So yeah, I promised to blog more in the months leading up to the half marathon. I didn’t. Sorry.
Quite honestly, my weight loss is stagnant and has been for a couple of months. I’m not gaining…I’m hovering in the 222 – 225 range.
I was really hoping to be at or under 200 by race day and that’s not going to happen unless I lose a limb.
I’m ok with it though. I’d rather be stuck here than ballooning up in to the 230’s, 40’s or higher!
Even though I’m not losing poundage, I’m still losing inches! I just moved down to a 16 jean and XL shirt!.
That means I’m down 4 shirt sizes and 6 jean sizes! Nothing wrong with that!
Also, I’m in a 16 dress (I was a 28). My senior prom dress was an 18!
I put a #ThrowBackThursday post on my facebook today that’s pretty awesome.
The throwback photo was from the summer of 2011, about 9 months before I started losing weight.
The other photo is from today.
I feel amazing!
The half marathon I’m running is next weekend.
I am excited. And nervous.
I can’t decide which is dominating at the moment.
I am more than confident that I will be able to finish it.
I just know that it will not be a fast run.
That’s ok. This first one is about running it and finishing.
Next one will be more about time.
The race is 3 days after the 2nd anniversary of the passing of my Mom.
I so wish that she could be there. She’d be my biggest fan.
I’m dedicating my run to her memory.
I miss her tremendously.
I’ll try to write again before the race…I still have photos from the Color Run I did a few weeks ago!
