An Artist Within

Since I began my weight loss journey in 2005, a lot of changes have happened. Married, adopted two rescue beagles, bought a house, changed careers.

You'd think I'd be tired by this point, wouldn't you. LOL

My weight loss journey hasn't been easy - or rather, I should say it has been pretty pleasant, as long as I've had the tools to monitor what I eat, and actually *use* them.

For me, seeing what I'm putting in my mouth tally up every day into concrete numbers has taught me more than anything else how to avoid some of my typical excesses. The trick is checking in - and I let that drop last year. It shows. Now I'm back in the game, and this time I mean to hit all my goals.

It looks like you are no longer active here at SP - but I wanted to let you know your Walk to Rivendell Challenge is still going strong 5+ years later!

Hi! I wanted to thank you for posting that wonderful link for walking distances in Middle Earth. I am definitely going to work this into some sort of mileage goals this year!
