I just wanted to get back into my old clothes!

I quit smoking in 2004 and the weight started going on slowly. Add that to the natural decrease in metabolism as we age and it's a recipe for disaster! LOL! Got increasingly difficult to get it off even when watching calories and going to the gym 5 times a week. I was getting no where.

So I signed up on April 23, 2009 and 3 months later I had dropped 25 pounds, gotten my resting heart rate down to 52 bpm, fit into clothes I hadn't worn in years and I have turned into a foodie who ...

So I signed up on April 23, 2009 and 3 months later I had dropped 25 pounds, gotten my resting heart rate down to 52 bpm, fit into clothes I hadn't worn in years and I have turned into a foodie who is obsessed with finding new tasty and healthy recipes. My husband certainly isn't complaining about all the cooking I've been doing - although he did make a bit of a fuss at first. Not a man who likes change. But so far he has loved everything I've cooked.

Alas - there was that usual slip around the year end holidays when I got too lazy to work out and spent more time baking (and of course eating) cookies and drinking eggnog.

But I'm back on track. Working out 3 - 4 days a week and working back to 5 -6. Just in time to get ready for the bathing suit season (yikes!)

Hi Celle. Thought I'd pop over and say hello. I see you are doing very well, at least with your exercise as it shows up in my feed. I'm moving along in a positive direction, so I'll be thankful too. Happy new year.

– Hello there. I saw your 1000 fitness minutes. Wow, good for you!
– Michael finally fixed my treadmill. I'm using it more now. I'd like to be more active and am working on it little by little. On the positive side, I'm really using the Sparkpeople android app to track my food. I like it a lot.
– Hugs to you, Robin
