I am very excited that I raised enough money to participate in my first walk on 6/5/11 in Kankakee, Illinois. I have always wanted to do a walk like this and I am very proud of myself and grateful to everyone who supported me. I have been very busy with finals this week and have not had a good workout for awhile. Luckily, I have a week break until my summer semester begins and I will spend this extra time trying to get organized. I need to get a workout routine back in order and lose some more weight. I just, read for every 1lb lost, 5lbs of pressure is taken of your joints!!! I better get my butt moving.
