Laura Moncur 2005Because of the new year, we are getting a lot of new visitors right now, so I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Laura Moncur. I’m the primary writer for Starling Fitness. At times, Michael Moncur writes, but most of the time, it will be just you and me learning about fitness and health together.

I wrote about my weight loss story so far here:

I wrote that last year and I was determined to get to goal by October, but I’m not there yet. Bingeing is a difficult problem to deal with and I am still fighting it every day. Some days are easier than others. When I can string a bunch of them together, I make real progress. That’s what this website is about: stringing enough good days together to make a healthy life.

    thanks for you story. Mine is similar…I didn’t do the weightwatchers thing but the slow but sure weight lose. I have lost much slower even than you, but I’ve made many lifestyle changes that I know will lead me to success and better health and more active lifestyle…hopefully this year.

    Good job! Sometimes I feel a little discouraged because it has been so slow for me, but other times, I look back and realize just how far I’ve come and how healthy I am compared to four years ago. I’m so grateful that I have been able to keep up the momentum.

    Thanks for reading Starling Fitness. Please visit me every morning for inspiration and ideas.
