50 at 40

I'm not really sure if I ever thought I would lose 50 pounds at the age of 40. Now with 40 pounds to go, I would love to hit my goal weight by my 41st birthday on June 1. That's 10 pounds per month. I couldn't ask for a better gift. (sounds cheesy)

Anyway, I have been back to my regular exercise this week, even though my chest is not fully recovered from my cough. It still hurts a little.

Kind of all over the place today. I hadn't run outside for a couple of weeks and it was hard and my chest hurt. But, there is nothing else like it. I wonder if I will still run when my weight is off.

One final note: my weight today was 170.4

You go girl! Now I'm the one not running with this head cold. Blah! The spagetti squash turned out great. Thanks so much, J
