CMParker--less park; less Parker!

Hello. I have been a Spark member since January 2010 yet I have made NO progress in effectively changing my life. I work and make a few pounds of progress them I fall down and the pounds all return. So I'm here, to declare before my peers, that I am going to keep trying. I cannot give up! I must win this battle for health and emotional well-being.

Thanks so much for my seedling- I loved it and I loved your note- I will work on nourishing it... Encouragement is so wonderful to recieve.

Thanks also for stopping by my blog- I love that you started running on the treadmill- that's great- I think we are at the same place 60 min running and doing intervals just like me... let's keep on going together and see where we end up

Thank-you for your supportive comments on my blog. I had been stalled at the same weight for months, but seem to have found my groove again! I am now in the process of "releasing" the weight I re-gained over the last 18 months or so.
Take care,
Kathy

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog! I am doing my best. You should think about starting your 5K practice again. Running a 5K even if you just walk it is exhilarating. Good Luck!
