Clearly, I'm a Dr. Who fan; however, I think the words at the top of my page are a fitting tribute to my battle with food. Not weight. Food. Weight doesn't make me fat, food does. Thus, the Weeping Angels are a metaphor for food in my life (and really, for those in the Whoverse, is there anything truly scarier?). I have to stay vigilant and not blink or I'm a goner.

I believe vigilance is the key to this journey and complacency is the lock. (Wow, I'm just full of metaphors.) I never struggled with weight growing up. In fact, I was downright scrawny. It wasn't until my late 20's that I started having problems. Since then, I've been within 15 pounds of goal (numerous times, *sigh*), and start getting complacent. I'm sure in psychobabble this would be called "self-sabotage."

With all of this knowledge at my fingertips and years of analyzing my eating habits, triggers, etc., you'd think I'd have this thing down pat. Alas, not so much. So, here I am making my way in this world today, taking everything I've got (any Cheers fans out there?).

I need to refocus on me. Actually, I need to find a new motivation--clearly what worked a year and a half ago, isn't working now.

My Goals:
I'd love to get healthy without relying on willpower alone. It's so exhausting to stay focused (no blinking!). If someone knows the answer, please share. lol

I want... improve my 5K pace. workout AT LEAST 30 minutes 4 times a week. Obviously, more is great, but I want my minimum to be attainable. inner thighs to be enemies and never touch again. belly button to be shallow and not the abyss. skin and hair to glow with health.

My Program:

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I'm a total geek and love Dr. Who, Firefly, The Big Bang Theory, Harry Potter, Fringe, Highlander (TV Series), and lots more.

I love to read a variety of genres--even getting into some non-fiction.

    At long last, I'm baaaaaaaaack!!! The spark may have been eluding me for a while, but it's shining pretty brightly this afternoon, and I finally got up the courage to get myself back onto Sparkpeople. I'm glad to find you still here, and I love the new page! emoticon emoticon

    GREAT to hear from you! I'm actually having the opposite problem, with eating well but no motivation to get out and do at all! I can blame the weather, the uncertainty caused by the up-coming furloughs, and the possibly broken toe, but it boils down to me not doing what I know I should.

    We can do this! emoticon

    LOVE the background! emoticon

    I know, I should have said TARDIS but sometimes it seems a bit unreliable with timing/location! Teleporting works just as easily.

    Good job with your swimming laps!

    Thank you so much for your comment on my March 10 blog about maintaining my weight.

    I am glad that I could give you inspiration on getting to and maintaining a goal weight.

    By the way I LOVE your profile pic (I just received a T-shirt that says "Keep calm and don't blink").
