I want to wow people. My propensity for drama inclines me to say that I want to be so thin people stop me on the street and tell me I have an eating disorder, but I know that isn't healthy. It might also be offensive to people who have actually had eating disorders. But I'm just being dramatic! You'll soon find I am quite reasonable. I'm gonna go for it, ten percent at a time. Please be my spark buddy!

I want to be able to shop in the regular women's section again. I want to be able to be hot while I'm still young.

I am 5'7" and as for my age, I can vote, but I can't rent a car. Please leave me a nice message if you feel at all inclined. I need all the motivation I can get :D

220: ManiPedi
210: Eyeshadow palette + 2 Brushes
200: 3 Books!
190: Exercise Shoes
180: Work Out DVD + Mani/Pedi + $20 of w/e money
170: SP Work Out Shirt + Book
160: Heart Rate Monitor
150: $50 of w/e money+ Mani/Pedi
140: Cardio Machine??
130: Old Timey Bathing Suit!

230 to 207 (DONE! 4/17/2011), then
207 to 186, then
186 to 168, then
168 to 151, then
151 to 136, then
136 to 130!!!

I am in need of a SparkBuddy! Ideally I would like a SparkBuddy lady to check in with daily to keep me motivated and to motivate her too. Someone similar to me would be dandy. (Young, 50+ pounds to lose, female, etc.) If you are interested in a serious accountability buddy (via email, sparkmail, or text message at least once daily), lemme know!

Maybe not in that order, but something like that.

My Program:
Lose ten percent of my body weight at a time until I reach 130 LBS, Katy Perry's weight. She's a hot muffin.

Free day Fridays! Or any day, but just one a week!

Drink lots of water and work out even when I don't feel like it.

    I have been exercising! Did the strength training for the first time yesterday and it just about killed me! today I have been one big ache because of it. Weirdly, I find it quite fun, putting in my food and ticking off the things i have/haven't done. I come on here like 5 times a day for no real reason. and I eat something and I'm all running off upstairs like "gotta put it on my spark page!" like it's some weird treat? ah well, I never fooled myself that I was normal emoticon

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
    Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
