The First Step Towards Getting Somewhere is to Decide That You Are Not Going to Stay Where You Are.

My first time around with Spark People motivated me to go back to school and lose 30lbs. Spark People also encouraged me to have more confidence in myself & go back to college (finally graduated May 2014). Although, I did gain back 12 pounds that I'd lost (over the 2 and a half year period while I was in school). I'm back now working on that again. My Goal is to Get down to 125lbs and maintain that for a lifetime of healthy living.

emoticon for posting and commenting on my blog! And thanks for the spark goodie. This mission is complete. My cousin bravely trekked up the largest Mount in Africa, what a trip!

ChiRunning has been the perfect fit for me, training wise. I love the Tai Chi concept applied to running. I probably never would have given it another thought to use it, except I met Danny Dreyer at my first HM and his advice, his energy, his passion led me to look at his methodology again. I was looking for a different training plan, so I chose his method. After training for a month on the plan, reading his books, and using his phone app, I signed up for his clinic in Chicago to really learn the correct way. I am very good at the self-taught ways, but I knew there was so much more.

I would not hesitate to do it all again. I will be posting a blog soon on my ChiRunning journey. You are not the first to ask.

Many happy miles.

Thanks for the blog comments! I'm sure you can find a way to keep the stress down (and the sleep up!) when you go back to school! I think you are right on not weighing daily during a weight loss phase. I find during maintenance it's helpful (especially with using a weight tracker site, I use weightgrapher.com) to weigh daily, the trick is to not let the number affect mood or behavior, good or bad.
