I'm amazed at how my body is changing for the better. This morning my niece played violin in state solo competition and was really amazing. They were running ahead of schedule and so we had to jog/walk REALLY fast and I wasn't even winded.... Read more

Got my hubby back from his business trip last night (yeah!!). Got out and walked at lunch! 2.54 miles at about 4.5 mph, I even jogged 9.25 minutes of the 34 I was out there. That helped me come up with a new goal: jog at least 5 minutes... Read more

I'm now just over halfway to goal and it's great. But I am afraid of maintenance. I have been working with the reality that **this** is my life if I want to remain healthy and I'm pretty okay with that. However I started with a strategy t... Read more

Monday morning here at work is my usual weigh-in time (we have scales that are calibrated yearly). I thought I'd prolly have good numbers this morning, but no idea how good as compared to last week. Last week I started @ 179 and dropped to... Read more

Went to the local festival here in Columbia with friends and saw lots of people that I knew... of course... I am peripherally attached to many different alternative groups... pagans, homebirthers, belly dancers, etc. I have worked on becomi... Read more

I have been getting the Spark People e-mails and have finally decided to switch over here. The community seems more supportive and just better for me. I have lost about 13% of my starting body weight and I feel wonderful. I'm exercisi... Read more
