I am really proud of this. I gained a little back this week because I got happy about initially losing over two pounds. It happens. But today starts another week and I can get rid of it easily.
Total Loss: 64 pounds!!
Starting Weight: 239 pounds
Current Weight: 175 pounds
Pounds to goal weight: 25 pounds!!!
What I craved this week: Chicken wings. I don't know what it is about sauce on chicken wings, but they are fabulous. Add some celery and ranch and then people start shouting AMEN! But dang if those little things don't add up!
What I noticed was different about my body: I watched Biggest Loser Sunday and Monday night. There are several women who are my height and starting weight. It floored me to think that my body used to look like that.
Workouts I did this week: I started my year of running this past Sunday. I was dreading going, but I was so glad I did. I got to run in the snow for the first time and it felt so good to get out on the road again.
Personal Goal for this week: Hit all my runs and lose 2 pounds. I think it's going to be hard, but doable.
Favorite Quote for this week:
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." - Hebrews 12:1-2
What I’m looking forward to: Summer time. No joke. I know we are not supposed to wish our lives away, but I really am looking forward to summer this year. I am ready to feel the heat of the sun on my back and to get my runner's tan again.
Frame of Mind: I'll admit I've got a bit of the post-holiday funk going on right now, but this is the first time that I've had it and been running. So I'm hoping that it helps get the funk out of my system sooner rather than later.
