Hi all! I'm "sillyrichie," and I'm 42 years old. I've struggled for a while with my weight (years actually), and now I am tired. Tired of trying and failing, tired of MLM fads, tired of being so far from what I was, that I can’t see me anymore. I used to say I couldn't work out at all, even as my legs deteriorated to a point where I couldn't walk anymore. Sometimes today, my feet still try to get me to believe this. So I have to relearn to eat, how to think, how to love life. It's coming a whole lot easier! Basically I'm on here because I figure someone out there's had something similar and I like lending support as much as I need to be supported. Life's not ONLY what you take from it, it's what you give back! If you want to talk, please feel free to contact me and I'll write back!

My Goals:
Long term goal: to run the Boston Marathon in the next 6 years.

Smaller goals:
1. to fit my wedding dress - and need it taken in - by this time next year (May 8th).
2. to reach a healthy body weight.
3. To run a tough mudder by the end of October :)

My Program:
I've recently rediscovered how good water tastes with a little lemon juice in it! I've also been carefully measuring my portions and working out regularly.

My workout consists of running the C25K program (I'm currently restarting the program but REALLY trying to KILL it this time), and still can't believe the progress this program helps you make! On my off days I go for a long walk and do some strength training. One day, my "pipe dream" goal is to be able to run the training plan at the link below, but we'll see how well I do at C25K first :)

Personal Information:
My name is Richelle, and I'm very silly (hence "sillyrichie"). I take great pride in being silly because it is, I believe, what keeps me looking as young as I do! I am from Canada (born and raised in Manitoba), but I spent a good chunk of time in the Niagara region in/near New York state (and I still get homesick for it). I recently moved to Virginia to be with my amazing (and supportive) husband, and absolutely LOVE it!!!

Other Information:
I love to read, I love music, and I love to cook. I also love to give people things (even if all I give them is a smile, which is sometimes the biggest gift a person can receive). I thrive on being encouraging - if you need a cheerleader, I'm your girl!
