I am no longer 37 as I was when I started! I'm almost 41 and am back where I was weight wise when I was 37. Never did reach my goal weight, but I was on my way. I felt better, was eating better and exercising regularly. I changed my scale today...I was just going to leave it until I got the weight off...but decided to be honest.

Funny how much easier it is to gain weight than lose it. Certainly don't notice a pound here or there when it's being put on, but when it's coming off we celebrate!

Never really stopped exercising, but was certainly less consistent...it was the eating that got me. I was certainly not eating as healthy as I had been but I think what really got me was the AMOUNT I was eating...I stopped measuring and tracking....BAD MOVE!

I have accomplished some of my goals: I did 2 sprint triathalons, some 5k's and a 10k. Didn't accomplish others like running a half marathon in 2010.

I think it will be easier this time because I KNOW I can do it. I started measuring and tracking my food again and working on the exercising consistently. It does help that I'm signed up for the WARRIOR DASH in 2 weeks! Guess it's time to re-evaluate and re-write my goals!

My Goals:
Mid-term goals
1) Lose 30 pounds
2) Tone my body
3) Be able to run not just walk - I can run! although I feel like I'm starting over again, I ran a 10k 4/2010 as well as as a 4 or 5 5k's in 09-10.
4) Eat healthier foods

Long-term goals
1)Maintain weight and fitness
2)Complete a small triathalon by the time I'm 40 - I did do 2 sprint tri's in 2009!

My Program:
Right now I'm just eating better (healthier and within calorie limits) and running/walking. Throw in some push ups, jump rope or resistance tube training occassionally. It's time to get serious and put a plan together to get some sort of consistent routine in place. I do plan on starting to train for a half marathon in the next few weeks.

PREVIOUS: I started just doing cardio 2-4 days a week. I then bumped it up to 5-6 days a week a minimum of 30 minutes and added circuit training 2-3 days a week. Along with that I started the nutrition portion eating healthier and staying on the low end of my calorie range most days. I have actually added more cardio sometimes doing cardio 2 times a day.

Personal Information:
Originally from Wisconsin I now live in Florida and need to get a beach body!

I am married with 3 kids, we love camping, boating and 4-wheeling although we don't get to do much lately ...I want to go on the boat or to the beach with my kids and not be self-conscious.

    I was reading the message boards and I saw your profile picture on one of the messages. I have been looking all over for the website that lets you do this.... you know, downsizing a picture of you to show how you would look after so and so amount of weight loss. I would really appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction to have mine done.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. I still can't believe that I wrote that blog considering that is something I did not tell a single one of my friends.
