Hi I'm Sarah/Nyxkyria and I'm based in NYC. I've been familiar with Nerd Fitness since about 2008/9 when it started, but never really got into the boards or anything. Medical issues, drinking too much, and general laziness have led to me putting on way more weight than I'd like. I hate the way I look in the mirror and none of my clothes fit. I have struggled with ED behaviours in the past, so any sort of exercising and "restricting" makes me nervous that I won't be able to do it without getting into a bad head space. As far as nerd interests: Game of Thrones/ASOIAF -- Sansan 5ever! HP since 1997 (I'm having a crappy day and just watched Potter Puppet Pals and I feel a bit better), and Buffy helped me realize that I wasn't a weirdo! (Thanks Willow!) I play more WoW and Civ5 than one person should. I tend to role Mages - usually Undead, but I play around. My main quest for this six weeks, is going to be to get sober(ish). I know that me attempting to go completely cold turkey will end in failure, so I'm looking to manage my drinking. I also hope to lose a few pounds in the process, but if not, no biggie. My 3 SMART quests are: not to go to the bar next to my house (I don't have an off button there), decrease drinking one night a week until I am not drinking at all, and decrease the amount by 15%-20% each week. So instead of drinking every night, then I'll only drink 6 nights a week and when I do, it won't be the whole container/bottle, only 3/4 until I'm not drinking anymore. As this is one of the cruxes* of my issues, tackling this first can only lead to better things. On to DeathKnell! *Miriam/Webster says that cruxes/cruces are both correct forms.
