It is hard to lose weight.
Even with a great motivator, I am finding it hard to resist indulging! I also have a bigger appetite now that I am running more as well. I should be pleased with my progress, but I always feel like I should be doing better. I lost an additional 8 pounds for a total loss to date of 38 pounds. I also look for milestones reach OFF the scale. I was cleaning out closets this week and came to my wedding dress. I thought it would be fun to see if it fit, and it DID! Even without shapewear underneath!
I also finally dug out all my pre-pregnancy clothes and some of them fit too! It is crazy how pregnancy can change your body. I am 20 pounds lighter than when I got pregnant, but stuff does not fit the same.
As far as running goes, I feel I am doing pretty well. I have 79 days until my 10K and I am running/walking a 5K on a regular basis. Here is my recent time progress (running more each time.)
May 15th (first 5K in almost 3 years) - 44:04
July 25th - 38:13
July 28th - 37:09
July 31st - 35:25
I am hoping to be able to fully run a 5K by my birthday (2.5 weeks!) That will give me 2 months to add some endurance and run 6.2 miles...oh boy, that sounds scary in writing!
Goal for the next 2 months:
Lose 12 lbs. - Reach my first 50 lb. goal! Kind of a lofty goal considering my recent progress, but I am going for it!
