It's no secret -- the last couple years have been really hard on me. I climbed to heights of weight I never thought I'd reach, simultaneously sinking into depression and anxiety over the fact that as I inch closer to my thirties, I find myself falling further and further behind where I thought I was going to be by now. The entire world seemed to be moving on without me, and I was frozen in place, watching it all happen while I aged without my own permission.

I finally reached a point where that isn't working for me anymore. I began my journey again on July 10, 2013, and with that, I lit up a small hope. My goal, as it is (and as cheesy as it might sound) is to light up more and more with each passing day, until I'm surrounded by a million tiny lights that I've created -- enough to see my way again.

Member Since: 8/12/2010

Fitness Minutes: 1,700

My Goals:
I want to be okay. One pound at a time, I will be okay.

My Program:
Right now, I'm working on the following:

-Drinking eight 8-oz. glasses of water per day.

- Getting back to a place where I can exercise (and stand with my feet together.)

- I'm giving up night grazing for good.

Personal Information:
I'm a proud native Oregonian, a 20-something musicologist. I teach voice to college students, conduct, work for a local orchestra, perform, and a motley collection of other things on the side.

I'm also a gamer chick and a semi-professional smart-ass.

Other Information:
My interests are wide, varied, and slightly random. I can't begin to write them all.

    Thank you, Jami. Actually no one ever gave me a diamond before!
    Wish you could have been here this last Sunday afternoon to dance to the reggae of the Earthtones. Local band but they're very good!

    Glad you're back, whether you feel good or's good to be here anyway!
    Funny, I thought of you just the other day - AND every time I play Three Little Birds, I think of you. "Don't worry about a thing...every little thing's gonna be all right!"
    I'm retiring on August 1st. emoticon
    My successor is moving here from San Diego with her husband and baby son. It's very exciting! and I can't wait to be FREE in a manner of speaking.
    Whenever you feel like sharing, I am here. emoticon emoticon emoticon
