An account of an obese woman's weight loss journey.
Sunday, June 26, 2011
I weighed in at 194.5 lbs yesterday morning! I was excited to see weight loss because of the little vacation in between weigh ins. The last time I reported my weight to you, I weighed 197 lbs on June 6th. When I weighed on June 11th, before leaving for Vegas, I weighed 196 lbs. I am only 4.5 lbs away from being overweight instead of obese. I am excited about that!
I ran another 8 miles yesterday morning. Next week I am on to 10 miles. I am going to sign up for the Sunriver Half Marathon held on September 4th. I am very nervous about signing up for an official race. I have been going over why that is and I am sure it is a fear of failure. If I run an unofficial race and cannot finish it, then no one is the wiser. I have decided to face that fear head on and sign up for an official race. It may seem silly to some, but this area of my life has always held me back. I am staring it in the face and conquering it!
