I want to be the best I can be. I want to enjoy my life and be able to do anything I think I might want to do. I want to be able to wear clothes from any store I want to shop in. I want to be able to sit by a hotel poll without feeling like I should hide myself. I want to live well and play hard.

What it all comes down to is that I want to feel free to be who I am in my mind. For I am a Succulent Wild Woman and deserve to live a juicy life as Sark describes.

Happily married to another work-a-holic.

So far, I've lost about 60lbs. 2006 was a year spent on a long journey trying to find what works for me and finding ways to stay motivated. It wasn't an easy year, in fact I quit trying after the first 30 lbs and just maintained for about 6 months during which I gained back 10lbs. I jumped back on track in November and have shed 20lbs+. 2007kicked off to a rough start, but I've learned a lot along the way and feel stronger for all of the challenges.

Other Information:
Favorites: My DVR!

TV: CSI Miami, CSI
New York, Bones, The Unit, Criminal Minds, Numbers

Music: Theory of a Deadman, Buck Cherry, Nickelback, Seether, Keith Urban, Pink, Fallout Boy, Maroon 5, Saving Abel

Sources of Motivation: The Bigest Loser Workout DVD, book, and show; being able to buy cheap cute clothes at places like Walmart and Target; wanting to keep up with the kids
