I am from the Chicagoland area and I travel at least 5 days a week with my job. Eating on the road is hard! I gained 30 lbs in my first 3 months on the job (Aug 06). The time to make a change is now!

Fitness Minutes: 16,098

My Goals:
Be healthier & not make this a temporary fix to a life long problem. I want to get down to 150 & then maintain that weight. I don't want to be embarrassed about my weight any longer.

My Program:
We have a Bow-Flex and a stationery bike at home. I'm trying to remember that the Bow-Flex isn't just a giant hanger! When I travel, the hotels usually have a treadmill and a bike. I try to change it up and use the treadmill as much as possible when I'm on my business trips.

Personal Information:
I am from the Chicagoland area and have 4 cats (my favorite is Orion - which is how I got my screen name), 14 fish tanks, and a pond!

Thank you for the virtual flowers. The house is so quiet without a talking Siamese, and I haven't used the computer alone, without Bart draped over my forearms in 6 years. Thomas wants to go to the shelter and pick another cat. I don't know what to think. I think our youngest cat, who is 5, would benefit from having someone other than the 17 year old around. They aren't really friends. Maybe it is just too soon. What do you think? Hope work is ok for you and not too stressful.

Wow, I didn't even know there was a Thanksgiving goodie! I already had 1 Thanksgiving dinner party this past Sat night for 8, one more to go on Sun afternoon, for 8 or 10. My big entertaining of the year. Impossible to do much on Thurs though, I work until 8.

Hope you have a nice holiday and that work is going better.

Thanks for the candles. My husband told me I had to light some real ones so I'm going for a long walk this am and will stop by my favorite cathedral in town. I'm a non Catholic, but I think it is tthe thought that counts. Work this afternoon and evening, and work all tomorrow, I have to give a big exam, but that will stop me from sitting at home and worrying and not being able to do anything anyway.

Since my goal is to look good in a bathing suit while I'm fishing, I'm working on my fish moving right towards my goal weight on my weight loss ticker. A little bit corny, but I never said I wasn't a little odd.
