    Well, since I'm moving, packing, money is tight, a lot of food is in boxes & gone,I've been losing! My pants are very loose, & my med. Size jammies are falling off me. I've had to change to the small ones & I wear heavy thermals under my jeans-or they would be falling off, too. Four more pounds to lose to be back to my weight of a year ago & that is where I'd like to be. Then I have to work on better fitness-more muscle-less fat. I would like to get down to around 18-20% fat & I would like my pulse rate to be between 62-70, & I'm getting close to that.

    Biscuit is my motivation. I had lost 70 lbs several years ago and kept it off until I started making wedding cakes. Now I can't stop making wedding cakes because the cakes support the horses.

    I was thin all my life until after I had kids and then it has been a yoyo....mostly up. I bought horses 3 years ago and ride quiet a bit. I got a good sized horse to start with, a 15.3 racing bred QH. I now have a 15.1 QH gelding that is stocky built - but since I wear a size 18 I am not tiny by any means. I had lost 17 lbs last year and gained it back over the year + 10. Oh yay.

    My horse has gotten leaner due to loads of walk/trot training for a limited distance/endurance rides. Now I need to get leaner so I don't cause my horse an issue - he has to work harder carrying me around!

    I have had wonderful results with Weight Watchers and I went back Tuesday. I want to get back to where I was before I started cake decorating which was a size 10/12. Biscuit is a terrific motivator - I have cakes all over the kitchen right now and cupcakes in the oven for a customer. I haven't touched any of it. That is my down fall....and heck...before I started making cakes for a living I never touched them.

    I am riding February 4 in my first limited distance ride of 25 miles. I have never ridden 25 miles in one day - 17 was the most and that was in two rides split with a break of about 2 hours and this past weekend I rode 14 miles in one ride. I have heard that some people lose 10 lbs riding in one of these and I hope that is true!!!
