Those that know me, know that in 2009 I walked everyday. It was my challenge. 365 days.

Those that know me, also know, In 2009 I was diagnosed
with MS.

I plan to conquer this and keep it at bay with healthy eating and keeping fit!

I had quit smoking in 2000 and went from 140- 180
within 7 months! UGG!(SEE FAT PIC IN THE GALLERY! )
I THEN WENT BACK TO SMOKING after 8months. I slowly
lost pounds here and there, but wasn'tuntil I joined the gym in 2003 and started kickboxing that I went from a 14 to a 6/7! That was alot of work and discipline but totally worth it, xspecially when my 19 year old son told me in complete awe, when looking at some (heavier) pictures, said
"I cant believe how different you look now from then!"
Made all that hard work loosing the weight SOOO worth it. YEAH!!DID IT!... I mainted it well too.. THEN 3 years later..
(I had )promised my self I would quit smoking when I was 35(July 06) so for me to keep this promise to myself was quite a scary step!
I sooo didnt want to gain ALOT of weight like last time (AND I DIDNT) I flucuate ALOT from 136 to 140 which sucks. . So about a month or so into the non smoking I went from 140 to 151!
Iam currently working on comming back down- being healthy and fit, verses being a "skinny fat" smoker ;)

I am now a runner(could never do that before)I ran my longest run yet- 9 miles!! Also ran and placed 2 5ks I ENJOY many other excersises!! Favorite workout - nice fall evening 4 mile runs, Snowboarding, dancing in the garage, and Turbo Jam! And finally now, I have fallen in LOVE with strength training! Learning to HUG MY WEIGHTS every(other) day!
