Thanks! I've been "starting out" since 2008! :) I'm looking forward to this renewed leg of the journey, though. I've been hanging out at near 200 lbs since my first child was born in 2003. Got pregnant at 175, which was the heaviest I had ever been at that point. Now I'm just feeling so tired and out of shape. Played six inning of softball on Monday and could barely walk til today! (lol) It was fun, but shouldn't have been that much effort. Feeling super-energized and in control today. Was really inspired to read about your journey. (Sorry for the rambling, can't resist.) See you around Sparkworld!
Thanks for the friend add! I did likewise. I know when you are starting out, the goal seems so far away. Hang in there though. The journey is a time of self discovery and personal growth, even as your body shrinks!
