Hi, I am in the process of changing my life. I have been taking care of my family for years and not taking care of my self. I am now learning how to do what is best for me. I am going on a bike trip with a group of women in June and I need to be ready for that! I am also going on a trip to Europe with my Mom in Setember, I will be meeting relatives and I want to look and feel great.

UPDATE January 2009: I started bootcamp for the kick off to get back on track. I gained 5 lbs. over the holidays and that is as far backwards as I am willing to go! I am heading to Europe in April ( the trip I didn't take last fall). I am going on a bike trip this June and I want to be in top form.

Update October 24, 2008: I am now at 30lbs. lost, it took me a little longer than I had anticipated but I am still headed in the right direction. I know that I have slowed down because I have not been exercising and I am eating a bit more than before. So as I head into Fall and then Winter I know I need to focus and work harder.

DATE: July 30, 2008. As of today I have lost a total of 25 pounds. I am right on target for my goal of 30 pounds lost by Sept. 1st. I am feeling good and as though this is easier than I had anticipated, it doesn't seem like I have changed all that much except my attitude! I know I must pay attention. I have lost a third of what I intend on losing.

One of the funny things is that people don't really notice much difference yet. I guess once you are pretty big, 25 lbs. is not that different looking from the outside. I feel different and my clothes fit differently and for me that is what counts the most!

My Goals:
My immediate goal is to become as fit as I can during the next month. On June 14th I am leaving for a weeklong bicycle trip and I don't want to be at the end of the line! (I was not at the end of the line! I found myself to be far more capable than I ever anticipated. Rode 50 miles one day!

My mid-range goal is to lose 30 lbs. by Sept. 1st. I am attending a wedding but more importantly I am going on a trip with My Mom to Norway and Germany and I want to feel comfortable traveling as well as look and feel good meeting relatives!

    Hi I am really trying to make an effort to change my eating habits, back to health. I would like to be fit and trim for Becky's wedding and a $430 pot in the diet war is not hurting. can't wait to see you in Co- hope we can eat healthy for the trip

    HI!! I didn't even realize it had been 2 years. Thanks for noticing!! It's amazing to think that I started with just crunches a little over 2 years ago. I slacked on them for awhile but I do them almost every day now. I helped Rosa make a plan too and she has been doing an excellent job with it!! It's so cool.

    Love ya,

    Hey Kristen,
    Long time no "see". Good to hear from you. I've been doing pretty good but as you know it's a day by day journey.
    Keep in touch!
