About Blozzom....

1. Just the basic facts – share whatever you would like about yourself. Age, marital status, weight, height, occupation, etc.
I am going to be 32 in June, I am married with an 8 yr old daughter, a 5 yr old son, a 1.5 yr old Boxer and a 1 yr old bunny. I am currently 163 lbs, 5'0" and size 10P. I am a small business owner and dance teacher. I LOVE ballet and am still dancing on pointe! I'm dancing better than I did when I was 18 because I had knee issues then and have since fixed those knee issues!

2. When did you join PEERtrainer, and how did you find out about it? I joined PT 12/16/05 after finding out about it on Craig's list.

3. What changes and accomplishments have you made since you joined PEERtrainer? My original goal was to not look like a hippo while doing my ballet solo in a tutu 6/24/06 - I was aiming to go from size 18P to a size 10P by then!! Since digging my heels in 1/6/06 and chipping away at my weight - in 13 weeks I have lost: 19.8 lbs, 4 dress sizes (18P to 10P) and nearly 5% body fat.

4. What does a typical weekday/weekend day look like for you? I have all my meals prepared for me so I have little excuse to cheat - www.meals21.com. My day consists of ~1200-1500 calories a day, 1 gallon of water and 2 8 oz. glasses of skim milk w/whey added. I am following the Body For Life program which requires 40% protein, 40% carb and 20% fat

5. What is your favorite healthy breakfast, lunch dinner? Do you have a favorite recipe – if so share it here.
My favorite is SSHE's blueberry cheeze blintz for breakfast, texas bbq pizza for lunch and Aculpoco Taco pie for dinner. Unfortunately they are all secret recipes!

6. What are your Spotlight goals? My goal for this spotlight is to get down to a size 8P which involves me losing 2.5" off my waist and 2.5" off my hips in 6 weeks.

7. What are your long-term goals? My long-term goal is now to get my bodyfat% low enough to have a 6 pack and win one of the Body For Life Challenges!! (www.bodyforlife.com)

8. What advice would you give community members about reaching their goals, or the best way to use PEERtrainer? My advice... journal, journal, journal and read your peer's journals and comment!! It is not motivating to the rest of us if people don't read our journals and comment! Defeats the purpose of Peertrainer!! Also - take baby steps and set realistic goals!!! Don't tell yourself you want to lose 50 lbs. by July. Break it down into weekly goals!!! It's too overwhelming to think about losing those 50 lbs. - break it down into small steps to get there! Losing weight is a project and like any project it needs to be broken down into small tasks with deadlines!!! If you miss a deadline just re-group!

9. What are your favorite health books, DVD’s, tools, workouts etc? My favorite book is Body For Life by Bill Phillips. I love Peertrainer as a tool!! I also LOVE the tape measurer and love tracking my progress with an online catalog sizing guide like jcpenney's (http://www3.jcpenney.com/jcp/CustomerServiceMenu.asp?cus=sizing_guidelines&CmCatId=CustomerService). I think it is soooo important to stay focused on what your current size is and what it'll take to get down to the next smaller size!

10. Anything else you want to add? Favorite movies, books, etc? Feel free to add any extra information you want to! I'll think about this one and get back to you! Oh.... I do LOVE 7 Habits of Effective Families - there's some really good ideas for families with kids in there!!

One more thing!!!

I take weekly bikini pics to keep me motivated and moving forward!! I'm really seeing changes there!! Although, don't get discouraged if you don't see changes - sometimes there aren't changes until 6 or 8 or even 12 weeks in!!!! Celebrate any of the small changes you do see though!!!

I am a 29-year old female and my name is Star. I turn 30 on September 1st, and getting healty and in shape before then has become my preoccupation! I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two sons - one is 8, almost 9, and the other is a little over a year old. ! currently weigh around 182 - I started at 200 when I joined PEERtrainer. I am short, 5'3" - I blame my parents! :<) My father is only 5'8", my mother around 5'4".

I joined PEERtrainer on February 22, and started following the Body-for-Life-for-Women on March 1st. I learned about PEERtrainer through a google search. I had been exercising a little more and watching what I ate, sort of - but wasn't really holding myself accountable. And I wasn't motivated to really GO for it, even with the big 3-0 around the corner. I don't remember the magic search words that brought me to PEERtrainer - but I haven't looked back. I love this site and it has been just what I needed. The people in my groups are AMAZING and the community is an awesome place to share my fears, recipes, and accomplishments.

