Hi! I joined Sparkpeople in July 2012 when I was at 165 pounds (I'm 5'3"). I previously had lost 23 pounds on my own since December of 2011. I hit my goal weight of 150 in September 2012 and have lost 10 more pounds since (as of March 2013). I did all of this through my diet. I love to eat, and I don't feel deprived. I also believe that cooking healthy meals was my #1 key to success.

I was originally 200 pounds+ at the end of 2010. I did not own a scale at that time, and didn't start keeping track until December of 2011.

I love to cook, and make dinner almost every night. Meal Planning is my favorite hobby! Feel free to ask me any questions you have about food, cooking, or planning!

My Goals:
I have hit my weight loss goals, so now I am working on eating healthy well-rounded meals and improving overall nutrition.

My Program:
I cook dinner at least 5 nights a week, and bring my lunch to work 4 days a week. I believe in a moderate approach to eating, and manage to fit almost everything into my eating plans, including wine, cheese, and sweets. I don't believe in cutting anything out.

I'm 30 years old, and am originally from a small town in Central California. I spent 2003-2010 living in Chicago, then went back to California, then moved to Colorado in May of 2012. I live here out in the middle of nowhere a bit NE of Denver, with my boyfriend and basset hound.

Thanks Lisa! the one of me with the Stanley Cup (my profile picture) was at 140! I guess you can't see much of me though.

Your photos are inspiring! You are my goal weight twin, I am about the same height, currently 177 and 150 is my goal. The after photo shows how I used to look and could look like again! Congrats on the weight loss!

Couldn't help but smile at your comment on Ruth's review. I've never made stuffed peppers either!

Ha! Thanks for enlightening me on the adobo. You'd think a high-profile recipe blogger would clarify such things, such adobo IS a kind of chile! emoticon Yes, do try stuffed peppers sometime soon. I hadn't made them for years until a year or two ago when a friend here put me on to the black bean mushroom quinoa stuffed peppers on SparkRecipes, SO fantastic!
