I've always hated being overweight and having to look at all that extra weight when I look in the mirror, but I was never really motivated enough to actually do anything about it. I lost about 30 lbs using SP a few years ago, fell off the wagon when I ...

I've always hated being overweight and having to look at all that extra weight when I look in the mirror, but I was never really motivated enough to actually do anything about it. I lost about 30 lbs using SP a few years ago, fell off the wagon when I went on vacation and never managed to get back into the swing of working out & eating right on a regular basis. Add a new baby and buying a home into the mix, and the result was me gaining back about 20 pounds. Now, however, I have fresh motivation and am in this for the long haul.

I hadn't checked my email in forever, so I didn't realize you had commented on my blog. THANK YOU!!!

I start week 5 tomorrow! It looks like you're doing well with C25K, too! Keep up the great work!

I'm right there with you - I've been prepared for famine from childhood! And I don't want to look like a Boticelli, either!!! My very thin mother used to use that reference as a way to make me feel better about myself! Can you imagine?!

Good luck with your goals! See you at the 5K finish line!!!!!
