Getting Back On Track!

I have been off track for over a year and I am happy to say, I am back.

Towards the end of 2011, I had to stop running and before I knew it, the weight started piling on. I was really embarrassed and didn't want to post a weight gain every month, so I just dropped out. Well, we were moving and I had left my whole lifestyle behind, my life was really disrupted for a while, so I ate. All this is really just an excuse, but it took me a long time to break out of the rut I was in.

Towards the end of 2011, I had to stop running and before I knew it, the weight started piling on. I was really embarrassed and didn't want to post a weight gain every month, so I just dropped out. Well, we were moving and I had left my whole lifestyle behind, my life was really disrupted for a while, so I ate. All this is really just an excuse, but it took me a long time to break out of the rut I was in.

Now that things are "normal" again, I really wanted to get back in shape. When I left SP, I weighed more than my tracker was showing because I just stopped moving it. Although the tracker is 1.8 pounds higher now than I was showing before I left, I am actually almost ten pounds down and feeling good about myself. This is a big THANKS to my SP friends that had faith in me and encouraged me to come back. Well, I am back and right on track!


I saw this on THECRUSADER's page and copied it for my page too!

Personal Information:
I used to be an AOL "Junkie". I met my sweetie on line and we have been together going on 18 years. So, our favorite movie is "You've Got Mail"

I have written three book s about raising butterflies entitled "If You Plant It, They Will Come" "Butterfly Gardens and Raising Butterflies" and "The Butterfly Lovers Primer" The second book is an updated version of the first book, but the third book is totally new. All three books are available at Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble.com







Other Information:
Weight loss is a journey – tackle it in stages.
Some may get there very quick, whilst others may take ages.
Weight loss is a journey, some take the stopping train,
And they get off at the station, and then get back on again.
While other lucky people seem to travel by express,
With no apparent effort, each week they weigh in less.
For some of us the journey, too often seems uphill.
We never seem to get that far, struggle though we will.
Weight loss is a journey – anyone can go
But as you travel on your way there’s something you should know.
Losing weight’s a journey that is different for everyone,
Some are happy to stroll along while others need to run.
If you want to complete this journey, then forget about the rest.
Each of you must travel the way that suits you best.
As long as you believe it, you WILL get there some day.

Cynthia, thanks for your comments on my pics! Gail kept me entertained during law school :-) She would keep me company on facebook during those interminable classroom lectures. And yes, greyhounds make great pets. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a dog. That pic of me is actually several years old, but still one of my better ones. I don't consider myself particularly photogenic!

Cynthia, thanks for commenting on my blog! I do feel like I'm off to a decent start, although I was hoping to have more time to blog. But that's okay. I'm not sure what to say yet anyway :-)
