Here's the skinny (ha) - I lost 55 lbs in 2006/07 and then gained back almost all of of it! I honestly feel like I one day I was within 30 lbs of my goal, and then poof! I woke up, no longer in "one-derland"! I remember how good I felt and want to get myself back there...

In 2008, I got to the 15 mile mark of training for a marathon and had to stop training because I couldn't figure out how to train and not eat everything in sight. It was incredibly de-motivating to run for HOURS and not see any change to my weight! Add on work stress, moving and then a New England winter... it all added up to bring me back to where I started.

What I really I want is to finally figure out to manage my health through life's ups and downs. I want to get to my goal weight and be an AFTER!


Member Since: 1/19/2009

Fitness Minutes: 2,500

My Goals:
make changes that stick


My Program:
Looking for small, incremental changes...tracking my food, brisker walks with my dog, etc. I've done this before (lost 50+lbs!) and can do it again.



Personal Information:
Raised in Texas, living in New England!


Other Information:
I have a great dog named Colby, I like to run, read and knit (but not at the same time!). I like to travel and I make endless lists, usually in a color coded spreadsheet.

Things I've learned:
--Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.

--I won't regret exercising, but I will regret NOT exercising.

--The human body is the only machine that breaks down with less use.

--Motivation, Action, Results is a cycle... it doesn't matter where you get "on" track - action without motivation is normal and leads to results (which leads to motiviation...see, a cycle!)

    Thanks for the emoticon . I always try to look for the silver lining. Unexpected exercise is an added bonus of having a dog or any pet for that matter.

    I hope you have a wonderful weigh-in today!

    Hugs,
    Michelle

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. I am glad I could share the laughter. Around here it is much better to laugh at the situation.

    A few weeks ago, I woke up to the smell of a skunk. I thought sure Bobo got sprayed. I went and checked him out. He was lucky. He must have scared it and it just sprayed the air. The smell hung around for about 6 hours. emoticon

    Life is always interesting around here.
