I am here to hopefully get and give the kind of support we all need to finally reach our goals! I have been struggling with this whole weight thing since I was 13. I am tired of the judgement that some people pass on to to what they see as a simple lack of self-control. I am in this to get healthy not just for vanity. I want to feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally. I suffer from cycles of depression and PCOS. Both conditions make life a struggle at time. I often feel like giving up but know I deserve to be the best I possibly can. I love to walk and run but life gets in the way and I have to come back to asking myself what is my priority? I am an animal lover but partial to my girls(dogs)Sopie and Lexi.

My Goals:

After reaching my goal of running the Crim 10 mile road race in 2009 I completed my first half marathon....the Brooksie Way. This year I have completed 5 half marathons and 5 10 mile Crim races. I am hooked now and realize that the goal of completing a race helps keep me consistent. . Since my knees have given me issues I have switched to long distance walking, but I hope to get the weight off and try running again one day!

My Program:

1. Eliminated processed foods as much as possible.
3.Stay consistent with a Strenth training and cardio program 6 days per week.
4. Divert Emotional Eating by investing in other proactive behaviors.
5. Work on the inside by keeping a regular bible study program.
6. Live in the moment.
7. Refuse to give in or give up.

Other Information:
I ran my first race(8K) on December 30,2006. I loved it and want to continue running. However I fell off the wagon shortly after.....but began running again as of December 2008. January 2009 I tore my ACL. The running was on the shelf until April or May. After purchasing a pretty pricey brace and getting about 13 sessions of Physical therapy, I completed the Crim training program and ran my first 10 mile race August 22, 2009. I then trainied and completed my first Half marathon called the Brooksie Way. Now I will continue doing long distance walking and making progress with my weight loss goals.

    Hi April! Yes, Sam is our new dog. Well, he's an old dog with a new trick! LOL! He's an English Setter, and he's my dh's hunting dog, but when they don't go hunting, I'm walking 2 dogs, or should I say they walk me? He's an absolute sweetheart, not a mean bone in his 6+ year old body.

    Hi there, no I'm not doing the Crim, but Rach is running the Bayshore Marathon on May 29 and she wants me to walk the 10K that day. I'm still having some pain issues from my foot surgery in Dec. so at this point, I plan on walking it, I'm hoping the almost 2 months time will allow me to get it in gear!

    How long is the race in Davison?
