Well, I am walking from my house to Washington (290.75 miles) and want to get there for the Inauguration. So far I have done 82 miles with time off at Thanksgiving, so I have to step it up. I also got a blister on my big toe early on but that is just an excuse. I get lots of encouragement from folks at the Senior Center and they don't mind if I hog one of treadmills for more than a half hour. Even the Reps. that are there when I am have been are supportive.

Hi everyone! My name is Liza and I'm 35. To me, Obama represents the dawning of a new day of hope and change and has inspired me to take control of my health. I want to lose weight and become healthier in the process. I need support and I offer mine in return!
Welcome! And YES WE DID and YES WE CAN! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I can tell you that one of the greatest changes I made was stopping my night-time grazing. No eating for me from 7:30 or three hours before bed, whichever. It was not easy at first, but it got easier and easier. You can do it! You're off to a good start.

I'm new to this site, and just joined this particular team. Funny, but my headline prior to discovering this team was "Yes I (We) Can!" I just added a new photo to my images and was worried it might be offensive, but, my sister assured me it was empowering. Then I click on this site and see the Obama image with the "O" on his chest! Ha! Love, love, love it! The world is a better place. This is only day 2 here for me, but, the good news is I didn't eat after dinner last night, nor in the middle of the night. That is progress. So, thanks! Julie
