hey, hey, hey!

i'm new to the community so this is the obligatory intro post. my name is roxanne, i live in los angeles, and i'm awesome. i'm not always awesome, but sometimes i have my moments. i'm soooo not comfortable with posting my weight, but according to my height, my healthy weight should be between 130-140 so i guess that's my goal.

i've actually already lost about 20 lbs. in the past couple months so i've been in a really good place, emotionally, just because i've had that headstart. i've been maintaining that weight for about 2 weeks now, which is good, but i'm afraid i've hit some sort of plateu. i did just have my 30th birthday party and came back from a trip to vegas so i allowed myself a week of cheating. but now i'm back on track and trying to hit the gym at least 4-5 times a week and eating smaller portions. it's really hard for me to be on a strict diet that limits my calories or carbs or whatever. even weight watchers is sometimes too strict for me. when i know that i have a limitation, i actually totally want to rebel and break that boundary. but if let myself eat the kinds of foods i want as long as they're in small portions, then i tend to succeed and keep off the weight.

ANYWAY, that's my long, boring story. i'm really excited about being a part of this community and getting to know some awesome ontd friendzzz!

btw, i found this vhs tape a couple weeks ago in some old stuff and actually did the exercise last night. haha, it was basically an aerobics tape for seniors, but i still loved it. (i miss the 80s.)

HAI BB! Welcome to the community!

Anything Denise Austin + eighties = epic win.

Congrats on the recent weight loss! You're one of our inspirational stories already, then!

And also, your icon is FAB. You're the first here to flaunt an Aretha Hat icon.

Haha, my favorite workout tape all through highschool (until I came to college where I have no VHS tape player) was Richard Simmons' Sweating to the Oldies 3. =D

I do a current Denis Austin DVD every so often now with a friend. It's so funny because we have such a love/hate relationship with her. We curse at the screen when she says stuff like, "one more time" or something to the effect, but then we do the DVD again the next day.

Congrats on already losing 20 lbs! That's amazing! And don't worry about the plateau, just keep being healthy and eventually your body will move past that.
