I keep a "dashboard" of indicators to monitor my health now. How do I FEEl? What are my measurements? What are some small ways I can improve each month? I still have some weight to lose, but now I'm training for the long haul. I'm learning how to make this weight loss stick!

Wow--over 100 lbs! I can't wait to add that to my banner some day. :-)
I am always looking for success stories to help me stay motivated on my own journey, and yours is certainly inspirational. Thank you, and congratulations!!!

Thanks for the blog comments. Time changes is the WORST! I never used to have this much of a problem with the fall change, but the Spring one really messes me up!

Thank you so much for the blog comments! Yes, Insanity is crazy tough, but also a great workout, and I totally love it. And hate it. It is the epitome of a love/hate relationship!
