UPDATE: January 11, 2011
It's not about the weight; it's about how I feel. Can I climb steps w/o feeling exhausted when I reach the top? Can I wrestle with the kiddies w/o being out of breath? Do I look fabulous in my size 8 dress (I am a bit curvy you know:~). Can I eat sensible meals and feel satisfied? The answer is a resounding YES! I love how I currently feel. Yeah – I have some more athletic aspirations but for my daily life, I feel great and will continue to live and breathe a healthy lifestyle.

UPDATE: January 23, 2010
After 1 year I lost 35 lbs - Yay; kept it off for 6 months and wore a sexy swimsuite - Awesome; Gained about 10 lbs. back - Not so good; and recommitted myself to this healthy living plan by making tangible goals - Perserverance! I'm still on my quest ya'll.

January 2009
In my quest to be my absolute personal best, it is only fair that I strive to be my best physically. Just as with anything else, I need the resources to keep me encouraged, engaged and motivated – I’ve found that here in SparkPeople. Much love to the SparkPeople community.
