Some thoughts.. My weight loss journey began seriously in early 2008. That was an amazing year for me. I had just gotten married and then I managed to lose 20 pounds. Whoo hoo! I had never been more happy. Then 2009 hit but things were stil... Read more

For four weeks now I have been out of comission physically. It has been a very challenging time for me for many reasons. It started with dropping a stainless steal (full) water bottle on my foot and getting a big swollen bruise that I couldn't p... Read more

So earlier this week, on Sunday, I dropped a full stainless steel water bottle on my foot. Ouchy. That effectively put me out of commission for running on Monday morning. That seriously bummed me out because Saturday I had made the decision to s... Read more

Today I no longer care about losing any more pounds. (Of course I still want to but that isn't my aim). It's amazing to see what my body is capable of. Today I ran 2 miles. I never though in a million years that I would ever be able to do that. ... Read more
