I used to take life waaayyy too seriously. And in the process, began my weight gain.

I never thought I used food to work through stress. I was just busy / running out of time / didn't want to bother & made poor choices. Ummm...same thing. *rolling eyes*

I am one of those people that lost 150 lbs 10 years ago. And since then... I have gained it all back. So I *know* I can do it.

But this time I think it will be with bunny ears or a clown nose...

Personal Information:
There are no tricks. Run because you have to. Run because you love it. Run because you want to be fast. Run because you want to be skinny. Run to find some quiet time. Run to sweat. Run to eat. Run to hear your heart pound in your ears. Run because you're a runner. Run because you gotta keep the streak. Run because you don't know why the hell you're running. Run because you fought with your partner. Run because your job is &hitty. Run because you got no money. Run for the sunrise. Run for a race. Run because it's impossible. Run because it's easy. Run instead of doing the laundry. Run instead of watching TV. Run because no one else understands. Run because the cool kids do it. Run because you're tired of talking. Run for numbers. Run for feel. Run to prove something. Run because it f@&$ing hurts. Or don't run. If you got something better to do."

    Welcome to SP.
    It was my greatest find and I hope you will find it a huge help to your new healthy lifestyle.
    There are so many ways SP can help - use them all.
    If I could give you one tip it would be to log your food intake daily. It is surprising how much you learn about yourself.
    I am still having trouble exercising but I have a lot to lose and my knees complain if I do too much!
    Make this an adventure and a hobby and enjoy the journey.
