Caly and others,

YOu should check out some of the weight loss message board and weight loss chats here at ivillage. I have used them in the past toget on the right track when it comes to starting and keeping on a diet.

well isn't this an interesting set up for the boards. I was actually just getting ready to put my walking gear on and do my daily routine. I walk around the ballpark of about 2 1/2 miles almost everyday. I also have an exercise ball and love it. I suggest anyone who hates working out to do these two. The exercise ball is very fun, doesn't take much time and is a wonderful workout. You almost feel guilty like you didn't even work out at all, but you can feel the benefits almost immediatly. It's easy to follow!!!! I can't wait to get us all going and kick some serious butt. I just found a whole bunch of my old shorts and things that my sister conveniently "borrowed" some time ago. It is my pile of inspiration!!!!! I forgot how cute some of those things were. I once hung up the first goal of clothes around my house and work my way vigorously towards them and now it's time to get it in gear and do it again. I'm excited. Finally I found the right group of people that totally "get" my situation, we are all rowing in the same canoe, and it's refreshing and exciting!!!!


Let's get busy, stay happy and get healthy!!!!

My love and hugs and many prayers and wonderful thoughts to each of you!!!!

Funny you should ask!!!! If you scroll down the page while reading new post, I believe there is still an add for the "Flexa-Ball or Resista-Ball". I got my at Wal-Mart with a poster of all the excersises(a video is better) for around $14.00, and I walked 3 miles today, have mild shin splints in left leg, but that never stops me I just keep working out!!!

I'm so happy you asked me about it. We are all going to have a blast!!!! Time to get mentally and physically healthy. It's Spring, if that isn't enough motivation for us all, I don't know what else to do. Grab your morning coffee and go out and enjoy the sunrise and the birds. Try to block everything else out and take 5-10 mins to just "Be" it makes a huge difference in the rest of the day!!!!!!!

I feel like the Phoenix that rose from the ashes, as Susan Sarandon so well put in the Bangor Sister's, if you haven't seen it, it's a must do!!! Coming from a load of emotional garbage and a break up last summer the came after I was told "You are a miserable person to be around", never thought of myself that way, I decided enough!!!!

I'm so excited for all of us!!!


Have a lovely evening!!
