Original intro:
I recently moved to the gorgeous Pacific Northwest, outdoors capital of the world. I want to be fit and active and outdoorsy. I bike most days, sometimes even in the rain, and joined a Dragonboat team. My goals are to lose belly fat and increase strength and endurance, so I can be a full-time bicycle commuter and an asset to my team, as well as look great in clothes!

Update 10/2007
I have lost 20 lbs and don't know how much farther I can expect to go. I still have some belly fat to lose, but I've finally started strength training and expect some real muscle gain. But whether or not I lose another pound, I'm going for a slim belly and size 10 clothes!

I no longer expect to commute by bicycle every day. The roads are not safe enough in the dark & bad weather to go the whole way. But I can still get in at least 6mi/day safely, plus a little on weekends. I'm also adding lunchtime walking to these pretty fall and winter days.

Update 1/4/08
My new goal is to lose 10-15 more pounds by my next birthday, June 10, and maintain or increase my fitness level. I'm hoping to finally add running to my repertoire; we'll see how that goes. I'm also going back to school, and even though I've done it before, it feels completely new and unfamiliar!

Update 4/7/08
Well it's been a year. I have 5-10lbs to go. I have not taken up running. I am in school; I have taken over as Treasurer for my dragonboat team; I am continuing to paddle and bike and I've been walking more as the weather's been nice.
My boyfriend has committed himself to losing 20lbs by June. He hasn't joined Spark, but he has started supporting me at home by requesting smaller servings, welcoming vegetables, and not bringing home junk food. I haven't gotten him out on the bike yet, but the weather's been wet and the weekends busy; I don't think it will be long. It's so nice to have partnership in this journey!

Hi Elwyne!

Thanks for popping by my blog! Congratulations on your terrific weight loss.

I really like your idea of rewarding yourself with books - I might implement that as one of my treats. :)

Hi Elwyne,
I don't dance anywhere in public!!! at least not recently!

I have never taken classes here in the Portland area either. I had already been dancing for three years by the time Imoved here, so never felt the need. There are classes at community centers, at least I think there still are, because my daughter took one when she was in high school.
The original ones I took were at a community center in California, but the teacher was a professional bellydancer. Then I teamed up with another gal who already danced profesionally and we did charity function and danced in pubs and taverns for ourselves. Ah, former good times!

I have the belly now tho, when I did dance in public before, I was downright skinny!

Bonnie
