- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.

Having reached my first goal, I am rewarding myself with a new bike. I have a bike, but it is way too small (built for a much shorter person than I) and I cannot ride it more than 20 minutes. I have a long way to go, but you gotta start somewhere. Also had a great night at the track, and felt better running than I have since last summer. Gloating in a happy moment!
