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 thought I was doing so well today and I let the thought of some stupid cookies through me way off. I purposely didn't buy any this years and then I got word that my daughter did and that they were on their way home. So I had that second Balance Bar and ened up with a stomach ache. Dang Girl Scouts. I'd also planned to walk 3 miles this evening and a huge storm blew in. If it was sprinkling, no big deal, but it's seriously windy and pouring now. I should have stuck to my original plan of getting my exercise done in the morning, but for some reason, that NEVER happens!
