*12/06/09 - I completed my second marathon and I cannot wait to do another one. I did it in 5:05:51 which is over 1hour and 35 mins shorter than my first. Im really excited!! I have also been doing Bikram Yoga twice a week which really seems to be helping with muscle definition and my overall mood. Im just trying to get the last few pounds off. I have been struggling a little but I have come this far so i cant give up now!!

*6/19/09 - I signed up to run my second marathon, woohoo!! It will be the California International Marathon 12/06/09 and training starts in August.

*6/20/09 - I joined Weight Watchers last week and lost 3lbs :-) I am hoping to hit my goal for life time (140) by the end of July and to hit my ultimate weightloss goal of 135 by the end of summer. I am tracking my activity and food though WW.

I canít remember the last time I weighed under 150lbs. I was always a chubby kid growing up topping out in the 180ís when I was only 12. I started Weight Watchers and lost about 30lbsÖever since then I averaged in the high 150ís-high 160ís until the end of college last year when I broke into the 170ís.

I ran the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll marathon on 6/1/08! As a participant in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society'sTeam in Training. I took me 6:42:43 but I did it! Probably one of the best experienecs to date!

*9/21/08 Completed the Philly Distance Run (1/2 marathon) 2:37:20 new PB!

*Thanksgiving '08 Completed Run for the Diamonds (9 miler)

"People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success." ~Norman Vincent Peale

"Niney-nine percent of failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses." George W. Carver

I AM DONE MAKING EXCUSES!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Donít Quit!

"When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
when he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst, that
You Must Not Quit."

- C. W. Longenecker


I am ready to be done. I CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!

Wow! Great job on your marathon! I am really impressed. And you look SO great! You are so close to your goal of 135. I wish I were as well but that will have to happen in 2010. Congrats!

emoticon Happy 2nd SPARKVERSARY! What a wonderful accomplishment you have made, since most of the people who joined when you did have long since quit and given up on themselves! I just love seeing how much you have done to reach your goals!

emoticon I know this THIRD year will be even better!! emoticon

Hey! So I have been looking into Weight Watchers. Do you think it is worth the money? And do you do the meetings or online?

The main reason I want to do it is because I really like the Points system. I think that would work well for me but I am just wondering if there is really that much difference between Weight Watchers (especially online) and Sparkpeople??

Thanks so much. Have a great day!
