I have been on SparkPeople for years, and have lost weight alongside so many motivational people such as yourself -- a total of 100 pounds. Miraculously, I have kept it off for 2 1/2 years now. I have never been very interactive or social. But today, I'm feeling very ungrateful. Your example has been so inspirational to me, and it breaks my heart to read your recent blogs. So, I just want you to know how amazing you are. Hang in there. I added you as a friend and I hope that is okay. I certainly owe you a great debt. CShullCShells
saw your running blog about your injury. have you ever considered this race. http://hitstriathlonseries.com It's a triathlon that offers aquabike ironman and half ironman. There is one in Waconia Minnesota. I think that might be the closest to you but could be wrong. Just because you can't run doesn't mean you can't race! Good Luck!
