I got a new laptop at work and now it is easier to post, so I might post now and then. The posts will still be tweet-like. It is funny because I really love to write in general ... I wrote a dissertation, for the love of Pete! But I do not like writing long introspective posts.
In a nutshell, I am still recovering from the holidays. My all time low was 48 lbs lost, and now I am at 43. I am getting back into the swing of working out, and still pushing for 50 lbs lost. At that point I will still be a few pounds overweight, but not by much.

- 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.
