I'm a former college athlete (soccer) but have a bum knee now and have been told I should taper back on my favorite calorie-scorching activity - running :( I ran Disney Marathon in January 2010 and qualified for Boston. Now I'm training for Boston, but trying to keep things as low-impact as possible. Follow my journey here:

REALITY CHECK TODAY - I am 5'7, 152 lbs, and 21.9% body fat. I have lost about 9 lbs in about 4 months. Not bad, but I think with SP I can reach my goals of cutting some body fat, getting more toned and getting a handle on my borderline binge eating (luckily I have no issues with purging - it just doesn't happen).

Measurements as of 11/29/10
- Weight 152 lbs
- Shoulder 42
- Waist 30.5
- Waist (BB flub) 34 3/8********* This is what I wish to work on!
- Hips 39 5/16
- Thigh 20 7/8
- Calf 14 ½
- Bicep 11 ½
- Forearm 10

I love cooking and baking and eating and spending time with my friends and family. I like to surround myself with people who also want to live a healthy, fulfilling, and positive life!

emoticon Hello Megan,
I am Mic I was hoppin past your wonderful page, and I see how hard you have been working. We would like you to come join us on the QUICK FIRE team.

It is first of all FUN, second it is NOT a boot camp type ... it is about adding a few extra things to your day to give you a BIG advantage in reaching your goals..... Everyone has a few minutes they can QUICK FIRE through the day. If you spend your day at a desk, take a few minutes every 2 hours to get up, get moving and get closer to a body you can be proud of. You will return to your desk refreshed, with more mental clarity and a renewed sense to continue working knowing you are closer to reaching your fitness goals. Giving your metabolism a QUICK FIRE boost several times through the day, adds up to more fat burning.

WARNING!! It is proven that QUICKFIRING can lead to a HOT BODY!
I dare you to come join us!
What do you have to lose?
So please come check out the team and the daily challenges... www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i
