Welcome to my page! I've lost 44 lbs with the support of you wonderful people on SP. From size 22 to size 16. I have better quality of life and am much more active. I started with Pilates back in Feb, 2011, and am now a runner. I have learned a lot about what works for me and what doesn't with weight loss. I have fought off my cynical, scared, and discouraged feelings and habits. I am now ready to start strong again and lose some more weight.

My ultimate goal is to get to a healthy BMI of 20-23 by my 10th year wedding anniversary. An even 100# loss total would put me at my ideal weight for my height.

About me:
I am 36 years old and have 7 year old twins, a girl and a boy. I'm a registered dietitian who works full time. I started SP in Feb, 2011 and lost 25 lbs in a few months. From there I had some ups and downs, depending on how hard I worked at my weight loss. I've been maintaining a 44 lb loss for a while now, and am starting strong again.

I have a heart condition (peripardom cardiomyopathy, heart failure due to pregnancy) which means I have to ease into things. This is something I have to deal with and have had to overcome. If you see me writing about my blood lipid values, heart rate, or about overcoming fear you'll understand it's because I've come a long way. I started slowly with walking and pilates and I'm now running.

I started SP on 2-16-2011

Thanks for spotting by and for your support!

    My mom actually had a century flower - she had a succulant in the Agave family that grew a stalk that reached a good 12 feet in the air and bloomed.

    Leesha! Leeeeeeeshaaaaaaa? I've been looking for you! I miss, miss, MISS you on the island!! Can you come out and play? Please?

    I seen you're struggling with a stupid plateau! Dang it! Here's an idea...... maybe, just maybe you spending some time on the island with your favorite Azuritas will help. What'dya think? Maybe with all of us, we can kick it to the dumpster for good!! I'm sure willing to try! :-)

    Hope to see you soon, Leesh! Miss you terribly!

    Heh Century: Are you out there somewhere? Graduation over? How is life in Eagle Mountain (?). Thank goodness it has finally warmed up and we can start getting outside. One of my favorite rides on my MC is out to Tooelle (I can never spell it right and I have tried over the years but it messes with my pea brain). I love that you have your finger on the nutrition side of our bodies. Hope you are enjoying your Saturday! emoticon
