It is weigh day again. . . I worked really hard this week and saw a 2 lb weight loss. I’m really happy with that. I feel smaller this week so I know it was 2 lbs of fat. I now weigh 221. I’m so close to the teens I can taste them. My total weight loss so far is 81.5 lbs. Only 71 to the finish line and 18.5 lbs until another picture.
I started running again this week. On Tuesday afternoon I agreed to run/walk 4 miles. I was so nervous. I was sure I had lost all the ground I had gained. It turns out I was able to run 1.5 miles before I had to take a walking break for a minute or so. On Thursday I ran/walked 3 miles. I was able to run for 2 miles before I took a walking break. I kept up a 13 minute mile pace too. I was thrilled! It felt so good to be back out there. I know. . . I’m crazy, but I really missed it. Now you get to read about my running again. I won’t be doing the half marathon in Eugene on May 1st, but I’m sure there’s one I can do in the summer some time.
I love working toward a goal. Setting my mind to something and accomplishing it.
