I hope to encourage and be encouraged along this journey to better health. Hope to gain some friends as I lose the weight! I walk as my primary exercise.

So what was the big moment that got me here? Some significant health issues. I actually thought I was relatively healthy. I thought I ate relatively well. I was in denial.

I want to do more than just be here for more years; I want those years to be incredible, awesome, years with my dear husband and son and old ...

So what was the big moment that got me here? Some significant health issues. I actually thought I was relatively healthy. I thought I ate relatively well. I was in denial.

I want to do more than just be here for more years; I want those years to be incredible, awesome, years with my dear husband and son and old and new friends! I want us to go on more hikes, longer hikes, fun outdoor adventures. And I want to do more than just struggle to keep up. Who knows, I might lead the pack someday!

So, I am here. I am learning. And I am so very grateful for this community. Now I have to do my part. And I need to get the courage up to take a full length "before photo" at my evaluation at the gym! Got to start from somewhere, right?

My Goals:
I would like to lose to my goal weight by end of December 2011. I want to tone up and become more fit for my own wellbeing Additionally, my son wants to go on a wild cave tour and wants me to go along. I have a few places on my body that are just over the size limit for the cave and I know it is completely doable to change that!

Thank you for your encouraging comments on my Activity Feed and being there for me when I couldn't be there for myself (if that makes any kind of sense at all).
