Here we are 2013, I've been with Sparkpeople for almost 7 years. In 7 years I have made some amazing friends who are so supportive and loving. I have learned about nutrition and fitness. I challenged myself to accomplish several 5K & 10K races and also fund-raised for the Arthritis Society and completed the Toronto Waterfront 1/2 Marathon in 2009. After completing the 1/2 in 2009, I took a little break from running and when I attempted to train again, I was pushed to far to fast and end up injured. It took a long time to get my shins back to normal. As a result - I got lazy.
In the last few years I have focused more on my career than my health. Thankfully, this has been successful and my career is going where I planned.
So here I am ready to make changes. Not because it is New Years Day but because it's the right time.

    Hi there!!

    Thank you so much for the kind words and motivation. It is so difficult feeling like the only fat one at such a young age. Your story of losing so much has greatly inspired me! I do hope I can eventually get that low and pray I can keep it off. So far I seem to be losing but who knows, it could just be water weight. Thanks again, kind words go a long way for me!

    you look fantastic as well, keep up the great work!

    Hi Jamie. Thank you for your support. It's so nice to hear from people that I haven't met yet that know what I'm going through and understand what it must be like. Are you on MSN? You can message me at titoanne@hotmail.com if you are. Your son is adorable! Very cute! If you'd like to correspond and support each other regularly email me at danfan@telus.net. I wish you the best of luck in all your endeavors.
