Hello everyone! I am on my second go around on Sparkpeople. My first time on the site was a success, until I had to have my appendix out. My fitness routing was thrown off, and I never got it back. I lost 65 pounds the first go around, and gained it all back.

I have a more long-term approach this time around, and have lost 55 pounds, going from 235 down to 180. I am happy at this weight, as I went from a 38/40" waist, back down to a 32/34". I have started running, which I ...

I have started running, which I have never been very good at, but I am steadily getting better. My first 5k race is on Sept. 27th (City of Pittsburgh Great Race 5k). I am hoping to possibly run the Pittsburgh 1/2 Marathon in the spring, with a longterm goal of finishing the Pittsburgh Marathon.

Sparkpeople is a wonderful site which I have been using for a couple of years now, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Hi Jeff,
Thanks for the smiley, does this mean you are back with us on sparkpeople? I hope all is well, missed you at JASR. A group of the locals are going to try and just get together to take a walk some time this summer, hope you can join us!
Welcome back,
Frances

Thanks for checking in with me, after a stressful September beginning October - things are well with me. Glad to see you back on Sparkpeople. How's the running coming? And didn't you have a new job? Lynn and I got together and took a walk around the park by Phipps just before school started and that was nice- it would be great if at least the locals of the 1000 pound club could get together before JASR -

Take care,
Frances
