A hike in the northern Adirondacks, in a gorge below Lake Placid--late June 2016.

First flight lesson - such a thrill!

7/16/16: Hi! After losing 45 lbs over two years, much of the weight has crept back. But I'm not going to berate myself--what's done is done, and heck, we all know maintaining weight-loss is an uphill battle. What's important is what I do about it today and tomorrow and in the months to come.

In two years, I'll turn 50--hard to believe. I want to greet that auspicious day being the healthiest, strongest, most energetic "me" I can be!

8/15/16 update: I lost 10 lbs in the first month! Am tracking what I eat (even if I overdid it) and being mindful of both food and activity levels. I have regained strength and flexibility through yoga and walking, and feel so much better!

It's a relief to be 25% of the way to my goal. A long way to go, but it sure is better than a month ago, standing at the foot of the mountain and taking that first, small step.

My Goals:
Aim to lose an average of 1.5 lbs per week. Improve cardio fitness, strength, flexibility and balance. Start running intervals again, work up to running 1.5 miles by mid-October.

My Program:
Walk the dog. Do yoga in the park on Saturday mornings. Go hiking and canoeing. Strength train at the gym, focusing on improving my weak left hip and leg. Try some of those short SP workout videos! Start running again--intervals, working up to 2 full miles. Track what I eat and drink. Have fun, seek inspiration and encouragement, and keep my eyes on the prize!

Personal Information:
The good thing about being under-employed right now is that I have a lot of extra time on my hands to work out!

Other Information:
Reach out! Let's encourage each other and find ways to work through the challenges.

    Hi! Just wanted to stop by and say that you "saved me" a bit. I am a size 14 but still at 190 lbs and looking to drop enough weight to be within a healthy BMI range. You had posted a past experience which I am currently going through which is that someone was saying that you looked great and no longer needed to lose any weight. You hit the nail on the head when you said this can be very "demotivating". I have asked myself, "is it normal for me to feel this way?". I was heavier before so I guess people see me and think this is the finish line. Boy are they wrong!! Thanks for your post on the "how to deal with negative comments " thread.
