GatorGal - thanks for your support! Glad I could help you along as well! I was lucky enough during my journey to just not fall off the wagon...I did eat poorly at times, but my theory on losing weight is that I am going to "eat out" and eat things that aren't on plan...and that is okay as long as I make up for them by getting on track the following day.

LukesMommy - thank you for the compliments! they really make you feel good...especially (for me at least) after spending 5 years of not having them...or having them but not feeling them! I currently spend about 30-40 minutes on the treadmill. When I started I could only do the elliptical due to shin splints, and was on it for an hour. I then moved to using both the elliptical and treadmill trying to become a runner...and I'd vary it between 30 minutes and 60 minutes. Now I only do the treadmill and am trying to improve my 5k time...so currently between 30-40 minutes are spent on it...although I am trying to increase my distance....so that may change....it definitely took a lot of time for my strength and endurance to build up to use the treadmill as I use it today.

CountingDown - thank you very much! I am very happy these days and feel pretty fit as well! I run faster than some of the boys and for longer when at the gym...which makes me feel very good! I can't wait to get some really awesome "runner legs"...

Check out the dress I wore to a fundraiser/Clam Bake this past weekend. I must say I'm slightly impressed with myself! Please ignore my phony looking smile, I'm really bad at it when I'm taking photos of myself!

That is so AU-some. oh I am sorry all the SEC hype. My fingers just keep getting twisted. Thanks again for the inspiration!!! 11/01/08!!!

Haha DeltaGurl - I love the SEC talk and do it myself sometimes around here as well! 10 whole months - it's amazing that it took 5 years to put it on and only 10 months to take it off...seems to easy, right? Well as long as you stick to your plan - the one that works for you - it can easily be done! Thanks for your compliments!

Everyone - thank you so kindly for your nice words. Some days on this journey it was difficult, but honestly - one of the best things that worked for me was to come to 3FC and read, read, read - learning from the pros. Good luck in all your journey's!
