It is time to find a happier me. It is time to make myself a priority. It is time to learn to eat healthy food, to find exercises I enjoy doing and to mark my successes based on my best effort not someone else’s ideals. It is time to find me again…will the real me please step forward and commit to a healthy lifestyle that includes lots of laughter, love and fun? Today is the day to make a difference in my own life.

My goal is to loose 40 pounds by March 8, 2014.

    Hi, thanks for the comment and the friend-ing!

    When is your August 5k? I read on your page that participating in a 5k was one of your goals. I did a sprint triathlon for the first time in June, and it was an amazing experience, especially considering I weighed almost 50 pounds MORE than I did when I originally thought of doing one back in college, nearly 10 years ago. I found the Luna Chix, and they are awesome for training assistance, if there's a group in your city.

    Good luck!
