I'm Kelly! Focused losing 10% at a time. I just lost my first 10% (22.8 lbs) and am now losing the next 10% (20.5)! I like the 10% goal because the first one is always going to be the largest number, and if I know I can do that, then the next ones will feel possible.

Hubby and I are doing it together this round, as we are struggling with infertility. It is not weight related, but I do want to be as healthy as possible!

Just heard this on the radio and thought of you: that the two most energy-efficient methods of transporting people are roller coasters and *drum roll* zip-lines. Wishing you a good weekend!

Thanks for the friend ad! And yes, that 10% is cool--thats great that you find something that works for you & keeps you motivated. I *love* that you are getting healthy & realizing the importance. And sweet, when I read your intro, you said you'd do friend adding to stories/journeys inspirational-thanks! Its taken me awhile in life to reach the point last April to get that "slap in the face with cold water" where I suddenly realized *I* (no one can do it for me) needed to take responsibilty, step up to the plate & take charge of my health. Its been a wonderful, challenging, rewarding and incredible journey--one I'm still on! Know I'm soo excited for you (& your husband) & am cheering for you! emoticon step by step... emoticon every healthy decision/choice counts & is SO worth being proud of! emoticon

"...the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!”

Thanks for your comment on my blog, "I'm Getting A Scale." Hope you have a great day!

PS: The Quantum Scale sounds pretty cool! I couldn't afford that...I did get a scale today at Kmart for under twenty bucks, though!

Thanks for the gift card and the tip about summer clothes. I looked in my closet, which is now full of clothes that fit, and everything is for winter or air-conditioned offices. Need some light and airy things. Thanks!
