Two of our first grade teachers are running the Disney World Marathon today (26.2 miles)!  Rachelle was my inspiration for starting this blog.  http://chunkygirlintraining.blogspot.com/

I watched her go from this:

To this:

How can I NOT have inspiration in my teammate!  Her dedication is unbelievable!

Now, I will admit, I do not have the desire to be a runner. I see the people running and I think "you are crazy!"  but I do want to be a smaller, healthier version of me.

If I can run multiple miles, that is a bonus for me!

I look at where I was a year ago and I see how far I've come.  A friend sent me a Facebook message yesterday and said that I'm looking "Wow!"  I needed that confirmation that what I've been doing has been awesome!

I don't have a weight loss number in mind for 2013.  Why put a number on it.  I think it is better to just strive for health.

Just remember that


  1. What a great inspiration.

  2. You yourself are inspiration because even with your crazy busy schedule you have not given up on yourself :) Go you !!!

  3. Holy crap! That's me! Thank you, I am very touched---and totally shocked to see myself pop up :) And YES, you are an inspiration too. I know it's hard to see looking in on yourself. But unless you have ever been overweight (obese in my situation), you can't begin to imagine what it's like struggling to be healthy. You are battling something so many people are up against-and people can relate to your struggles. Keep up the amazing effort and work! You have accomplished a lot in the past year too.
