I am 26 years old, from Portland, Oregon. I love it here.

My boyfriend and I got back from our trip to Vietnam in December. It was amazing, hot, sticky and frustrating. My relationship actually survived 7 weeks of travel, and I have maintained my weight! I am looking forward to many more experiences traveling the world. We are currently saving our pocket change (and can deposits) for a trip to Mexico.

I am unemployed at the moment, and probably eating too much. Also, I have been slacking on exercising. This will all change.

I am trying not to be such an all or nothing person... I took a little break from logging and am ready to start again!

Another ongoing goal is to keep myself in good health, by controlling my type 1 diabetes. I started my new pump in September, and (with a few more adjustments) it has already changed things for the better.

    Sounds like you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about then. It was just a little bit of insensitivity on her part - and a little extra over-emotional response on mine. I'm dealing. I'll see her again. :D Thanks for being so understanding.

    I went away for a week! You're totally ruling at running! Awesome!
    The Jillian Michael's DVD is pretty affordable (I ordered mine from Amazon) & you don't need much room - just enough to do push-ups & crunches.
