I am 26 years old, from Portland, Oregon. I love it here.

My boyfriend and I got back from our trip to Vietnam in December. It was amazing, hot, sticky and frustrating. My relationship actually survived 7 weeks of travel, and I have maintained my weight! I am looking forward to many more experiences traveling the world. We are currently saving our pocket change (and can deposits) for a trip to Mexico.

I am unemployed at the moment, and probably eating too much. Also, I have been slacking on exercising. This will all change.

I am trying not to be such an all or nothing person... I took a little break from logging and am ready to start again!

Another ongoing goal is to keep myself in good health, by controlling my type 1 diabetes. I started my new pump in September, and (with a few more adjustments) it has already changed things for the better.

Member Since: 6/22/2008

I will be physically fit enough to travel in Vietnam in November of this year. I will have more energy, and sleep better.

My Program:
I am doing a walk/jog program for 30ish minutes 3x per week. I am walking 3 miles or "riding the elliptical" for 30+ minutes on the off days. I do cardio 5x per week.. Haven't talked myself into much strength training yet.

[the above plan has been a bit lax of late, but I am still running, and trying to get back on track to make exercise a priority in my life.]

    The manufacturer of the dress sent me a refund check! It was awesome. Plus they offered free tailoring. Crazy.

    I really need to start C25k again.

    I will call soon. Promise.

    I switched phone numbers, did you two get my text? Just let me know if you didn't, because I'll send it to you. I'm always too worried to call, afraid I'll be bothering you. I should call. I feel badly about not calling.
    I put my deposit down at U of M after being offered a 10,000 dollar scholarship that is renewable at the end of two years, so I'm pretty excited about that. I've decided to double-major in English and Prelaw, and I'm rooming with my best friend Mora, which has the potential to be disastrous but will hopefully work out fittingly.
    How did the canned food cook-off go?
    I'll probably call sometime today. It's 9:30 here, now, and I have no idea what time it is there because I'm not sure if Oregon participates in Day-Light Savings Time. So, I'll wait a bit.
    Love you lots.
    That's awesome, awesome, awesome.
    I'll be forever envious.

    You're in Vietnam! And I've been writing down everything I do & eat on olde fashioned paper! ...I took the plunge & joined Weight Watchers - but it's totally working! I hope you come home safe & all your quick drying clothing helped make your trip the greatest!
