3 pounds to go!
Sunday, April 22, 2007
So, I have three pounds to lose to hit the 50 pound marker. I honestly didn't know if I would ever get here. But, I feel really motivated and much fitter so I believe I can definately reach my goal. I started training to run a 5K last week. It is really hard work-much harder than I thought it would be. But, I really want to do it. It's hard to imagine running for more than 30 minutes without stopping, but I know that it's achievable if I really want it- and I do. My husband runs and I would so love to be able to keep up with him. I have had a good week this week. I stayed the same all week in terms of my weight and didn't get too discouraged. I did have one day where I felt a bit frustrated and just wanted to eat sweets and comfort myself that way, which I found really alarming. So, I wrote about it in my journal and attempted to identify what was causing me to want to eat. I didn't really come to any conclusions, but I feel happy that I took some steps to try to identify what was happening. I also did some reading on emotional eating which was helpful. I measured myself yesterday and saw progress and that was good. I need to really focus on that sort of progress instead of just what the scale is telling me. The whole point for me is to be healthy and that can be measured in a whole host of ways. Most importantly by the way I feel physically and, at the moment, I feel fantastic.