Since joining PEERtrainer I have lost almost 20 pounds! A pair of jeans (16 slim) that I could not even button up on March 1st now fit me comfortably. My measurements are going down and my muscles have becomed more toned. I feel happier! Exercising has really boosted my mood, as well as being a part of this online community.

A typical day for me includes taking care of my 1-year-old, sometimes a 4-year-old and then my 8-year-old when he gets home from school. I love to write but don't get in as much time writing as I should. I clean the house (sometimes), exercise, go online, go to the park, visit the mall, see movies, walk to the grocery store and blockbuster, mundane tasks, but they make up my life! I love to cook and usually make a homemade dinner most days of the week from scratch. Weekends include sleeping in, days at the beach, or out riding my bike with my son on mountain bike trails. Sunday mornings usually include a big breakfast.

For breakfast I really like steel-cut oatmeal with splenda and pecans. For lunch I usually defrost a portioned-controlled meal of something I have fixed for dinner previously. I love pasta - so I usually use the whole wheat pastas and keep my portion sizes small. I add extra veggies to a bottled sauce - spinach, zucchin, etc. I also relaly enjoy pork tenderloin served with brown rice and veggies. I have posted a few recipes before - the Garden Style Lasagna is really good.

My Spotlight goals are as follows:
Lose 15 pounds
Gradually increase weight/reps in strength training
Work up to getting up between 5 and 5:30 4 mornings of the week
Work up to writing at least 1 hour a day

My longterm goals are as follows:
To lose 60 pounds in 6 months.

May 24th - end of first 12 weeks - Need to be at 168
165 by June 16th
160 by July 1st
150 by August 1st
140 by September 1st - GOAL!

To learn how to love myself, to stop belittling myself.
To be a better mother, a better wife.
To work on getting a children's book published.
To become more organized.
Wear a backless dress.

I am learning that my get up early goal is failing! I just don't go to bed early enough to get up early. I have always been a night-owl and I guess it is just my nature. But I will keep trying!!! :<) The times I do manage to get up before everyone else I really enjoy it.

My advice would be to really watch your portions. It is amazing to me what portions REALLY look like. I can't believe how much I used to eat. Stay away from Fast Food. Stay away from soda. It is so wasy to give these things up. I still have a coke every now and again - less than once a month - and occasional fast food - but it is rare. Some people eat fast food everyday. Try and stay away from processed foods. It is unreal to think you can make everything from scratch - but limit your intake - try and stay fresh whenever you can. And get MOVING!

Favorite Health Books: Body-for-Life; Body-for-Life-for-Women; Banish Your Belly, Butt and Thighs Forever; Lean, Long and Strong

Favorite DVD's: Cindy Crawford's Shape Your Body, an old Winsor Pilates VHS

Favorite Activities: Riding trails on my bike - swimming - walking. Working on interval jogging when I walk and hoping to be able to run one day! Want to start karate, pick up a tennis racket again, and try to windsurf again!

Ummm...I love my children and my husband and taking care of my family. But I have drained myself of energy by taking care of them and ignoring myself. Ever since I joined PEERtrainer I have been taking care of me. I am much happier, and my family is too!

I love horror books and horror movies. I usually wait to see romance and comedy movies on DVD and choose horror or action or kids movies for the big screen. Some of my favorite DVD's of late...The Weather Man, Elizabethtown. Some of my old-time favorites, Happy Gilmore, Nothing to Lose, The Shawshank Redemption, 28 Days Later, Resident Evil, Aliens, 8-Legged Freaks, Predator, The Shining... anyway I could go on and on. I love movies.

I guess that's it for me. Everyone have a great day!

About CoffeeGal

1. Just the basic facts – I'm 30 years old, single, living in Center City Philadelphia. I'm 5'7", 190 lbs, about a size 14/16 in Jeans, 12 in dresses (thank you bootie!). I have a construction engineering degree, 6 years in the army, and owning my own coffee shop behind me. I'm currently unemployed, and looking for my next job/adventure!

2. Peertrainer - I found it on Craigslist, and I joined back in September. I took it seriously at the beginning of the year, and this is my second spotlight (I like them, seems to be the only time I post regularly)

3. Changes and Accomplishments - I've dropped about 15lbs since joining Peertrainer, as well as switched to a Gluten-Free diet due to my allergies. I've gone down from a size 18 to 14/16 in jeans and 12 in dresses!

