Woo hoo! I had my biggest loss in a while. Today I'm down 2.8 lbs! Sooo close to 3! :) That puts me in the 240s, baby! FINALLY! It's amazing to me that it has taken me so long to lose 10 lbs! I know plateaus happen, but, I'm not sure I've ever experienced one that lasted 4 months!
It makes me think. The last 4 months have been tough. I stuck it out! I totally could have quit by now! Honestly, there have been days that thought has gone through my head. Recently. In the last week, even. I'm not quitting, though. Even though the scale has been kinda "stuck," I've definitely reaped some benefits! Lately, I'm really seeing the difference. Here & there...some places more than others. It's kinda cool to walk by a mirror and think to yourself, "Whoa...wait a second." I keep seeing glimpses of the person I'm becoming. The skinny girl I've always wanted to be.
I see great differences in my fitness level. In running - and as of right now, I haven't pushed myself much further than 5K. As soon as this weather truly breaks, watch out! I've done more than that before, but it has been a good 6 years. I keep finding myself wondering where this road or that road leads. What the mileage is. I'm anxious to get out and explore a little past my neighborhood. Turbo Kick has been helping a lot in the last week or so. Tonight starts a full second week. I'm planning on taking a water aerobics class later in the week. I've never done it, but my friend invited me to try it. I love the water, so I'm sure it will be good. It's great to try new things and trick the body some! At this point, I don't want it to get too comfortable!
So - I'm going strong... I'm not going anywhere but down! Have a great week!
