Greetings Earthlings!

Somehow in the last year and a half, a lot of things have changed. My body has shrunk, my confidence has grown, my wardrobe shrunk and then grew exponentially with smaller clothes, my status as single vanished, and my love for writing down what I'm thinking reached a new level. So, Earthlings, you have the inaugural launch of The Shrinking Rocket Scientist blog!

This all started on MFP (, a website near and dear to my heart. Without it, I wouldn't be a shrinking rocket scientist. I'd be an unhappy oversized rocket scientist. But after using it daily for a year and 4 months (give or take), I don't know how I'd survive without it (and the amazing people on it!)

And to sum things up: I've lost 67 lbs as of this morning (finally plateau gone!). I've gone from a size 16 to a size 6 (with one magical pair of size 4 Tommy jeans). And I've gone from couch potato to 5K runner and lifter of 60 lb kettlebells (don't ever get in a bar fight with me :P)

I'm working on importing all my MFP blogs onto this one, but I'll continue to post my blogs here and on the MFP blog as well. I tend to talk about my weight loss progress, tips for others, and my occasional screw ups and successes. But I like the ability to talk about anything, so you never know what you might see from me. I promise I won't start ranting about Calculus or orbital mechanics equations, I had enough of that in college... haha.

Feel free to contact me at any time or leave comments with questions. I'm happy to answer!


  1. Aw, darn, I was hoping you'd explain vector calculus or thermodynamics or something! LOL!! Nah, I have my own geek (electrical engineering MS) for that!

    LOVE your title banner!! I've added your blog to my small collection of faves on my iPhone homepage so I can read it anytime, anywhere. Looking forward to it - and to sharing our continuing journeys on MFP.

    Keep up your fantastic, inspiring, motivating work!


  2. Stopping by from MFP to follow your blog! Great job so far with all your progress! You've done so great! Congratulations :)
