UPDATE (08/2013): While it's true, I am still a very private person; being here on SP has helped me to open up some. My confidence is growing and I've found so many wonderful friends who support and encourage me. I'm gaining more than I bargained for by joining SP. All I can say to someone new reading this is jump right on in and be active. You'll discover some pretty wonderful things!

Original Intro (02/2011): I'm here because I need to be. I'm a very private person who needs to make a change. I was always very fit and active - never really had a problem there. But, in college, I was diagnosed with a hereditary thyroid disorder and managed to gain 60 pounds right before my wedding despite diet and lots of activity (volleyball, flag football, archery and swimming). It wasn't exactly inspiring. I spent the final fitting for my gown in tears. That was nearly 20 years ago.

Knowing that there's a reason for the weight gain is of little comfort and doesn't make the loss any easier. Since the initial gain, I've been busy with graduate school, family and work. But, now, my most recent blood work has been a new wake call for me. I need to stop pretending I'll be okay and stop making everyone else the top priority. My thyroid is getting worse; but that's easily treatable. What worries me more are the results that indicate I'm on the fast track to heart problems and diabetes.

So, I'm too embarrassed to go to the gym. Like I said I'm very private and was very fit in the past. I think I'm much better when I've got to be accountable. So, I'm starting here and making myself available and accountable. We'll see how it goes...

    Eat the damn chocolate cake, get your hair wet, love someone,
    dance in those muddy puddles, tell someone off,
    draw a picture with crayons like you’re still 6 years old
    and then give it to someone who is very important to you.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Take a nap, go on vacation, do a cartwheel, make your own recipe,
    dance like no one sees you, paint each nail a different color,
    take a bubble bath, laugh at a corny joke.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Get on that table and dance, pick strawberries, take a jog, write a song
    plant a garden, make an ugly shirt and wear it all day, learn a new language,
    make a scrap book, go on a picnic, relax in the sun,
    make your own home video, date someone you wouldn’t usually go for,
    kiss the un-kissed, hug the un-hugged, love the unloved,
    and live your life to the fullest.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    So at the end of the day, you’ll have no regrets, no sorrows,
    and no disappointments.
