following: pavoreal's own diet
performance: losing 0.6 lb a week

I'm a 33-year-old girl living in the LA area after a recent move from Texas. I just got married about six months ago and have put on a lot of weight since my marriage and move out west. My job and personal life are both fairly stressful, and a lot of times I turn to food and wine as comforts. I want to get in shape so I can feel good about myself again, go to the beach, and also just to be healthy.

I am also a lifelong vegetarian.

Just curious : What made you fall for your better half?
My husband is awesome in a lot of ways (great cook, seriously handsome, brilliant scientist, hilarious sense of humor), but the coolest thing he has done for me and for our relationship is to rebel against the arranged marriage system in his home country of India. He had to fight for two years for his family to even agree to meet me. We finally got married in India last July in a traditional Hindu ceremony with 1,000 of his family and friends attending. We are now adjusting to our bi-cultural household...which is pretty much why I am here at this site - eating insanely delicious Indian food nearly every day is not kind to the waistline... Smile

Exercise music - what are you listening to?
I stream Pandora on my BlackBerry while exercising. What I listen to definitely depends on my mood, but I find the Pandora Stations I use most while working out are Lil Wayne, The Killers, and The Stone Roses. What I love about Pandora is the surprise of not knowing what you'll hear next. I made the $3 a month investment in the ad-free version...best $36 I have ever spent.

Reasonable - ish fast food options please
Starbucks is a good option. They have several different choices that are healthy, like the fruit/nut combos, hummus and veggies, etc. Grab a veggie and hummus plate, a banana, and an iced green tea - seems like that would be a lot healthier than the Chinese take-out. Just stay away from the pastries. Smile

What WAS on your most eaten food list
1. Starbucks venti breve misto(this is a 20 oz drink that is 50 percent half and half, y'all! And I would add tons and tons of sugar on top of that...)
2. Mozarella sticks from Sonic
3. Dr. Pepper + lime
4. Domino's cheese pizza
5. Paneer (which is Indian cheese) Butter Masala + tons of rice and naan
6. Any kind of vegetarian pasta involving lots of cheese/cream sauce
7. Wine
8. Other booze
9. Einstein Bros. asiago bagel + cream cheese
10. Cheese sandwich on white bread

Gosh. I sure do like cheese!

For the Ladies: Sports Bras?
Enell looks awesome - I love it 'Performance Apparel for Well-Endowed Women' - pretty straight to the point! I went through several bras before getting some Champion brand ones with underwire at Sports Authority. They're good bras, but again as others have stated they are hideous, only come in white, and are pretty hard to put on - have to pull it over your head like a shirt, and then manage a quadruple hook and eye situation in the back. I often find that I have actually put it on backwards, and then feel silly! I'm definitely going to check out these Enell products.
