Not seeing my eyes when I smiled anymore was one of the things I found really depressing. Progress!

My Goals:
Weight loss goal for 2015:
Keep losing weight!

Fitness goal:
I want to be able to go hiking for the day. At the moment my knees are still not happy with my weight and prevent me from going on much longer than 3/4-hour hikes. But little by little, I believe I'll get there!

My Program:
*WEIGHT LOSS
Eat small quantities (WLS in November 2014) 6 times a day.

*FITNESS
1 or 2 hikes/walks every weekend (3 to 7 hours in total, with a photo blog for the fun and to keep myself accountable) and walks or stationary bike twice a week depending on the weather.

Personal Information:
I am French and live just outside Paris. I am 6ft (no, French women aren't all 'petite'!).
I love to travel and I have a passion for jazz (Cool West Coast).

Other Information:
Thank you so much for the support I receive here from Sparkpeople and my Sparkfriends! It is helping me make my way towards a lighter life, body and mind...

Hi Claire -
wow! I've never seen Hemlock here but have heard of it plenty of times. Didn't realize just touching it was enough to kill a person, but I guess I don't keep up with all the historical stories of who was killed with hemlock and who wasn't. And yes, Queen Anne's Lace/Wild Carrot is very common wildflowers along the roads and fields. On my way home from Wisconsin, I had a chance to stop by one of the Tourism Center/Rest Areas in northwestern Missouri and they had done a beautiful job "decorating" a hill with various prairie wildflowers - I probably need to upload all those photos as a blog project pretty soon!! It was only a quarter mile "loop", very short hike, but enough to stretch legs a bit after a long day of walking. That was really the closest I had ever been to a Queen Anne's Lace flower and I was struck by the "fractal" patterns there in the flower. And from what I could see of your hemlock photo, very similar pattern but the individual flowerets (sp? or not even sure if that's the right term - been awhile since I took botany!!) were much more spread out.

The main poisonous plants here to watch out for are Poison Ivy, and in other areas of the country, Poison Oak and Poison Sumac. I'm not as sure I've really seen either of those last two in Kansas, but we battle poison ivy in our back yard every year - and I usually end up losing!
