Finally Fit!

After spending the majority of my first fifty years as an overweight couch potato, I decided to turn 50 at a healthy weight and get physically fit. That was seven years ago and after losing 70 lbs., I am a slender, healthy, grandmother who loves to run and bike. I still struggle with food issues and wish I could say that it is easy to keep
the weight off but it takes daily effort. I'm here to further that effort and gain motivation from other people who can appreciate the struggle...

Love the new profile picture!!

I hope your back is doing better, and I'm glad you can do some stretching. Are you going to try Yoga? Or isn't it that kind of stretching?

I missed the Y tonight. I've been so sick the last three days (strep/virus combo). I could barely move around the house Saturday and yesterday. I stayed home sick from work today because I spiked a fever in the middle of the night. I'm feeling much better now, though. I'll be at the Y tomorrow night so I can get my red belt for tae kwon do. I tested :)Thursday, so I'll find out my rank then. :)

Want to borrow the next JD Robb novel?

Thanks for the book. You know I've already pre-ordered the next JD Robb novel, coming out in November, right?

Sadly, I honestly didn't know you were MIA this week, as I've been MIA with the exception of tae kwon do. Nick had meet the teacher night on Monday, Logan had preschool open house last night. Hopefully things are back on track for both of us.

Feel better soon!!!
