Ok guys…I cannot believe how busy I have been lately!! Since my last post, I’ve run ANOTHER half marathon, done some traveling, made it through Halloween AND Thanksgiving, and have lost 7 lbs!
I had a come to Jesus meeting with myself. I looked back at where I was weight-wise 1 year ago…guess what…ABOUT THE SAME. That wasn’t so much fun to realize…but I will say, although my weight has stayed the same, my clothing size has gone DOWN and I am feeling great. That being said, I am in the zone, have lost 7 lbs and can officially say I am 21 lbs away from my goal weight! Me, Grace Goodman is ONLY 21 lbs over weight! That’s like a regular person who just needs to lose 20 lbs. Very surreal.
Running is going very well. I finished my THIRD half marathon! Although my time isn’t where I want it to be…I didn’t feel like death was approaching me during this one so I will take that as a victory! Crossing those finish lines just never gets old. Around mile 8 I always think to myself ”Self, why did you do this? Never again.” And then I cross and am filled with happiness and all of the pain and tiredness leaves my body and I start planning for the next one!
Another great thing happened since we last spoke…My mommy joined Weight Watchers! She doesn’t have much to lose (she has lost 100 lbs too!) but wants to get about 20-30 off. It has been so awesome having her on plan. We are always asking each other what we are eating and comparing activity points. She has the same leader as me, but goes at a different time. I really think her joining will be my final push to 150. I cannot wait!! I am trying to be at goal by March 1. I know I have always said don’t set dates…but I’m using winter to get these 20 lbs off, so when spring and warm weather are here…I can feel confident in less clothing =) For any of you struggling to get motivated…this spring goal really helped me. Everyone is covered up and staying inside during the winter…So I am using this time to get this last bit of weight off!
I think those are the major things going on with me. I promise to get better about posting regularly! Lots of fun stuff coming up!!!
