High Energy ... That's me!

Been away for awhile. I had foot surgery in Nov (2013) and because of my Diabetes my recovery was less than speedy. Just starting back working out (Feb 2014). Need to get back on track and lose the 15 pds that I seem to have grown.

I first joined SP in Sept 2009. You will find my original introduction below. I had lost a total of 30 lbs but I did not successfully change my lifestyle. I gained 20 lbs back. I have succeeded in losing 15 of those 20 and am back on track. Unfortunately, it took an illness and the discovery that I had Type 2 diabetes that propelled me into action.

Orig intro :

Striving for a better Quality of Life.

When I was much younger I was a fairly good athlete. Gymnastics was my life, then soccer then racquetball and aerobics. I could eat whenever and whatever and only had to starve myself for a week and be back to my ideal weight (just the beginning of bad habits).

Getting older and not adapting my lifestyle led me to an obese corner that I didn't often leave.

Now I am ready to come out fighting. I am going to Peru over Xmas and need to be able to walk the Inca Trail!

.... I DID IT! I DID!!!! I hiked the Inca Trail!!!!!

Here is the story of my journey ....

It is a bit long, so I put it in a blog.

I could make some corn(beef)y jokes about Saint Patrick's Day, but...

You worked hard and lost weight this week, Firecracker, which is worth celebrating every day!

Here's to celebrating with boiled cabbage, carrots, and potatoes with a smidgeon of corned beef on the side and skipping the green beer.

You lost weight and an hour this week. What's next? Losing more weight and your keys?

With best wishes that only one of those things comes true,
Marjimac
