Back to the future...

2012 is requiring me to update my page. Life is way different now, and I need a fresh start here too.

A little background. I joined Sparkpeople in July 2008. Things were going great, and I managed to lose about 20 lbs by the end of '08. Then I discovered running and running friends, and things REALLY got good. Before I knew it, it was the winter of '10, and I was 50 lbs lighter.

A little background. I joined Sparkpeople in July 2008. Things were going great, and I managed to lose about 20 lbs by the end of '08. Then I discovered running and running friends, and things REALLY got good. Before I knew it, it was the winter of '10, and I was 50 lbs lighter. I ran a bunch of races, culminating with HM with friends in Chicago in Sept '10. I had maintained about 40 of the 50 pounds lost. Life couldn't be better.

And then 2011 hit. I won't regale you with the details; if you want them you can read my blogs. But by the end of the year, I was a widow, and the 50 pounds I'd lost were back.

So now my theme for 2012 is back to the future. I'm getting rid of those pesky 50 lbs for good. My DH is forever gone, but at least I can get my health back. I'm planning to be around for a LONG time to come. Just a LOT less of me.

I'm leaving my list of races below. Need to sign up for something - a lot of somethings - and add to my list!

I can relate! I gave up on myself pretty much completely and now it shows in the form of a rotundness I've never seen before and do not desire to continue to see! THAT has motivated me. Looking like my round mother, no thanks!

See your around the loop! ;)

Hey there Sister Linda...I am just trying to hold myself accountable and getting a grip on my big mouth and getting back to real exercise. Hopefully I will get results. No scale here...maybe that's a good thing. Anyway, we GOTTA do it!!! BTW, if our house doesn't sell before then we are planning to come down in August for mangos and avacados..maybe you'd like to come for a bit, something to think about. C'ya soon...

How are your Saturdays looking in Feb! Let's shoot for a park meet up! I plan to look for some 5ks soon. Please let me know if you know of any fun ones. I'm trying to stay focused this year. Where did January go?

You can do it!

Tamm
