"There are no shortcuts to any place worth going!"

I struggle with weight fluctuations and have lost 30 pounds 2x in the last 7 years. Unfortunately, I've gained them back again. It's an ongoing battle, but I'm pretty stubborn so I know I will win!

I am a half marathon runner. I struggle with overdoing cardio and not doing enough strength training, so in addition to my training, I do Les Mills Body Pump.

Good luck on your journey! Thanks for visiting my page!

How timely is your question! I just started wearing it again today. Which shows that I haven't been wearing it... The last half of the year I didn't see much results, but that's because I stopped exercising/eating right. I still feel the same about the BodyMedia, which is that it helps me a lot. It's a motivator because if I know that I want to burn 2300 calories a day (~1900 for my BMR and everyday activities plus 400 for workout), I can see how I've done for the day and make changes to my routine if I don't get the results I want.

Also, a big problem I have is using the exercise estimates provided by SparkPeople and also from the exercise machines themselves...I know that it'll only be an approximation, but I feel that I get the best approximation with the armband. I definitely would recommend it, especially if you are motivated by numbers.

I saw a couple of your comments on message boards today & thought your feedback was great. Thought I'd check to see if the MSU in your screen name was Michigan State & smiled to learn that it is! I'm a Spartan as well, only living in Nashville now. I think I'll check out the MSU alumni group too.

Congrats on returning to Spark. The iPhone ap is fantastic! Wishing you much success!!!

Hi there! I just wanted to stop by and see how you're doing, and it looks like you're doing amazing! Congratulations!! I'm also really impressed that you hike so much, that's wonderful! I love hiking, but don't do near enough of it.

Hey sorry for the delay in response to the Rim to Rim question. We are doing it in 1 day. But from what I hear you have to make your reservations for the bottom almost a year in advance.
