My weight gain came gradually. It took a photo for me to see reality.

I love exercise and doing new things. The Y has been my main place for exercise. While in my 20s I laughed exercise classes at the Y because they weren't intense enough. Now in my 50s, I push myself to keep up!

I have 4 children from teen to adult. I am putting my health first now instead of my kids, hubby or career. In the long run, I will have more energy to give.

Recently, I've started Nordic Walking because I like the inefficiency. That is, it burns more calories than regular walking. It helps my posture, triceps, chest and back along with improving my cardiovascular system and lower body.

I joined the Ohio Challenge 2010 series in the Walking and Weight Loss division. I will be walking (at least) five 5Ks this season.

Thanks!! Honestly, I don't think she had/has a clue that she said something inappropriate. But it doesnt matter what she thinks, right? Actions speak louder than words ;) Besides, I have never to this day heard someone tell me that they gained weight from doing too much cardio!! :P

I hope all is well. My life is crazy, so I don't get on Spark as much as I used to. Trying to find the balance in all things.

Best wishes!

Thank you for spending the time to read my blog - I think having just put that blog together - the first time I have actually put the developing story together like that and now the penny has dropped - and I am beginning to realise what I have done!! So - I'm just a bit slow in the uptake!! LOL!!
However it has proved one thing to me Ė that if I can do it anyone can do it and you will find that the results are way beyond your wildest dreams!!
