This summer I joined Weight Watchers and lost 15 pounds, but now I am going to trust my self and skills on Sparkpeople as I have another 30 pounds to go. I love walking and I live in the most amazing place to do it, and I have fallen in love with practicing the Nia Technique.
I am excited about creating healthy changes in my life.

Thanks for the Orange! :) I hope you're enjoying the beautiful weather we've been having too! Well it's sunny in Vancouver, so i'm assuming it's sunny in Victoria too!