4. Typical Day? Ugh - there is no typical day. I've only been unemployed for a week, so I'm still adjusting. I spend lots of time freaking out, and putting off going to the gym (that's the habit I'm trying to break!)

5. Favorite meal? The easy one! I have gluten-free Pad Thai sauce from "Thai Kitchen" brand. I usually throw pre-cut squash and broccoli from the local terminal market in a covered pan on low heat while I cook rice pasta. When the pasta is done, I toss it in with the cooked veggies and some sauce...sauteè it for a few minutes and violà! A quickie healthy meal! I try to put my recipes down on paper (computer?) http://coffeegirlrecipes.wordpress.com

6. Spotlight Goals - Lose about 12 pounds. Adjust to my ever-changing life. Take my workouts outdoors for the season!

7. Long-term Goals - Get my personal trainer certification. Get down to about a good size 12. Look great!

8. Advice - Don't give up! I've been doing this "trying to be healthy" thing for years. Finally it clicked, and I'm actually on my way! Keep trying - you will get there!

9. What are your favorite health books, DVD’s, tools, workouts etc? Body for Life is a FABULOUS program if you have time to devote to it. I don't do it now, but I really recommend it.

10. Any questions for me? Email me! PhillyCoffeeGirl@gmail.com

about Adrienne...

1. Just the basic facts – I am 31, single, no kids, never been married, living in metro Detroit with 2 huge (but healthy) cats. I work in the telecom industry, something I never pictured myself doing, but really love. I'm 5'2", around 160lbs & wear a 10P, hoping to be an 8P very soon!

2. When did you join PEERtrainer - I joined in November '05, read about it in the NY Times.

3. What changes and accomplishments have you made - I've lost 15lbs since the first of the year. This has been a frustrating winter, I feel like I've been derailed several times by injury or illness. But, thanks to PT, I've gotten much better at learning how to stay committed & motivated. I've also become much more aware of the the food I eat, and how much I really work out.

4. What does a typical weekday/weekend day look like for you? My weekdays are fairly structured - something I love! I work 8-5 & catch a class at the gym after work. Weekends are another story... they are rarely planned and mostly about relaxing. I never seem to accomplish everything I want to do with my weekends, and I'm totally ok with that!

5. What is your favorite healthy breakfast, lunch dinner? - breakfast is either a high fiber cereal or eggs & veggie sausage in a low-carb tortilla. Lunch is usually a salad & a veggie burger. I try to eat them several hours apart, I find it helps keep my energy stable. Lately dinner has been frozen meals. I used to buy them for portion control. Now its mostly just laziness. I don't want to plan & cook... so much easier just to microwave something...

6. What are your Spotlight goals? - to finally see the 140s!!!!!

7. What are your long-term goals? - to maintain a healthy weight/lifestyle. I don't want to undo all of my hard work!

8. What advice would you give community members about reaching their goals, or the best way to use PEERtrainer? - Be patient with yourself. If you've spent a lifetime accumulating unhealthy habits, its unrealistic to to assume you can change everything overnight. Lapses will happen, try to learn from them. Dwell on your positives, not your negatives. Reach out to your PT group members for support. Many times my group members have had ideas or suggestions that were so wonderful & helpful - things I would never have thought of in a million years!!!

9. What are your favorite health books, DVD’s, tools, workouts etc? - My favorite magazine is Experience Life. It does a really good job of balancing fitness with healthy lifestyle. As far as tools, I love the stability ball & BOSU. BOSU totally rocks for planks & push-ups!!!

10. I am a sports junkie, & absolutely love hockey. Ironically, I stink at all organized sports (one of the downsides of growing up a girly-girl, I guess!) so I mostly cheer from the sidelines. Other than that, I'm just glad it's finally spring. I love the warm weather, and can't wait for the first game of frisbee in the park! I find I have so much more energy, and I'm not craving all of those heavy winter foods!

Please feel free to check out my log and post any comments. I am far from perfect & always open to suggestions!!!

1. I'm 39 years young, married, no kids (yet), and work at a university, I live in the Metro Detroit area. Currently, I'm 5'4", and fluctuating between 170 and 174 (depending on the day...) I'm in training to do my 2nd Breast Cancer 3-Day walk in August of 2006! ;-) My body tends to build muscle easily, so I need to ignore the scale!

