Keep Moving Forward!

Update (11/8/13): I passed 100 pounds lost this week! Running is getting a little easier and more enjoyable, too. I have another 30-40 pounds left to go to a healthy weight, but I'll never be done working to stay that way.

Update (9/2/13): I have lost 83.5 pounds from my start weight in February. Even better is that I have really changed my lifestyle. I still have about 50 pounds to lose, but I know that I will continue to get healthier, stronger, and more fit.

(2/2013): I need to lose a lot of weight and get in shape to be healthy. Unfortunately, I've been down this road before. I lost over 100 pounds in 2001-2002 and was within 10 pounds of my final goal. Somehow, I managed to find all the weight that I'd lost along with a few more for good measure. I never thought I'd be here again, looking down that long road to a healthy weight.

Thank you for the fruit goodie ... delicious, nutritious, and not a single calorie! You inspired me to make one for dessert this evening for my family - and it was a hit. Probably because the weather was so hot a refreshing fruit salad really hit the spot. emoticon

I appreciate your kind words. Yesterday's eating was much better and I've got healthy foods cleaned & ready for whatever the rest of the week may bring. No excuses to not eat better!! emoticon emoticon

Thanks for the goodie. I love blueberries! Summer has been about getting my eating back on track. I feel like I am finally getting there. I have injured tendons in my hand which has hampered my ST, but running and other cardio is going great. emoticon
