Dear Friends,

I'm sorry, lately I've been very stressed & distracted & just not that into swimming after the 2010 LCM season ended.

I planned to lose weight & get stronger, but haven't hit the gym in a while.

My weight loss has been going great, recently I've weighed under 200 lbs & as low as 197ish. The stress helped me lose weight. I weighed around 224 at 2010 SCY Nats. Think I'll hover between 195 to 200.

Sunday night, I had a personal crisis come to a head, barely slept maybe from 3 to 5. Monday was difficult, slept well last night & today is even better. It's forcing some positive changes.

I hope to train tomorrow and get back on track.

Soon I will figure out my 2010 SCM goals.

    So sorry about the crisis. One never knows when problems will hit and they can be agonizing. Hang in there.

    Missing a week or so at the end of LC season is nothing.

    Sounds like you may need a new wardrobe!

    thanks Jim,
    I hope to Hang tough!

    Thank you Leslie,
    I knew this one was coming & it hasn't been much fun. I will keep hanging in there & just before I get to the end of my rope I'll tie a knot. don't think this will hurt my swimming. Weight loss has been a positive.

    with wardrobe I just need to tighten my belts and maybe buy smaller speedos if the loss lasts.

    Thank you Kristin

    If I had to bet, I'd bet that when you are ready to step it up again, you'll come back fast and strong.
