THUNDERGIRL, YOU LOOK VERY GOOD, I DON'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH YOUR WEIGHT. THAT YOU WANT TO TONE IS VERY GOOD. YOU HAVE FLAT STOMACH AND NO DANGLING ANYTHING AND YOU HAVE A VERY BEAUTIFUL PAGE. CONGRATS ON EVERYTHING..
I don't mind at all that you're my friend! Running is a crazy thing--I really believe you're either a runner or you're not. I also started out several years ago *trying* to run (I am not a natural runner, it took work)...was up to 3 miles and then quit...this time, I've managed to stick with it. It helps to pick races or talk to fellow runners so I don't lose motivation.
Keep up the good work! You're so close to your goal...then it gets easier...or at least I think it does! :)
