Apr 2014: Joined a local triathlon group and signed up for the Seafair triathlon in July (sprint distance)

Mar 2011 Update: I've made peace with the scale. It is not my friend and I have accepted that. :-) I've been able to make peace with it because I feel healthy and strong, and proud of what my body can do. I am living a much more active life, and have more energy every day. I am proud that I have completed several triathlons and thankful to have such a fun hobby. I am also grateful for the motivation sparkpeople has provided along my journey.

Jun 2010 Update: It's taken a year and a half to lose 15 pounds. When I started this journey, I expected to be at 25 pounds or more by now. Although the number on the scale can be frustrating, I feel so strong and healthy that it makes up for it. I actually look forward to my next workout instead of dreading it. If I go 3 days without exercise, my body starts craving it, even aching for it! I feel great! I completed a sprint Triathlon on Jun 25, 2010!!

(Jul 09) I read about spark people on one of the features of the Joy Fit Club. Hoping this will be the tool I need to make a difference in my weight loss. After starting my exercise program and making diet changes in Jan, I only have 10 pounds to show for it and have plateaued. I am hoping this will give me the boost I have been needing!

Thanks for inquiring about my first day. I really think it was a good move and I will enjoy my position once I am up to speed on it!

Thanks for the lovely and timely comment on my page and for being willing to say to me what the elderly man on the park bench said to you. I appreciate you adding me - I know strength comes from within but occasionally I also know it is fine to borrow some from others who have it :-)

Spring signals a fresh start or a new beginning - itís something we all need from time to time.

Thanks for your comment on my Sexual Harrassment blog! I know what you mean about welcoming whistles, it does give one a sense of worth! I think many women are overly offended by mild jokes of a sexual nature when often the man is paying you a complement in an awkward way. If it were more graphic or a direct request for sexual contact, then being offended is appropriate. emoticon
