February 26, 2010

I didn't check in here last week. I had a pretty bad week for eating that week, so I honestly just didn't feel like writing about it. I had a much better week, although my weight is close to where it was 2 weeks ago. I was able to journal most every day this week, and I KNOW that helps so much.

19.8 lbs. lost so far

February 12, 2010

I couldn't really think of a catchy title for this week's post, so I just put today's date. It wasn't a great week for eating because I didn't journal most of the week. I ended up gaining 1 pound from last Friday's weigh in, but I'm okay with that because last week was such a big drop for one week.

I am currently working a program my aunt told me about called "couch to 5k." I have had the desire to run in a 5k (and be able to jog the entire thing) for some time now. My aunt and I are both trying to work through the couch to 5k program in hopes to run a 5k together in May (the Komen Atlanta Race for the Cure, fyi). Yesterday was my second day of the second week, and I can already tell a difference. I think the program is really helping to train me for running with more endurance! I will try to keep updating my progress on that training as well as my weight loss on this blog. With God's help, I do think I can make it to my goal!

Weight loss so far: 20.2 lbs.
Weight left to lose: 17.4 lbs.

A breakthrough!!

Since my last post, I was able to journal every day--which was my goal. I also was able to go to the gym twice this week so far. I think the exercise is really making a big difference.

Since Monday, I have lost about 3 pounds. Today was my lowest weigh in yet. I am hoping that my weight will stay this low and continue to drop.

Yeah! Thank You Lord! I really felt like I have been in a rut recently, and this week I was able to see a breakthrough. I am posting updated pictures as I have now hit the 20 lbs. lost mark. You can also see all my weight loss pictures together on facebook.

Weight lost so far: 21.4 lbs.
Weight left to lose: 16.4 lbs.
This was also a big milestone week for me. I was very encouraged because today's weigh it means I have lost all my Caleb pregnancy weight and am now at a health bmi. :o) Thank You God!
