Hello. I am tired of being on the weight loss roller coaster. I want to be healthy and welcome friends to join me on this journey.

Although I have been a SparkPeople member for years, I have not always used this wonderful resource the way I should. I am excited to be a part of this great community and look forward to having support on my journey.

Hello. I am tired of being on the weight loss roller coaster. I want to be healthy and welcome friends to join me on this journey.

Although I have been a SparkPeople member for years, I have not always used this wonderful resource the way I should. I am excited to be a part of this great community and look forward to having support on my journey.

I used to think people who ran were crazy. I could not understand why they would put themselves through that torture. Then, in a moment of clarity, I realized that all of my running friends were healthy and I decided that I wanted to be healthy too so I started the couch to five K program and shocked myself by LOVING it. Holy moly! I was running and I liked.

Last May I hurt my foot (plantar's fasciitis). Finally, in February, I was able to run again without pain. Thank you WalkFit inserts. It was a little sad to start over but I have completed the C25K progam before so I know I can do it. I have been doing two days at a time and am up to week 7. Now I want to work on speed (I am definitely a tortise) and increase my distance to 10K.

Thanks for joining me on this journey to health.

�Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.�
