    Thank you!

    Lunar: yes, lol, unfortunately just a plant. I'd love a dog but don't want to get one until we have a more permanent situation (a house). We have an apartment right now and doesn't seem like the time for a dog. But some day ... :)

    I lost all that weight with weight watchers actually. I lost 50 pounds before ever even attempting exercise. Since then I've done P90x, ran a half marathon, and now I'm doing Insanity. Still have about 30 pounds to go though. Carbs and chocolate are my weakness!

    Welcome! Congrats on all of your fitness success! I once read that losing weight is 80% diet and 20% exercise. I recently started the couch to 5K program and I've been enjoying it. Hopefully I'll get to that half marathon point some day!

    Bella: Insanity does just about kill me still and I'm half way through it, lol. I love it though. It helps that I've done P90x though I think. And now is where I lose points because I actually don't watch TV so I have never seen Glee and also never read the Harry Potter books, lol. I have watched some of the movies though and they are pretty neat.

    Sparkles: Keep your hope up about it and you will get there. I started with the C25k also and it really does work. After that it's just about building a little at a time. You can do it! :)

    DanieKA: Thanks! Work Christmas party photo booths are great ...and free!! : )
