Memo to Me

I just need to have a little discussion with myself.

Did you forget that this was a journey of health?
Do you realize that your weight loss is a bonus of good health?
Are you seeing that sometimes your body takes a little break before it lets more weight go?
Do you know that you have lost 63 pounds in 5 1/2 months?
If you don't love and respect yourself, who will?

I have avoided posting over the last month because I did not lose any weight. I was ashamed. I was hard on myself. However, I still made healthy choices. My mind is still made up that I have changed my body and probably added years to my life. As my husband pointed out, I have just taken 16 years of fat off in 5 months. That is incredible.

Due to my pride, I have missed out on recording some great runs, one of them being my 10:25 minute mile. I am sorry to my 4 loyal readers. I will not disappoint you or myself again. This will be a lifelong journey for me and I want as many people along for the ride as possible. It is hard for me to watch people who I love not be concerned about their health, just as I was for so long. I hope to be a good influence.

Stay tuned for info. on todays 5 mile run. Wowza!
