Been a member since 2009 but more active in the past year and a half. After losing weight (50 pounds) as a result of a severe depression in 2014, got healthier mentally and managed to gain the weight back, and then some. It's a bit discouraging so trying to find my way back to a more comfortable body that can do the things I like to do -- being outside, walking, hiking. Trying new things this year such as trail running.

Also trying to live each day fully. Too many close to me have/are ill so work on gratitude as part of my program.

Lose weight and gain muscle and fitness so that I can do the things I like with greater ease.

    Yoo-hoo, Betsy! Thanks for popping by my blog, and for thinking of me this morning. But one little thing: don't ever consider your own efforts "measly"... they aren't! They are where you are right now, and just what they need to be. You'll get where you want to be... one workout at a time... as long as you don't give up... ever! emoticon
