Hi and welcome to the team emoticon

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

So glad to have you on the team!
Happy running!

Whether you think you can or you can't, you are probably right!


Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

Welcome and congrats on your weight reduction success, as well as your success with running. Just thought I'd share, 36:45 is my 5K PR as well. :)

Hi! My name is Kathleen, I've been playing around on Spark for over a year now but haven't really participated in the message boards so far. I'm 25 and currently living in Redlands, CA.

I started losing weight when I was 20 years old and 242 pounds. I just woke up one morning and, on a whim, decided to see if I could handle a vegetarian diet. This led me to an ever-increasing awareness of my body's needs and abilities... I learned to cook and enjoy it, started working out and discovered that I love weightlifting, and began reading more on health and wellness. Now almost 6 years later I'm down to 166 and have made many DRASTIC changes.

Vegetarianism only lasted about 2 years, but a year ago I was diagnosed with celiac disease and am now on a lifelong gluten-free diet. I cook almost all my own meals from scratch and for the most part stay away from any package/processed ingredients and refined sugars. Lately I'm experimenting more with vegan baking/cooking, though I still eat meat.

I've also started running, which has made a noticeable difference in both my body and mind. It's a great feeling to push your body and watch the miles go by. I haven't done any races yet (and am not a very good runner yet in fact... my PR for a 5K distance is 36:45, but since that's down from 46:00 I'm happy!)
