That's me clog dancing. Clogging is one of my favorite things to do...but the weight keeps me down.

I am learning how my body gets to be the boss all the time and if I don't learn to tell it who is in charge, I will never get this weight off and save my knees, heart and overall health. What my body doesn't seem to realize is how much happier it is going to be when it learns that instant gratification is not best in the long run!

That is my quest, that is why I am joining a public weight loss forum and why I hope to meet others on this journey to grow (and shrink) with!!!

Pigsdontsing is not a reference to a heavy person...What it means to me comes from the quote, "Never try to teach a pig to sing, it will only waste your time and annoy the pig." Meaning, don't run ragged trying to make things what they aren't, accept things and people, including yourself, as they are right now. This doesn't mean we can't strive for better, but the only better we have control of, is to better ourselves.

Fitness Minutes: 135

My Goals:
I have many goals for becoming a healthy, balanced and spiritual person. In regards to my weight, my overall goal is to lose 100 pounds, celebrating each 5 pound increment with my aerobics class on a chart I have there (I am the biggest person in my class.) 100 pounds might not be enough, but is a better than good start. I have a planned start date of Dec 27th. I will be spiritually preparing myself and planning my goals and strategy over the next couple weeks.


My Program:
I am creating a program for myself now. My biggest challenge is sugar and limited income.



Personal Information:
I'm in Salem, Oregon...I'm looking for a buddy to share this journey with. Online buddies are great as I enjoy writing...but I would also love a buddy right here in Oregon's capital city!!


Other Information:
I'm a clog dancer, writer and and art student. I have a new lease on life at 31 years old and want to not just think about following my dreams, but actually pursue them!

    Hi Trish!

    You are so welcome for the SP Goodie!!!

    How was your Christmas??? My was pretty good. It was just my boyfriend (Jay) and I. We opened a few presents, played games, watched movies, and I made dinner for the 2 of us. It was really nice!

    This morning we went for a run and it felt really great. I just started the Couch-to-5K program. Well I started last week and the first day kicked my butt, I pushed myself to hard. So today I went at a slow pace and it was much better.

    Well I hope you have a great day! Hope to hear from you soon!

    Welcome!!! I have found that bible study and lifestyle change go hand in hand. I wanted to recommend Quick Study at www.biblediscoverytv.com....they will send you a free monthly study guide that is short and interesting when you request it. they also have free downloads you can watch on the computer or put on an ipod. check it out. I love it. Jeannie

    Thanks so much for stopping by my page. And thank you for the little push of encouragement for the week. I will remember your words and knowing that I must be accountable to at least one person will surely help!

    Have a great week.

    All the best when you start up in full force.
