I finally made it in to town to a meeting after being back on the wagon for a week - counted points for everything I ate and even got a little activity. It's been a while, but I realized if I want to reach my birthday goal of being under 200 lbs on Nov 23, I needed to start getting serious again.
I was pleased at the scales today - two pounds gone and I'm less than 1/2 a pound away from being down a total of 50 pounds. Lately everything has been changing, and I am feeling proud of myself for the weight I've already lost. I often just think about how much is left to go, but the reality is that 50 lbs is nothing to sneer at, is it?
I was talking to some ladies in my book club about running and how I would like to try running, but I don't like how it feels. They recommended getting some compression gear so I could run with less... movement... I might look into that. I feel like I would like to do Couch to 5K, so maybe when I get a job I'll invest in some gear and some good shoes.
Well, I am going to sneak in a quick workout before I go over and pick up the boys from my Mom's house.
