A little birdie (maybe named Ella) informed me that you ladies might be looking for me. So:

Life is crazy. Getting my master's degree is a lot more work then I anticipated. Oh- Did I also tell you that Andrew (DH) got a new job? It's wonderful! He's home all the time now, but....he's home all the time now. LOL.

I am walking a lot. Averaging about 20 miles a week. Since the beginning of my journey (aka January)- I have completed three 5Ks, one 10K (EEEP!) and am planning on walking a half marathon in October. I also am signed up for three more 5Ks.

I finally hit ONEderland:

And have been SERIOUSLY preparing for baby making. It has completely shifted my focus. I have started drinking raw milk, going to a chiropractor, went to an OBGYN last week and had quite a bit of tests performed, and went to the dentist. (http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/230568.php)

I think part of me felt like I didn't have much to contribute anymore since I wasn't really focused on weight loss anymore- I was focused on this radical life transformation. Weight loss was/is just a very slow, but nice by-product.

But I miss you ladies (and gentlemen if they are still hanging around). I especially missed you when I discovered virtual races (like this one- https://www.facebook.com/events/361270710667584/363283643799624/).

So, my dears and new friends, how are you? What's new? For newbies- what is your main focus at the moment? For all- what is the most delightful thing about this week?

(Also- for those that are new and curious, since my "numbers" are vague. At my heaviest I was 252- now I'm in ONEderland. Huzzah. I've lost a solid 40 pounds in 2013. I'm meeting parts of my body that I forgot I had- like my hip bones and muscles. A few months ago I discovered my collar bones, which are now my favorite part of my body.)

Well, fancy seeing you here! ;) :hug:

I wish I could be doing 5K's (and holy cow, 10K's!) along with you; I've been joining you in spirit though and will get back in the game next year when my condition isn't so . . . delicate? :dizzy:

I'm so, so happy you finally made it to Onederland! :hug: And even if you aren't concentrating on weight loss, you're doing some amazing things that many of us are still striving to accomplish. Keep it up girl, and don't be a stranger. We've missed you here! :^:

It came off as sassy!

You look fantastic and I'm so glad you've checked in! I've missed you!

Have you started prenatal vitamins? I was told to start them when I wanted to get pregnant (of course, that was 20 years ago :-) I hope you "catch" quickly!

I like your progress pictures! And I think that last one looks perfectly sassy. :) Your overall change seems pretty inspirational, and I thank you for posting!

And since you asked about us! Being one of the newer people on site, I... am mostly just working on making sure I keep going. Not being too disappointed if things don't go perfectly as I'd hoped. Making overall life-changes that will eventually lead to a healthier me. I am enjoying my journey so far!
