Personal Information:
My name is Mel. I'm a 40-something woman living in a Chicago suburb with my husband, daughter and son.

Other Information:
I love to read. I'm particularly drawn to fantasy, horror and mythology; however, my true love in reading resides in Italian Renaissance Literature. (Some fave authors include: Dante Alighieri, Giovanni Boccacio, Susanna Clarke, Neil Gaiman, Chuck Pahluniak, George R.R. Martin, Anne Rice, Nora Roberts, and J.K. Rowling... just to name a few.)

I enjoy watching movies - especially, film noir, foreign films, independent works and musicals (my guilty pleasure!).

I love listening to music. My musical interests are across the board -- however, my CD collection leans towards 80s music, goth & industrial, and swing & big band.

Id likes to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in Feb. The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! Canít do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for a yr. and a half. if u stay within ur calories that are allotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i canít do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. The idea was to keep moving and i did that. So i know with discipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. So i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! emoticon emoticon

Today, as I am reflecting on what my goals for February should be, I came upon the following quote by Don Lancaster:

Most "impossible" goals can be met simply by breaking them down into bite size chunks, writing them down, believing them, and then going full speed ahead as if they were routine.

I hope this will help you as you set new goals or adjust the goals you currently have! Have a Wonderful Wednesday! emoticon emoticon
