    This is really cool!! My name is Alena. (:

    Age: 22

    Occupation: Just a student now. Until recently I was a customer service rep for Verizon.

    College (alum/current student): Currently at Pima Community College (Game Design/Programming)

    Location: Tucson, AZ

    Fitness Goals: Drop 50 pounds or so. Lost roughly 5 so far.

    Exercising: Do you do it, and what do you do? I lift weights at home, trying to gain back muscle I've lost. I'll make myself run if I can get passed the desert heat!!

    Consistency (are you here for today, or will you be here long term? And do you get on every day or once a week? etc): I'm pretty good about popping in daily.

    Favorite Movie/Book/Whatever: I watch a lot of movies and shows. And also read...often. My favorite authors however are Kim Harrison, Jennifer Armentrout, and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

    Anything else pertinent: Oh boy. I love video games, I'm also great at puzzles and logic. So programming and making games are right up my alley. I also love anime and cosplaying, reading, and dancing. I discovered no matter how cleanly I eat, weight doesn't come off unless I cut back on carbs. So I try to stick to thay and don't bother with calorie counting. (I just eat smaller portions when I'm hungry). Not sure what else to ramble about. Feel free to add me though!! The community is a huge motivator. (:
