Playing Well is the Best Revenge

I'm getting narrower ... and faster ... if I break the light-speed barrier, I'll tell you yesterday.

Wag more, bark less. You can do anything. Except live without oxygen. And gravity is nice, too. But aside from that -- anything's possible!

-- Including losing 100 lbs. in 9 months and 8 days. If I can do it, YOU can do it.
-- Including hitting 100,000 fitness minutes (no lie!) on March 22, 2011.

intelligence is bred in
their bones: chew on it

January 19, 2008 -- started taking alli

October 28, 2008 -- thank you thank you THANK YOU Doneys for naming me Done Gal O' The Day and somewhere in there I was named a Motivator as well. I can hardly believe it. Today's song is for you.

February 17, 2009 -- thank you thank you THANK YOU Kind Buds for naming me Kind Buddy O' The Week. Yesterday's song, if I may, is for you. Party on! :)

March 25, 2009 -- thank you thank you THANK YOU for naming me the Spark Motivator of the Day! How the heck did THAT happen? Seriously, I am humbled and grateful and newly motivated and trying to think of how I'm going to thank everyone individually. This may involve dog slobber. Or, if you prefer, coupons for free smart aleck comments. ;)

April 21, 2009 -- I was interviewed (3 times!) on GMTV about my experiences with weight loss and alli. Here's a link to the first interview: http://www.gm.tv/index.cfm?articleid=34368
Pics are in my photo gallery.

May 4, 2009 -- 199.2. First time under 200 lbs. since 1991.

Goals
1) Get a new job. A good one, that interests me.
2) Lose the last lbs .
3) Get down to my High School measurements (36-29-39).
4) Continue to treat myself better and better. Learn new recipes. Improve and change up strength training and cardio. Get good rest. Drink the water.
5) Continue to polish and promote my writing. Publishing contract signed with Riverdale Avenue Books in February, 2014.
6) There is no #6.

PS I am starting some things over. Not fun to re-lose and get back to under 200 but that's life in the big city and I am on my way. Come along and help drive. :)

PPS Yeah, I've got a website, and I was published in 2014. :) http://www.janetgershen-siegel.com

My Program:
Diet, exercise (resistance bands, Joyce Vedral's 20-minute daily workout book, a big honkin' yellow stability ball, the gym and walking, a touch of Pilates) and I used to take alli. Oh and my own will, your love, you wonderful Sparkies, plus the ability to lie to myself about why chocolate is evil.

If Boston is the Hub of the Universe, I live in the Gateway to the Galaxy.
I am bigger than a breadbox. I am ... The Data Empress AKA The Access Whisperer. Hire me! Pretty please?!

I am also rapidly becoming a cute person, if I do say so m'self.
