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.

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.

    Yeah, I started at 394, and now am at 354. It was the hardest 40 I've ever lost, but it's the longest downward trend I've ever had. I've lost more weight, but never maintained a downward trend this long.
