SparkPeople.com) I am going to change that. Its time to be "The Me I Am"

My Goals:
I've been called "chubby", "stocky", "athletically built (not in a good way)",my whole life. I look in the mirror and am constantly surprised at the peron I see looking back at me. It doesn't match the ME on the inside. I want to change that once and for all. I don't want to be a shoestring potatoe, but I don't want to be overweight anymore.

My Program:
I used to joke with my friend: Wouldn't it be great if we could just open a can of dogfood every day and eat it, knowing that it was the perfect food and would keep us from overeating?" I always hated the planning that was a necessary evil of healthy eating. Making a grocery list was a horrible deterrant. In an act of desperation, after having tried and failed innumerable diets, I googled "30 day diet plans" hoping to find something that would give me a list of what to buy and what to eat. You cannot imagine my excitement when I stumbled on to "SparkPeople". I am so blown away I cannot believe it. I am a new member and yet I KNOW I will be here the rest of my life. I have been here 4 days and have alreay lost some weight and gotten several friends interested as well. So THANK YOU sparkguy, I am forever in your debt.

Personal Information:
My real name is Leslie Adrian and I live in Cedar Falls, Iowa. I have 3 children, 3 step children, and a small business. I own two retail yarn shops called "Crazy Girl Yarn Shop"; one in Cedar Falls, Ia and one in Coralville, Ia (www.crazygirlyarnshop.com). If you are ever in the area, PLEASE DO stop in and say hi. I'm really looking forward to gaining some "friends" on here and walking this path with them. I'll do it alone if I have to, but with friends would be sublime.

Other Information:
Being a yarn shop owner and avid knitter, my special challenge is countering the hours I spend on my butt knitting. I currently go 5 miles on the treadmill daily but this summer I am going to get out there more and get involved in some real life activities. We have 80 miles of bike trails around our fair city and I plan to explore them all. Also, my daughter and I just discovered geocaching. We are hooked...our signiture is that we leave yarn in every cache. :) I'd love other ideas if you have them and I'd love to hear from YOU, really. :)

So sorry about the back...remember to ice it. And about the size 6 comment, does it work to just say I have some size 6's in my closet? I don't actually have to fit in to them, do I? LOL emoticon
