I have struggled with weight all my adult life and feel that if I do not lose weight now it will become impossible. I want to look and feel better and I don't want to obsess about food for the rest of my life. I want to get fit and be able to run a 10k in under 60 min!
I am a biochemist by training and tend to take a scientific evidence-based approach to things. I have read a lot about weight loss, exercise, motivation etc but it's in the application that I fail. I can only keep ...

Thanks for the link and info you shared on my blog about L-carnitine. I've been on it for a month and so far no benefits. I may have to stop taking it just because of the cost. I will look at that article for sure.

I plumb forgot about my blog on Sept. 2011 about the pronouciation of my Caitlin. I was googling and came aross it. Funny how googling brings up SP blogs. I'm on the Irish team, which I see you're on. I was asking about my name again. I need to re read my blogs. Come by and chat with us on the Irish team, even if a couple of us are Americans. I do wish I had added the fada to my name when I had to do a name change. Love the sound of catch-leen.

So what is the weather like in Ireland today? it's been on the off/on again rainy side here in Florida.

Take care. emoticon

Thanks for visiting my blog. Apparently the old Irish gentleman at the party I mentioned was misinformed -- he's the one who translated it for us. I so envy you -- I'd give just ANYTHING to go to Ireland.
