Update March 2012

2011 was an up & down year and I didn't meet my original goal to lose 50 lbs. I did lose half that & I feel good about it. I have learned so much about feeding my body properly. You feed your body properly with so more than just food. I am committed to loving myself no matter what size/weight I may be.

Update March 2012

2011 was an up & down year and I didn't meet my original goal to lose 50 lbs. I did lose half that & I feel good about it. I have learned so much about feeding my body properly. You feed your body properly with so more than just food. I am committed to loving myself no matter what size/weight I may be. It's not easy but I am worth it. 2012 has started off great and I'm finding my groove with running and strength training. I look forward to summer so that I can get outside and enjoy the great outdoors. I am going to face my fear of running in public and run at least one 5k this summer. I'm also seriously considering doing a Warrior Dash with my cousins at our annual family reunion. There is no stopping me!

That's me in my kayak 2 summers ago. I didn't use it last summer, but, I have many hours logged in it so far this summer! I am getting some nice guns!

I've lost & regained the same 30 or so pounds too many times to count. My tendency is to eat too much and eat for comfort and it shows in my weight. I am sick of wearing this fat suit so that's why I'm here. SP is such a great tool for tracking calories and the amount of exercise I get.

Now that I'm in my 40's, I've found it is so much more difficult to lose weight. I have made the decision to make this lifestyle change so that I can be healthier & live longer.
