Yes, I can!

I never had much of a weight problem until I got Graves Disease (a thyroid disease) in 2000 and soon after, Type 1 diabetes. After having my thyroid removed and starting an insulin injection program, I gained fifty pounds in three months and although I live a relatively healthy lifestyle (whole grains, fresh veggies and fruits, lots of excercise), I still have not been able to take it all off b/c I have become an emotional eater. But I don't care what it takes, I WILL LOSE THE WEIGHT!!!

That's awesome that we have the same BFF! It was the best decision I've ever made in my life.
And guess what? I am going back to school for a degree in Professional Writing. So writing is something else we have in common! So glad I found another friend! Thanks for adding me!

Thank you SOOOOO much for contributing to my cause! You are a blessing! My goal is currently $200, because I had $300 set as my half marathon goal and only made it to 175. If I find I'm getting close to goal, I'll probably bump it up a bit =0)

Thanks for subscribing to my blog. While the idea is for people to read it, it has been funny having people come up to me and saying "yeah, I found your blog and am following your running journey" -- probably stranger to hear from non-runners =0)
