My beginning was when I realized just how vain I really am. 17 months ago I gave birth via c-section to a beautiful baby girl. Due to health issues and hospital screw ups I was a swollen 245lbs. Now, over a year later I'm holding steady at 200lbs and quite frankly pissed about it! While complaining to a co-worker about all the options that had failed me she said quite innocently "You should run." This is something that is beyond foreign to me but okay.....I'll look into it. I e-mailed another friend that had started out a chubby smoker (much like myself) and is now running marathons. What she sent back was a wonderful and informative e-mail containing a training schedule!!! Well due to some set backs I've had to modify that schedule a bit but damn if I'm not out every day doing the best that I can! I'm not looking for miracles but 20lbs would be nice. :) Oh...and I'm about to sign up for my first 5k in July to support LifeLine of Ohio!!! I may end up walking it but come hell or high water I'll finish! :)


  1. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around you jogging. How's it going?

  2. The running is slow but the walking is getting faster by the day! I running!!!!! Funny stuff!! :)
