I first found SparkPeople in late 2005. I worked very hard, and lost 40 pounds. Life happened, I got sidetracked, gained it all back and then some. After a health scare recently, I’ve dedicated myself to taking care of MYSELF. I know I’m no good to anyone else if I’m not good to myself first. My goal is to first lose 100 pounds, then see where I want to go from there. I just want to feel confident in my own skin again.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
Oh, what else would you like to know?
I'm coming up quickly on 30.

I absolutely love to run. I love quiet reflection. And I love natural beauty. I believe that life is precious and we should treat it as such...enjoy each moment for what it is. I don't like complications, and really do try to keep things as simple as I can...even though it doesn't always happen that way.
I say how I feel and often put my heart on my sleeve and/or my foot in my mouth. But at least I'm genuine. What you see is indeed what you get.

I love margaritas and getting caught in the rain. :o) (not a big pina colada fan) I'm kinda into yoga. And I have more than half a brain.

**Quick! Name that song!**

    Happy Birthday my friend!!! Hope you and the family are doing well!! Miss you! What's been going on with you? Any big plans for your birthday? Been going crazy here still with continued changes at work and we (Emma and I) just moved this past weekend. Hopefully once we're settled I'll have more time to get back on here on a more regular basis.

    Hi Carrie!!! What's up dinosaur? ;) How are you? Are you guys done with school yet? Monday is Emma's last day - yay!! It's been a long year and a really hectic spring for us - activity overload. But, I'm really excited to say that Emma completed 2 5ks this spring! I just wish I could have done them with her - one day. So what's going on with you? You've been pretty quiet here too I see. Sorry I've been MIA....missed you!! Drop me a line when you get a chance. Love ya! (((hugs)))

    You and me both girlfriend! I've been MIA too. I guess I haven't convinced myself yet that I'm worth consistent effort - it's either that or it's ADD. We had Emma tested again recently at the urging of her teacher and the doctor just called me late last wk to say he sees definite signs of ADD just based on the teacher evaluations. I've been doing research on it and have read that a lot of times it's hereditary. Then I read this one book "Driven to Distraction" and my mouth dropped open....hello, it was me all over that book! I had a really hard time reading it for Emma b/c I saw so much of myself in there. I've always said she's a lot like me so it kind of makes sense. There's so much involved, it's confusing, it can wrap in despression, anxiety and all kinds of stuff to the point where you really wouldn't think it was ADD just this other stuff - so not sure what came first. I meet w/her doctor next week to discuss in more detail and go from there.

    What's shaking.....well besides the ADD, there's work that is beyond chaos because of our upcoming system conversion, and the possibility of buying a condo. Oh, and of course you saw about the She Speaks conference which isn't until July. Ever been or know of someone who has? I'm really excited, but kind of nervous too - don't know anyone who is going and it's in NC - I must be crazy! lol But I feel it's something I'm supposed to do so I'm going to do it!

    Girlfriend, please blog! Not that I don't want you sharing w/me b/c I so do (you better not stop! lol) but blogging is such a great outlet. Plus it's a great way to journal your story. I keep thinking of all these blog ideas but I don't do them and then I could just kick myself! This journey is beyond weight loss ya know what I mean? I know for me I'm stinking on the wl front, but there's a lot going on on the inside that is just as important if not more so.

    Ok, so now I've written a book on your page!! lol ;o) Trust that feeling Carrie.....take care of yourself, not just the physical - everything. Thanks for checking in with me!!! Keep in touch ok?
    (((((big hugs to you)))))) Love ya! ~Lori
