As a fat kid, fat teen, fat adult, I dreamed of being a normal weight. Well, finally, I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high; 50 pounds below Dec. 2008 weight. In 2009 I achieved healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I "always" wanted! Check out my SparkPeople Success Story: (copy + paste) http://www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog.asp?p

    Oooo ... a sparkle skirt?! Thanks for sharing the link! I'll check them out.

    I just purchased 2 more skirts this week. They're pretty *loud*. emoticon

    Funny thing happened yesterday. I've been running in skirts for at least a month now. Yesterday, THREE comments from folks about my skirt. One man said, "That's a pretty jazzy skirt you have there. You're running with flair!" He made me smile. Two others shouted out comments as I ran by them yesterday. The comment from the man came while I was in our local coffee shop.

    I rarely have folks comment on my attire. So, three comments in one day was quite something.

    Thanks again for inspiring me to step outside of my comfort zone.

    I think I'm going to try exposing myself to more pavement running maybe once every couple of weeks. Tomorrow, I have a 50-minute run planned and I think I'm going to head into the hills. I haven't done that in awhile. But, I'll need to get out early because we're expecting another hot one.

    I want you to know that you've inspired me to go outside my comfort zone and run in skirts. emoticon
