In 2003, I was slapped in the face with a sad reality when I'd finally decided to step on a scale and realized that I weighed 224 pounds. I knew that I was overweight, but I'd been in total denial about how bad it had gotten. The next day, I started dieting and over the next few years, I eventually got down to 122 pounds. I'd managed to lose 102 pounds and for the most part, maintain it.
Then after purchasing a house in April 2010 and my wedding in October 2010, I somehow TOTALLY stopped watching what I ate. And exercise? Yeah, that became non-existent. Earlier this year, I attempted losing weight again, but after about 2 months, I just... stopped. Again.
Well, I realized the other day that I can't get my wedding ring off and I'm up to 171 pounds as of September 2nd 2012. ACK!! Half my progress is wiped out, but I'm NOT letting it get any worse than that! I've done it once and I can do it again! Once again, goal weight, 120!

* Goal #1: 165 pounds by October 1st.

* Goal #2: 159 pounds by November 1st.

* Goal #3: 153 pounds by December 1st.

My Program:
I found that I stay on plan when I track my food psychotically and weigh myself every day. So that's what I'm doing! And I've started running (ok, I'll be honest, jogging slowly) again because I'm determined to become a runner. Hopefully soon, I'll get back my old determination to exercise in every spare moment again.

    It's worth the drive if you make a mini vacation of it. I am originally from Michigan and drove down to Atlanta (10+ hour drive) just so I could go to it and cheer my friend on. I'm just happy I got to participate last minute. That's awesome your cousin's husband did it!

    Thanks for the blog comment! If you have one near you, I definitely recommend doing it! Even if you aren't fit, it is a lot of fun. Before the race, my friend made a very accurate observation he said "This is the most unhealthy race I've ever seen, people are standing around drinking beers, eating hot dogs and smoking cigarettes and then plan on doing this race!" While I don't recommend doing all of THAT it shows the wide variety of people. There were the hard core runners who somehow ran through the mud, there were young people, older people, I saw a guy who looked to be in his 60s and not very fit on the path. It's fun because it's not ALL about 'time' it's about surviving the zombies. You can do it!

    I found a local (as in, same town, less than 20 minutes away) Barbarian Challenge that I'm going for in April. Definitely a good start, that one's only 5k, though it's similar obstacles (minus the fire and ice.)

    You just inspired me to start training for Tough Mudder next year. Thank you. :) I added you as a friend, if you don't mind!
