I'm Lisafaz, and I'm hoping to shed quite a few pounds over time. I'm not giving myself a real time limit, because it's more important to me to lose in a healthy way than a quick way.

If you can't make it better, you can laugh at it.

Fitness Minutes: 1,755

My Goals:
I'm not thinking"I'm too fat! My life will change if I lose weight!", really I'd just rather feel better physically than anything else. If you check out my pictures here, you can probably tell that I think I'm pretty cute already... I'm just not a comfortable as I want to be while moving around.

New interim goal: 250. I'll buy a cute new outfit and announce to everyone how much weight I've lost. I'll also wear my tiara ALL DAY.

Here is my ultimate goal: to go on a road trip with no overnight bag (well, some undies) and buy clothes at Goodwill stores along the way with no problem finding the right size. That will be one hell of a trip!

My Program:
I have an actual program now. I'm logging my foods, trying my best to stay within the ranges Sparkpeople recommends. I'm sticking to my cardio regime, upping the minutes every few weeks. I'm' adding to my strength training. I'm trying to offer myself a wider variety of healthy food choices. And I'm really thinking about how I feel when I am full... and stopping there.

Personal Information:
I live in WNC, but I'm originally from Ohio. When I was a kid, I was put on a doctor supervised liquid diet (UGH!) and lost a ton of weight, then gained it back, then went back on that diet when I was about 20, then gained all of it and more back, and you can see where this goes. I've been every size from 6 to 26. Besides being very hard on one's body, it can screw you up emotionally, too. I'm trying to work that out now.

Other Information:
I'm a reader.
Do you know the Blind Melon song from a few years back, "No Rain"? The one with the video of the bee girl? Well, this is my lyric:

"And all I can do is read a book to stay awake
And it rips my life away, but it's a great escape..."

What's the best book you've read lately? I'm always up for a new one. Some of my favorites are The Beach (as in the crappy Leo DiCaprio movie), Shantaram (fantastic story. Read it!), The Very Best Awful (the life of a bipolar is always interesting!) and Oryx & Crake (it's the end of the world as we know it...).

    I love to read too. I listen to a book on tape in my car, right now It's one of Glenn Becks. I download books on my computer when I am working at my desk. Today On my computer I am listening to Jerry Lewis's autobiograpy about him and Dean Martin. Now at home I am reading 2 books. One is The Woman Thomas Jefferson Loved and Book # 7 in the Zion Covenant called London Refrain by Bodie and Brock Thoene. emoticon
    I listened to 1-6 books in that series, but the last 3 are not out on tape yet. And I have to find out what happened to all the people as they are trying to flee the Nazi's in 1942. emoticon

    You have brains in your head.
    You have feet in your shoes.
    You can steer yourself
    any direction you choose.
    You're on your own. And you know what you know.
    And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go.

    You will find from your very
    first moment in space
    your're surrounded by new friends
    all over the place!
