This time the weight loss will be for good, since My health is now being affected, and I need to have more energy, and stop abusing my body.
Ive been reading books on vegetarianism, and am really excited about the health benefits.

    Thank you for reading and responding to my blog.

    I think we do have to have that all or nothing mentality sometimes or it would be harder to dream big. It just has to be tempered with a dose of realism at times.

    Thank you for stopping by my community journal. I'll never throw in the towel. It's too hard taking the weight off to give up on it. Congratulations to your weight loss success so far! emoticon

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. Looks like you did a 5K, in reading some of your blogs. The 5K itself would not be too much for me, I've done 5K lots of times, but I just couldn't keep up with the training schedule due to my work schedule. It's dark when I leave and dark when I come home. Although I walk up to 5 miles a day using Leslie Sansone's Walk at Home DVD's, I didn't want to use those for training for my 5K. I'm hoping to tackle it again in the spring when the days are longer.

    Best wishes on your journey.
