MY HISTORY:
Back in 2007 I lost about 25 pounds on Spark, and I kept it off until I got pregnant, had my adorable son, and just sat around on the coach eating and playing with him. Now I play with losing 15 pounds here and there and then gaining it back. I really want to KEEP IT OFF PERMANENTLY now.

June 6, 2007:
Waist = 34.5 / Hip = 41

Jan. 7 , 2009:
Waist = 28.5 / Hip = 38

Thanks for commenting on my blog!! I forgot that I could respond on your Spark Page...

I would love to walk together! I'm sorry I missed this earlier.

I walked an entire 30 minutes. Did you get out for a walk?

I'm very thankful that it is not physically difficult for me to walk. It is tricky to carve out time for it, though.

I usually walk during the morning, but Tuesdays and Wednesdays are jam packed. Today I slipped in the walk between music lessons in the late afternoon. Tomorrow I'll be driving my son to an orthodontist appointment in the am, and teaching most of the rest of the day. It's going to be challenging! Maybe I'll do some parking lot walking at the school.
