Yes, I'm really enjoying running. I find I can really get into a zone where each step takes me away from stress and I feel both physicall and mentally stronger. I do hope my knee holds out, but I took your advice and have been taking it easy by running slower. That seems to have helped, so hopefully it's just an issue of getting stronger and used to running again.

Hope your cold is getting better. Take care & get well soon!

Thanks for your comment on my blog. What a great idea -- making some very specific goals, but ones that are not weight or appearance related. I will have to sit down and think of some good, realistic fitness goals. I know one that really worked for me before was number of fitness minutes per month. That's a good one for me because I can start with walking to/from work and then move up to other types of exercise without feeling too pressured to finish a specific program. Thanks for the idea, and as always, for your support.

Hey, there! I saw you on the BF Mom's 10 in 10 Challenge. I looked at your ticker and we are the same weight this week. Ha ha, how's that for coincidence. Hope you and yours are doing well.

Just thought I'd drop by and say hi! It looks like you're doing great with your weight loss. How are the kids? Hope things are well with you.

I've been off SP for awhile since I started working full-time which coincided with our house move. All in all, I'm doing well. I've probably gained about 2 pounds since the move, but it could have been worse!

Take care, chat soon.

Thanks for reading my blog today...I really think its a mental thing for me. I've been so focused for the last few weeks, and making the right decisions was somewhat easy because I had my eye on the prize (a healthy me!). But this last week was HARD. I felt like all I wanted to do was stuff my face. I still stopped myself (most of the time), but I'm afraid it made me a little bitter lol. I'm really hoping I can get back to that lovely time when it was EASY to say "no" to the hot fudge sundae....

Thanks for the encouragement, I truly needed it!
