Slow and Steady
It's been almost 2 weeks since my last post. So much for 3-5 times a week. I have only lost four pounds in the last 12 days. I am feeling frustrated, but I continue to follow my meal plan and exercise. This week I ran two miles without stopping and followed it up by running 3 miles without stopping for the first time in my entire life. My time was 43:39. I am amazed that I could do something like this at age 40. I was so excited. I am running a race on Thanksgiving and I would like to run it all. I would love to do it in 42 minutes, but I will be happy if I beat last years time of 44:26. I know that this week I need to log my food to see if there are reasons why I am not losing weight as fast. I am trying to stay excited because I am 25 pounds lighter than I was just 6 weeks ago. I am only two pounds away from where I was before I got pregnant with Megan 5 years ago. My goal was to weigh 190 by Thanksgiving, but that may not happen. I just want to make sure that I continue to move in the right direction. I never, ever want to see 200 pounds on my scale again.