2. I heard about PT on Craigslist and first logged on in December, 2005.

3. Since I joned PT, I've been much more accountable and careful about my food intake, as I try to log in everything (GOOD and BAD)...

4. My schedule varies from day to day! I try to work out at least 3-4 times a week--either on my treadmill, taking a dance class, walking with my 3-Day teammates....During Lent, My hubby & I said no TV unless we exercise, so that's been really great-- although I'm to the point if I don't exercise I don't feel as good about myself!

5. Breakfast: A banana, an Apple or Oatmeal (Instant or not, it doesn't matter to me.)
Lunch: that varies too much from day to day! Salads, sandwiches, fruit.
Dinner: I try to eat some good protein, rice, veggies and fruit.
I have lots of recipes, they're all over PT!

6. Spotlight Goals:
a) To continue Training for the Breast Cancer 3-Day. I am aiming for 3-4 days of walking a week, and a minimum of 20 miles a week. (for a total of 120 miles by end of Spotlight 2!
b) Lose 6 lbs over the next 6 weeks, OR at least 1 dress size! :-)
c) Lose at least 5 more inches overall in the next 6 weeks!

7. Long term, I hope to become more healthy overall, shed and keep off my extra weight and to continue to exercise and to watch what I eat.

8. What advice would you give community members about reaching their goals, or the best way to use PEERtrainer? Make sure to log on!!! Keep info in your log about your goals, using the tickers give me a visual goal to see. :-) Also, talk to others or read about their situations-- share as much as you are comfortable about your own situation. You'll find yourself becoming more likely to be truthful about what you need to do to get to your goals!

9. I like to use the treadmill, a good pair of running shoes, proper "wicking socks" (AVOID COTTON!!), good wicking clothing. I don't have any DVDs, books or programs to recommend. I look at information everywhere!

10. I'm a big chicken-- I hate scary movies!!! I love comedies and historical / medieval movies-- anything Arthurian usually captures my attention! I also like art films and movies about artists, as well as Chinese language films (quite interesting to see another culture's views on filmmaking!)

Favorite movies:
Gone with the Wind, Galaxy Quest, Duece Bigalow, Male Gigilo, Lord of the Rings, Harold & Kumar go to White Castle, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Monty Python movies.... Movies about art and artists (both performing and studio arts)

Favorite TV shows: 3rd Rock from the Sun, Northern Exposure, M*A*S*H, Antiques Road Show, Shows about Remodeling and decorating homes, Shows about Art & artists.

Favorite Music: The Romantics - hands down, I have every album they own and have even had the pleasure of "hanging out" with some of the band! :-) They have been my favorite artists since I was 14 (25 years!). I have had photo passes at their shows and have about 300-500 photos in my own collection. :-)

My awesome event for today was going to the mall and zipping up (all the way!) a size 10 dress... Granted, it was a bit tight, but I didn't bust any seams zipping it up!!

Well, it's taken me awhile but here is my info . . .


1. Just the basic facts – I'm 34, married with 2 boys (5 and 6) and am a stay at home mom right now. I love it! I was a physical therapist for 5 years before having kids. I'm currently 5'5" and 141. I just want to be healthier and look as good as possible.

2. When did you join PEERtrainer, and how did you find out about it? -- I joined 2/17 /06 and I read about it in a magazine (All You, I think) while I was at the hair salon.

3. What changes and accomplishments have you made since you joined PEERtrainer? I've lost about 14 pounds, have become a much healthier eater thanks to the logging accountabiilty, and have been exercising fairly regularly. The biggest change has been my abitlity to stop eating/binging on candy. I still have the urges though . . .

4. What does a typical weekday/weekend day look like for you? Weekday, running the kids to places and friend's houses, picking up the house/yard, and running errands. Weekends, going to our lake property/farm and doing various projects around there.

5. What is your favorite healthy breakfast, lunch dinner? I am consistently monotonous with breakfast and lunch but I like the food and it ensures some healthy fiber in my diet. Breakfast -- Kashi Go Lean cereal. Lunch -- turkey and spinach wrapped in Light Flat Out. Tasty and good for you.

6. What are your Spotlight goals? Lose just a few more pounds and continue healthy eating.

7. What are your long-term goals? My ultimate goal is to get my cholesterol in a healthy range. In early December it was 289. Ugh . . . And I'd like to stay in good physical condition.

