Kailua Beach - I can walk here from our house
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I'm a happily married 30-year-old woman, living in beautiful Hawaii with my wonderful husband, our son Benjamin, and our dog. I used SP to lose 15 pounds over five months in 2007, and it was great. Our son Benjamin was born in 2009, so of course I put weight on over the course of the pregnancy. I've successfully lost all of the baby weight, but would still like to lose another 10 lbs. Now that I am no longer nursing, my metabolism has slowed down, and caring for a 1-year-old makes it difficult to get to the gym. I try to squeeze in exercise where ever I can - walking the dog, hiking while wearing Ben, doing exercise DVDs early in the morning before he wakes up. However, I know that what I really need to focus on is tracking my food and staying in my caloric range. That is what helped me achieve success last time, and I know it will work again.
We live on the island of O'ahu but are going to Maui for Thanksgiving with our best friends, and I would like to be at my goal weight of 125 lbs by that point. I know I can do it, I just have to stay focused! So here we go - wish me luck - and I hope to share the journey with you!

Completely different, yet both utterly amazing.

Hello! How are things going for you? Are you settled in Hawaii yet? Haven't seen or heard anything from you for a while and just thought I'd drop you a line!

How long are you going to be staying with Dave and Lisa? Ro thinks I am ignoring him and just coming home and getting on the computer but I'm really putting my foods in before I forget what I've eaten. I have a mini journal in my purse so I can jot things down too. Keep your fingers crossed for me that I lost .5lbs for tomorrow...If so, 6lbs since I joined again on the 22nd (right after you left!!)

I just happened to see that you didnt get to bring your baby girl Maddie with you yet. I did want to tell you though, I have be a travel agent for 22 years and whichever airline you booked with is doing the responsibile thing, HOWEVER, it sounds like they dont have an area that is climate controlled for the pets they transport. I would be a little leery of an airline that doesnt have the pet area climate controlled. You can check with some of the other airlines because many of the areas are climate controlled in the pet areas now, and because of that they can take them anytime of year. You could check with Continental Airlines. They are one of the best as far as transporting pets. They are wonderful and take excellent fare of them. I take my dog back and forth with me to Holland and he actually seems to enjoy it now. Marta
