Who Are We and Why Are We Headed for Shamrock?

We met online in 2005 trying to--what else--lose weight. We've had our ups and downs along the way, but we're not where we want to be. This is our journey to get fit and healthy. We invite you to follow us as we "exercise" our way across the country--track our progress on the map to Shamrock below-- in an effort to each lose 50 pounds by the end of 2009 and adopt a healthier lifestyle along the road.

Where will we go once we reach our goals? The sky's the limit... but we're thinking Greece would be nice.

Observations: I'm starting to get out of control again with eating. I have been hungrier the last few days AND baby Elvis has been too, wanting to nurse more often than his usual 2 hour span. Gotta be a connection there. Doris Day (13) and Obi-wan (10) had a piano recital, and that's where the candy and bars came from. I don't know why I ate them...they weren't that good and I knew they wouldnt' be. But I ate them anyway. Go figure. I think I've had a brownie in some form over the last 4 days. What's up with that?
