I know from experience that making small, consistent positive changes snowballs into an avalanche of change. I didn't know that I would need to pay attention to every day if I wanted to hang on to the benefits of those changes.

I'm from Seattle Washington and I LOVE to hike. Love, love, love to hike!

Other Information:
I have juvenile diabetes which puts an extra wrinkle into exercise, like checking blood sugar in the middle of a long run and carrying juice and a glucometer everywhere. Oh yes, an occasionally crashing.

I'm midway through nursing school where I am probably the oldest nursing student ever.

Thanks for commenting on my blogpost, "I'm 1/2 lb away from 50 lbs (but there's a bigger milestone I've already reached)"--I appreciate the support and encouragement.

I am going to take a moment to look over your pics and a couple of posts so I can get to know you better, but I wanted to first congratulate you on how far you've come as well! Wonderful!
