I am a transplanted Michigander (ugh, I hate that word!) living in the South. Prior to moving, I was hovering around 140ish and needing to lose about 15. Then I moved to the land of fried EVERYTHING! Seriously. I had visions of that Simpson's episode where Moe bought that industrial-sized fryer and deep-fried everything! Needless to say, I gained 30 pounds. Yipes!

I lived like that for a long while. Then I turned 40 and I was tired of not being able to breathe properly. I started getting serious about losing weight. Thus began my journey....

Since starting this journey in June 2010, I have lost 42 pounds. I no longer have breathing issues. My cholesterol is down. My blood pressure is normal. I feel good about myself again. I also learned that I like to run!

2-11-12 Update - Wow. It has been FORever since my last update. Ooops! Anyhow, I have lost 52 pounds to date. I would like to say that I have finished losing weight, but I don't think my body is done yet. Still a work in progress. I have completed 5 races so far. I totally LOVE it. Who knew I had such an athlete inside me. Training for my 1st half marathon. Not sure if I am doing it right, but I am trying.
