I am on a long journey to find myself, get healthy and strong, and to bring happiness to my life. I keep starting strong, and making improvements, only to stop and regain. I have been on this site for far too long to not have reached my goal.
I am now 40, I'll be 41 in January. My one wish was to not be battling my weight before I turned 40. What happened, why am I still struggling? I'm a very positive a driven person, I'm focusing my energy on me. I'm reaching my goal this coming year.
1) Log all food eaten, if it passes my lips It gets logged.
2) walk 10 minutes a day, adding 5 min each week and working up to 60 min 5 times a week, but maintaining at least 10 minutes each day.
3) Do a 10 minute strength training workout each day
4) connect with/ post on/ or support 3 people a day on spark people or elsewhere.
5) Re-motivate everyday.

If you ever need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've just celebrated my SP eight month anniversary and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received with not only weight loss but life in general. ~ Michelle

Thanks for your positive comments about the cruise. I am weighing the pros and cons and as I consider the pros, I am getting just a little bit excited. Maybe that's a good sign.

Hey thx for swinging by my blog!
Don't happen to have last year's pace time, but then not really being into the running thing, that's not a biggie.
Although I'm not a runner it still feels good to be able to complete a 5K without stopping...! :-)
