I'm sick of being fat, tired, and frumpy...

I was not always heavy - I was a hottie in high school. (I have the pictures to prove it!)

I can't even use the excuse of pregnancy making me the way I am because I got down to my pre-baby weight with no effort. (Again, pictures are out there, somewhere.)

I started to gain weight right around the time I became a single mom, stressed out and trying to finish college with a toddler on my hip...

Almost 10 years later, and here I am. I'm ready to put my health higher up the priority list (actually, it wasn't even ON the priority list). I'm ready to get back where I'm meant to be... skinny and H.O.T.!

UPDATE 11.30.2008 - I'm back! And again in training for next year's list of events... Why did I ever leave?

My Goals:
I would like to lose a total of 100 pounds. Once I get down to 142, I may want to lose more, but right now I can't even fathom what my body looks like at 142!

My Program:
I consider myself currently "in training." As you can see from the list of events I can do this year, I need to train!

I'm walking/jogging, cycling, kickboxing, and lifting weights at the Y.
