Only 9 to Go!
If you see someone dancing down the street, it's probably me!
I weighed in at WW today at 149, so I have only 9 lbs to go to a healthy weight. I have the Fall 5% Challenge and the BLC11 to thank for this dramatic progress.
I plan to c... Read more

I am focused on the prize!... Read more
I washed my next-size smaller shirts and went through my next-size smaller gym clothes. There is no need for me to wear tents over my slacks or "culottes" made of spandex.

Exercise on a Rainy Day
I'm curious, what exercise do you do on a rainy day?
The treadmill at the gym is my favorite way to burn calories, but that is located close to work, not so close to home. At home, when the sun shines, DH and I love to walk around the park... Read more
Under 27% BMI
Tonight, after returning home from the gym, I recorded weight of 151.9, which is under 27% BMI. I had been eyeing that number for a while. Tomorrow morning my weight will probably read higher, due to water intake rehydrating my body, but it wa... Read more
Size 12 Slacks

I can vividly remember last January when I sorted through all my slacks. I remember... Read more
Today, as co-workers discussed how much they needed to get free delivery of breakfast, I opted for a meal I haven't had in a lo----ng time: 3-egg mushroom omelette with rye toast and home fries. I figured it might be a good idea to eat differen... Read more
Thanks to a BLC Halloween challenge, I ate more veggies than usual in the past few days. I don't know why I haven't been eating a lot anyway, because I love veggies.
Apparently my body needed this volume, because I dropped all the weight I... Read more

Ready for the Baltimore HeartWalk
Saturday I will walk in the American Heart Association HeartWalk 5K in Baltimore from Federal Hill around the Inner Harbor and back.
Surely the 3 miles will be easy for me, I've fought to build up my endurance in part to stave off heart dis... Read more
Relieved to be Back on the Treadmill
This past week has been tough. I had inflamed something on my left hip, which I believe was due to abrupt changes in speed on the treadmill Level 7 walk/run (and 4 mph is a bit fast for the walking rate for me). That told me I need to get a he... Read more
