I never knew how big I was getting until I saw a picture of myself. I have 2 very active children, a wonderful husband, 2 dogs and cat. I love my friends. They are all very supportive but none of them have issues with their weight. I need support from people just like myself. I also have a chronic disability. I struggle with pain daily but I am making the changes in my life that allow me to do exercises that work for me. I have to admit, the more I exercise I think I am distracted from some the chronic pain. It is such a relief. I am no longer obese!! I am still over weight but NOT obese :)

I have stopped making excuses for what I can't do and started just doing what I can do. It sure is an amazing feeling when you surprise yourself by doing what you can do and it turns out to be more than you ever dreamed of.
Life sure is starting to look up!!

    I detest humidity! Yup, better to be safer than sorry and not run until it backs off.
    Love that you made lots of $$ - now that exciting!
    Zumba should feel good tonight, although I've been fighting a headache that won't quit. I've been stretching my neck & shoulders but fear I've added back too much sugar into the diet, that needs to stop now.

    Hey girl, sorry I've been MIA for the past few weeks. How are you doing? I see you're coming up on that 60lbs-lost milestone; congrats!

    That does sound like an interesting Mother's Day. I hope you weren't too disappointed but would understand if you are.

    My 5K yesterday was at the gym on the treadmill. I forced myself to do it and I did not run/jog the whole thing. I had to do intervals. My legs feel good and strong, it's now my lungs. I'm still recovering from the cold which makes workout difficult. I have a 5K competition on June 5th that I'm hoping to run/jog the whole way ... I got some work to do. Of course, on race day my adrenalin will carry me most of the way. No leg cramps or adverse affects last night so I'm happy.

    I did wear my new "race outfit" yesterday. I've worn the pants before and they are fine. The shirt will take some getting used to - mostly the feel. It's the first time I've had a shirt that is made for running. Everything stayed in place so I didn't have to tug or pull while going the distance - that was my fear.
