I lost 90 pounds several years ago, through diet, exercise and yoga. Unfortunately, in the last few years, I gained 60 pounds, and all but quit exercising. During this time, I went through some significant personal crisis, resulting in my moving to Puerto Rico in 2009. Due to the limited access to fresh foods and lack of motivation, I pretty much stayed static with my weight and health.

My name is Tammy - Pfifer was a high school nickname. After going through a tough divorce, my business collapsing, and and packing on the pounds, I have found myself needing to make change. I am tired of either being obsessed with every morsel that I put in my mouth, or going to the other extreme, total neglect of my body. As long as I don't have balance, my focus is on food, and my weight - and life is too short for that. I now have a wonderfully supportive husband, and together, we are working to find that balance. This time I will find my "freedom" size. When I was a size 4, I had to be aware of every morsel I put into my mouth. Tracking food, obsessively working out, and compulsively weighing myself. At size 16 I am totally neglectful of my body - giving not a second thought to exercise or nutrition. . . this time I will find the size, where I simply enjoy my life. Where it is okay to splurge every once in a while, where moderate exercise is a joy. In addition to my wond

Heyy, remember me?! I posted a blog about scones and you shared my pain. Here's the thing... I found a recipe in Cooking Light magazine for low cal scones! It's about 160 calories for one, which isn't the greatest, but it's a heck of a lot better than something you could get at Starbucks.
I just entered it on sparkrecipes. Here's the link if you want it: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta

Hello, and Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was good. Thank you for the encouragement re: the Walk for the Cure. I'm still turning the idea around...I've NEVER done anything like that before. I was the kid who couldn't do the ONE pull-up in P.E. class (oh the horror!). So I know that even just trying it would be huge for me. I can't wait until the info packet comes in...maybe I can get a group together to walk it with me. :) All's well over this way anyway...saw a loss this week, and I still feel great....if a little bit antsy. Isn't it hysterical?? I used to be able to do nothing but sit still....now I CAN'T! I have to get up from my desk and stretch and walk around every half hour....cracking me up!

We in the Pacific NW are enjoying weird spring like weather with warm days for us and lots of sunshine. I am hoping that you are keeping warm and safe with all the snow and cold weather that is happening east of the rockies

I might get out my short ski's & "ice skate" around the neighborhood today! I have not run outside yet. I have a one story house & run inside. It does slow me down running around the corners & furniture!
I am finishing up week 4 of the couch to 5K training.
Enjoy this snowy day!!
