Good News!

Yay! I am so happy for myself-I woke up this morning and I weighed myself! I am not 247.5, which means that this week I lost three pounds. My weight loss has been a bit slow over the months because I was trying to exercise without fixing my food habits, but it's been about two weeks now since I have started trying to eat a little better.

I first started this journey in May at 259.5. So as you see, my weight loss has been a bit slow, but now I feel that I will finally start moving forward.

I have noticed this week that I have consciously made better decisions. There have been a couple of times when I have wanted to go and have something fatty, but I remember in my head that I have been feeling better and I don't want it to derail me. I've even wanted to go out and have a couple of drinks with friends, but something is telling me that I am starting to feel better in large part because I have been keeping my blood sugar stable, and I just don't want to make myself feel like crap. Good for me-pat on my back.

I've been trying to keep active, but I haven't necessarily been sticking to my rigorous marathon walking schedule. Two days this week I didn't do my crosstraining and on my long weekend walks aren't as long as they should be considering that the marathon is getting closer. So maybe I will start trying to walk a little longer.

Have a great day!


  1. Congrats on the your weight loss! If it comes off slowly, maybe there is a better chance it will stay off, you know?

  2. great to hear you doing so well! Eating for me is a big part of weight loss! I hope your results will start showing quicker now!

  3. I am a new reader to your blog and I really am enjoying it. Glad to hear that you are doing well. How did you find out about the marathon in Hawaii? It sound's like fun. I need to do something like that.

  4. How are you doing at the moment - still progressing I hope?

  5. Thanks for the encouragement everyone.

    kuhlhiggins, I found out about the marathon online when I was researching marathons that stay open late enough for walkers. I probably won't be going to Honolulu this year, but I'm aiming for a California marathon in January to give me more training time.
