I'm still trying to lose all the weight I gained since I graduated from college in 2002 (at age 36). At my heaviest, I was about 210 pounds. I've lost about 30 of that, and I'm working to lose 20 more.

My Goals:
In April 2013 I made a big commitment: I will celebrate my 50th birthday in September 2015 by completing an Olympic-distance triathlon. My blog is mostly about training & maintaining motivation.

My Program:
I'm tracking what I eat and the exercise I get. Structured diets, even Weight Watchers, run counter to my personality. I weigh myself daily, so I know when I'm getting off track.

Personal Information:
Born & raised in Seattle. Joined the US Coast Guard at 18. Bounced around a lot for the next twelve years, including a few more years in Seattle. Moved backed to Washington in 1996 to a rural area of Western Washington (the wet part). Moved to Eastern Washington in 2000, and I fell in love with this side of the Cascade Mountains. We currently live in the Tri-Cities. It's a brush steppe, but the climate is very similar to a high desert: cold in the winter, hot in the summer, lots of sun, not much rain, lots of wind, very little humidity.

Other Information:
I have very little self-control when it comes to food. I can always justify eating that extra snack - and then I regret it!

Although I love to sleep and I could spend 9-10 hours in bed everyday, I'm naturally kind of fidgity. I like to keep myself in motion. I find it difficult to sit for more than an hour. Since I work at a desk job, I'm always up & walking around.

Thanks for your note on my blog. I remember he also said something to me about being able to plow a field, but I think I had tuned him out at that point. I did find a naturopathic practice in West Seattle where all 3 of the docs graduated from Bastyr. Two of them specialize in thyroid disorders, but of course my insurance doesn't cover naturopathic care. Will have to save a little before I can go. In the meantime I just need to be really diligent about logging my food and measuring my portions. Have a great day and hope your foot starts feeling better!

Hey I liked some of your comments on the triathlon group page and wanted to say hello. Then I read your profile about your commitment to doing an Olympic distance tri for your 50th. That is awesome! I added you as a friend because you inspire me!

Thinking of you today, and hoping all is going (or, by now, went) well!
