My name is Colleen, and married to David, a wonderful guy. We met in 2001, and married 11/02/2002. Neither of us had been married before, and wondered whether our perfect someone existed. Well we're far from perfect, but perfect for each other, though I doubt "EHarmony" would have ever hooked us up. On the surface we have little in common, but we we both have a very odd, tilted way of looking at the world. We're just still big kids. I think I stopped growing up at around 12, and my husband around 4 (He actually makes me feel "mature").

I love writing and crafting. Where my crafting is concerned, I'm a dabbler. I like using a variety of materials and methods. One of my favorite crafty hobbies is giving rejected vinyl dolls new life, by repainting them and giving them fantasy-inspired makeovers, like the fairy pictured on my page here.

I also crochet, using my own designs. My favorite projects are 1:6 playscale (barbie-sized) furniture, crocheted animals, journal covers and dolls, which I sell on etsy in my etsy shop, dreamstormdesigns.

I'm also an avid reader of sci-fi/fantasy and urban fantasy.

I am currently working on a young adult novel with a young werewolf theme.

Fitness Minutes: 55

My Goals:
Slow, steady weight loss and improvement in health, strength and stamina. Ultimate goal 155 lbs.


My Program:
A reduced-carbohydrate exchange plan much like the high protein food plan described on the frugalabundance.com website.



Personal Information:
My husband and I are both struggling with health issues, caused or complicated by our weights. We want to reverse what we can, so we can live more like the young middle-aged couple are rather than the pseudo-retirees we've become.

    Hi,
    I saw your post on the 100+ Oct Challenge - Glad to have you with us. I noticed you said you did not walk today cuz your balance was still "off". I totally understand that. My balance if always "off"... everyday... I just wanted to let you know you are not alone with dissabilites and weight issues on our 100+ challenge. Had a killer migraine today also, yuck! Anyway, Have a great evening, --Sand--
