We went to Brazos Bend State Park yesterday and took our bikes with us. Rode several trails and ended up going for 1 hour with a 5 minute break in the middle. It was fabulous - it was sleeveless weather with a bit of a breeze. We were riding ... Read more

The good news is that its the last of the surgeries. I'd injured my foot several years ago and the tendons had been pulled causing my foot to slightly curve in. I'd been putting it off for so long but it's finally done. Dr. says I should be rea... Read more

While I would love to see this weight come off 2 lbs at a time, I happily accept a one lb loss or even a half pound loss. At least I know I'm going in the right direction. I had hoped to lose more because I've got more foot surgery scheduled o... Read more

I've been trying to lose 50+ pounds for what seems forever. Lose a few - gain a few has been a constant lifestyle. I have always set my focus on how to lose weight but not how to live a healthy life. BUT, the past - here's the future: On Jan... Read more

I've tried so hard to get myself in gear after foot surgery and actually joined The Couch to 5K Team to help me get going. Started out fine with the walk/run schedule and my right foot (the one that was operated on) was doing just fine. But a... Read more
