I began my journey on Calorie-Count in July 2005.  It was a beautiful entry into the world of healthy living...eating the right foods at the right times and making sure I never took in more than I burned off.

On March 29, 2006, I was at my lightest weight ever: 135/137 (fluctuating daily).  Since starting with this site, I've lost 37 pounds, dropped three sizes and am starting to look more like my athletic competitors now. =)

My motivation: It all started in 2005 when I watched my husband compete in Ironman Lake Placid (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bicycling, 26.2 mile run...all back to back in one day).  That course is very hilly and I know I could have done it with the extra weight...but didn't want to.  It motivated me to lose weight.  I signed up for that Ironman for 2006. I was 172 lbs in July 2005 and by the Ironman, I weighed 135 (height: 5'6"). I dropped from being a size 12/14 to a size 6/8.  YEAH!

Well, it's now 2010 and I began counting again. Just wanted to lose 10 quick pounds because I had put on a few extras...but I ended up dropping below my 135 goal. My size 6s are now too big...but I'm not quite ready to buy a new wardrobe. I'm now 131, working with a weight training, and think I can reach 128 by the end of the summer.

Everyone who comes here will experience a great site, meet great friends, have great support and have a great time.  I guess the word of the day is "GREAT!"

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
