A week or so ago, I finally got to the 5 minutes of running point. Eeee! I'm great at walking at a 3.5 to 3.7 pace, but beyond that -- ugh. So I broke through that wall last week and have been trying to maintain at least 5 minutes of running dur... Read more
First off -- I didn't weigh myself today. I'm going to aim to NOT get on the scale every day. Seems that became a pretty serious habit of mine for awhile. And, unlike some people, I was okay with ONLY maintaining. But any day I'd find myself a p... Read more

I can't afford to renew my gym membership, so I'm trying... Read more
I didn't forget again. I've actually been doing well since I wrote. I'm back to being aware of what I'm eating and how much, and I've even begun fitting work-outs into my work-days again. Used to be so easy when I had so much down time at work, ... Read more
I'm kind of back.
I decided in the shower this morning that I really, REALLY want to reach my goal weight. I'm just not satisfied with where I've settled. Granted, I'm still down from where I was when I started, but I'm not to my goal weigh... Read more
My big sister, Susan.
As many of you know, the reason I started this journey is partially because my sister has been in need of a kidney transplant and I was in line to donate, supposing I was healthy enough.
