My Goals:
As of May 13, 2012 (Sunday), I had completed 227 days without CHOCOLATE!!!!!! (I owe myself $1,130! I give myself $5 per day for every day I abstain.)
And in the past 7-1/2 months, I've removed 70.5 pounds (never to be found again, please powers that be!!!!).

I don't ever want to go back to being fat and unhealthy again. I want to love myself enough to take the best care of myself that I possibly can.

Life's more fun when you can MOVE!

My Program:
I plan to exercise at least five times per week (walking and yoga).

And practicing my serve and tennis strokes prior to getting out there and playing.

Playing tennis will occur either early in the morning (6 or 7) or late at night (10 or 11), because I now live in Arkansas and it's FREAKING sizzling out here! Lord have mercy!

Other Information:
Extreme biblioholic (who does not want a cure), recovering chocolaholic (who's taking it one day at a time, and please, no more Dairy Queen Chocoholic Blizzard commercials, or I'll have to give up TV altogether!)
Lifelong learner, and aspiring librarian. (Did I mention I LOVE BOOKS?)
Great sense of humor, which has definitely helped with getting back on track, and healthier.

Hi Annie, Hope you got to watch that awesome final at Wimbledon. Roger looked like he used to! So wonderful, consistent, totally Roger. Haven't been on Spark much, just too busy lately. Will be out of town a lot the next month but looking forward to the Cincy tournament in August. We'll be there for the round of 16 to see Roger and all his friends!! Take care.

I hope summer has been treating you well. I've been off the wagon for a while, but I'm ready to get back on. Just thought I'd drop you a line to say Hi. emoticon

I'm still plugging along. Was supposed to play tennis this afternoon but it's too hot and humid out there. I ran 5.5 miles this morning at 7 and it was already 80 degrees and humid. Now it's 86 or so and awfully humid so I'm not playing. Too afraid of heat stroke. I passed out from it a few years ago and it wasn't pleasant. I'm in better shape now but don't want to chance it. I played yesterday and twice on WEdnesday. I ususally play at least 3x a week and run 3 days. Are you playing in this awful heat? We usually play at 7am indoors, it's only $3 for 2 hours. Drop in tennis. It's fun. Some good players. Usually all guys but me. Sometimes another gal will show up. They're used to me. I've learned to be more agressive, too. anyway, will be out of town from early tomorrow until next Sunday late so won't get to watch tennis. Usually you can find the TV schedule on It's one of my favorite sites. Have a sparked weekend!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
