Hey Linda,
Thanks forreplying to my question. I'm really new here-I just joined this past Tuesday. I'm excited about the food tracker-it is really helping me see what I am eating right and wrong.

Anyway-I congratulate you on your running...I have never been a runner-never really had the wind for it. (I am doing beginner exercises right now 3 days a week-and hope to increase my activity as I get in better shape and build more stamina.)

I have never been to NZ or Australia. I used to be a missionary in Mexico and there were alot of people there working as missionaries that were from NZ. (I have always wanted to visit there-well maybe someday.)

Anyway Keep up the good work-looks like you are working toward your goal!

Hello Linda,

Wow... as ever my Lord's timing is perfect. Just as I was thinking to hell with this diet business & got stuck into a bag of lollies, he leads you to making contact with me.

Thank you so much for listening & thank you the encouragement. I needed it. I have no idea why I suddenly felt so low about the diet but it happens. I guess it is the heat getting to me. Oh well back to the drawing board.

Your are a great lady & I luvs ya.

I just read your spark page and I am doing the same thing.

I am 43, a mother of three grown children and am also a runner. Since my Seattle marathon in 2002, I had taken some time off (at first it was due to sore knees from the race....and then just plain out-of-it). However, last year at this time I was 25 pounds over weight and have lost 10 of those. I still have 15 to go. My birthday is April 16th and my goal is to shed those las pounds by then!

I wish you the best on your goal! Keep in touch and let me know how you are doing. It's so nice to have partners in this endeavor.

What are some of your running goals for 2007?

Debbie in W. Washington
