Weight and Resistance Training - I'm still around...

View Full Version : I'm still around...

Hi everyone, both old timers and newbies. I stopped by here the other day, the first time in about three years! Wow, does time fly.

Just thought I would say I am still around, still exercising, and currently back in the USA. (We have been back in FL since late 2003.)

Since I was last posting here, I experimented with a :carrot: 'raw food' diet, (I have since migrated back to non-vegetarian fare accept during periodic periods of cleansing and detoxification) became certified as nutritional consultant, accepted a job with a leading supplement company, and I am now a natural health educator, teacher and curriculum developer. I recently read over many of my previous posts here on the boards, and it is neat to see that I have been able to realize some of my hopes that i had posted back in 2002.

Despite my involvement with exercise, my health has been on a roller coaster :?: over the last three years, and although i didn't gain back too much of the weight I lost initially with strength training and the lower carb diet, I have had a lot of issues with stress, and impaired digestion. However, since coming to work for my current employer, I have managed to turn a lot of that around.

Anyway, it is good to see everyone is still around, and still excited about resistance training! I will try to stick around. I am adding my blog link to my signature, so you can check it out if you'd like.

Hi Meow! I remember you too -- weren't you on an island back then, with limited Internet access? It was always fun to hear what you were up to!

Just jump right back in -- we have some wonderful new members (in addition to the oldies) but the support and encouragement are as good as ever. I'm looking forward to checking out your blog. :)

Stop by and visit the Maintainers Forum sometime -- that's new since you were here. Mel and I are the moderators and no one ever mixes us up! :rofl:

Hi Meg! Indeed, I was on an island, off the coast of south america!

We moved back stateside in the fall of 2003, but hope to one day return...But for now, I am back in a place where I can access the web night and day...a blessing and a curse I suppose! :)

I will check out the maintainers forum!