8. What advice would you give community members about reaching their goals, or the best way to use PEERtrainer? First of all, be realistic about your goals and the time frame you're allowing yourself. It's no good to set yourself up for failure. Plus, find the people that have your same struggles/challenges or desires and see how they have overcome them or achieved them.

9. What are your favorite health books, DVD’s, tools, workouts etc? Don't really have any. A few years ago I read through the Sugar Addict's Total Recovery Program which made me realize how obsessed I was with sugar. I didn't necessarily follow the things in the book but it was eye-opening and made me face some issues.

I'm always happy to have input from others about ways to improve or just plain encouragement. I think we all have something to offer to others. It's just a matter of figuring out what is the most helpful!

About gracem

1. Just the basic facts Age: 35; Marital status: single, never married, no kids; Weight: 143; Height: 5’5”; Occupation: Corporate Communications – Finance Industry

2. I heard about PEERtrainer in Fitness Mag and joined in Jan06.

3. The main change is my challenging myself more, simply because that’s the type of conversation that people are having on this site. I constantly surprise myself with what my body can do, and when I’m dead dog tired after a cardio workout, just give me five minutes and I seem to be good to go again.

4. A typical weekday looks like: 5 – 5:30a: wake, work, with some midday downtown culinary, shopping or wondering adventures w/ a co-worker. 6p hit the gym, 8p: home for dinner and write or go out.

A typical weekend looks like: 7a: up and getting ready to hit the gym; Personal Trainer on Saturday and Yoga on Sunday. I typically schedule my days around those two things. Noon: hang out with the sister or friends; do some photography, shop, run errands, clean the house. Evening: depends and varies; hang out with friends, movies, dinner, Sunday night dinners at The Sis’s house, tv on Sunday, write on Sunday nights, and crash early on Sunday nights.

During the summer I hope to be climbing at least every other weekend like I did two summers ago, hiking, and camping. I want to do another road trip this summer.

5. Healthy breakfast? Well, that’s hard cuz I love pancakes. Although I’m completely inept at making it, a very good bakery near my house makes the best steel cut oatmeal that I have ever tasted! On my own, I usually have a whole wheat cereal.

Lunch? I love a good sandwich and a pickle. There’s another bakery near my house that makes the best tuna salad sandwich with red onions, currants, celery and just a touch of mayo (I’m not fond of mayo at all.).

Dinner? A healthy dinner would be something that tops off the day and it depends on the day. Grilled steak w/ a spicy mole sauce and yucca root w/ cilantro and good veggies.

My favorite recipes aren’t very healthy!

6. Spotlight goal: Reduce my body fat by another 5% points (currently 27%). Lose 6lbs. Increase flexibility and stability. Consistently run for 1/2 hour on the treadmill and increase my speed.

7. My long term goal is to get by body fat down to 20% (if that’s reasonable, I don’t know. I have to find out.). I want to weight between 125 – 130lb. I want my body to be lean, athletic and efficient. I intend to maintain that for the rest of my life so as to hopefully set an example to my nieces and nephew who are on their way to obesity and diabetes.

8. To reach any fitness goals, I think that you need to be committed and be non-negotiable with what it takes to achieve those goals. Find someone in your life to partner with in your journey so that they hold you accountable and you them. Always work for the long term, short term goals should always support and bring you closer that long term goal. Fitness goals should be about your health, rather than achieving a specific type of body. You’re bound by your genetics, make that work for you and be realistic about it. Find your limits, explore who you are physically, and push past them! Lastly but most importantly, love is a function of acceptance – love who you are now in this moment because you are perfect.

The best way to use PEERtrainer would to be an active poster and share about yourself – authentically. You may not be able to keep up with all the conversation in your groups, but still post and read your groups’ posts. Share the good, the bad and the ugly – you never know who it might make a difference for. Ask for support from your community. Be willing to try on the advice to see if it fits. Being who you are makes you shine and will in turn make the PEERtrainer community shine.


9. My favorite workouts tend to be both cardio and weight lifting and yoga. Each taps into and feeds a different part of my spirit and refuels that part of me. I workout so that I can be available emotionally and mentally for myself and others in my life. I believe that when you are physically healthy and not concerned with that part of you, then it frees you up in other parts of your life.

10. I have lots of favorite other things, which are too many to mention. ?
