I've done the loss and regain thing a couple times now. My goal is a BMI in the healthy range, to start with. This means losing at least 152lbs from my highest weight. As of spring 2019, I'm over half way there. So here I (still) am. Uh... hi! I don't do much on the social media side here anymore, but I'm tracking. (I must give credit where credit is due: my page title comes from a blog by Linda Holmes, who is awesome and a better writer than I'll ever hope to be. My avatar is my version of what I would look like if the ever excellent Natalie Dee consented to draw my portrait.)

Work on ST, building muscle with weights & body weight exercises
Someday do "real" pushups!


My Program:
Tracking, using data to make changes.

I continuously need to work on getting enough protein, keeping carbs down, and watch fat and junky food on busy days.

Fitness - get some minutes most days of the week. Walking (dog walking + some longer walks) but mostly swimming.

Mostly my plan is to not do anything I would hate to do "forever." So I don't plan to work out 7 days a week or give up any particular kind of food or anything like that.



Personal Information:
I live in The Jerz; bought a house 7/2013! I love my freakin house.


Other Information:
Lifelong dream realized 11/9/2013:

I adopted my very own smooshy little rescue dog!!

DOGGGGG! My life is complete, finally.

    Just cruising through leaving everyone with some motivational thoughts for today:

    “When we feel good about ourselves & embrace our talents & resources, we have taken the first steps toward realizing our full potential.” ~ Gillian Stokes

    “You must rise above present discouragement & keep driving steadily & cheerfully forward, as all great persons have had to do.” ~ Dorothea Kopplin

    “Flatter me, & I may not believe you.
    Criticize me, & I may not like you.
    Ignore me, & I may not forgive you.
    Encourage me, & I may not forget you.” ~ William Arthur Ward
