Always looking for a new friend! :)

Hoping to meet someone special.

A little about me... I'm a huge fan of classic rock. (ACDC, Black Sabbath, Guns'N'Roses, CCR, METALLICA!, Boston, Queen, Styx, Steppenwolf....)

I'm currently going through a "Pink" phase, its nice to have a bit of nostalgia once in a while!

I am addicted to the tv show 'Supernatural', but recently NCIS has become my new love!

I joined Spark around 2006 I think, in my first year of college. I made it my priority for the time I was in London, but then I moved home. It's been a big adjustment, and I find it quite hard to stick to any sort of diet here. That's the challenge. I've been off of it for a couple of years now, but I'm back!

I am in my fourth year of University right now (last semester, how sad!!). I'm taking Business Commerce.

I love to read! (not a fan of reading textbooks though, lol)

Last August I went on a wonderful trip with my friends to Ottawa. We went white water rafting, and bungee jumping! :) It was extremely fun!!

Why I want to lose weight:

Since about 7th grade I have been overweight, I battled myself and my peers in many respects. I had to overcome the hate I had built up for myself, and learn to ignore any comments from people my age. I had really good friends that got me through those times.

So I learnt to accept myself for who I am. I'd really like to be more active, there's a lot of things I struggle with right now. So I have decided to make a change. I am making a conscious effort to eat healthier and starting to exercise.

Goodluck to anyone who like me is starting out yet again...

There's no such thing as luck. Success depends on a well thought out plan that's executed with precision

I know that I'll have regrets, but that's the price of one more lesson learned

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.

Things only seem impossible until you do them.

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon

    Congrats on taking the first step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - in fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


    If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
