    Keep it up Neil. It does get better. And with the weather warming up you'll want that extra energy to enjoy the outdoors

    That's great. Its pretty easy to get discouraged during that period.

    I'm pretty good thanks. Getting despondent about a plateau, but I need to get off my bum and exercise more. Cremorne Point walk in the mornings should do it! Its so beautiful down there, I hate getting up but I know I should...

    Very true! I guess its just disheartening to compare how good I am being now with how bad I was then, so if nothing seems to be changing the temptation to cheat is amplified because being SO good doesn't appear to make a difference. But I will keep at it, there more than the weight loss factor...

    With this beautiful spring weather, how can you fail to get outside, smile and enjoy the primal goodness. That's gotta help get you through the challenging moments. I love Sydney

    Hi Neil -- Thanks again for the encouraging words!! I am still pretty stunned that I managed that half marathon and had such fun doing it. I've now posted a picture in my journal, and that shows how chuffed I really am-- aging female self-consciousness over cr*p photo loses out big time to thrill of medal around neck :-)
