Finally Fit!

After spending the majority of my first fifty years as an overweight couch potato, I decided to turn 50 at a healthy weight and get physically fit. That was nine years ago and after losing 78 lbs., I am a slender, healthy, grandmother who loves to run and bike. I still struggle with food issues and wish I could say that it is easy to keep
the weight off but it takes daily effort. I'm here to further that effort and gain motivation from other people who can appreciate the struggle...

Thanks for the book. You know I've already pre-ordered the next JD Robb novel, coming out in November, right?

Sadly, I honestly didn't know you were MIA this week, as I've been MIA with the exception of tae kwon do. Nick had meet the teacher night on Monday, Logan had preschool open house last night. Hopefully things are back on track for both of us.

Feel better soon!!!

I'm trying to track every bite. I need to remember that just because I don't track it, doesn't mean I didn't eat it.
