SPARTAGIRL123's SparkPeople Blog SPARTAGIRL123's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Monday Finished my 3rd day of 13.1 run walk.

I feel good! Tue, 27 Sep 2011 13:21:01 EST Day One Today was the first day for me on this website. I finally got on the scale which I haven't done in over a year. I put 175 as my starting weight as I figured that would be about right considering what clothes I am wearing and how I feel. Well, it was 172. I am ready to face reality and make myself accountable.
