The Scales Says....

I don't know when the last time I posted about my weight was. I remember the last time I weighed myself I was up from the week before, but I seriously need to document the ups and the downs. Life will have them, so I need to acknowledge it! Anyhoo, here's where I'm at:

Starting weight: 168

Current weight: 134.5

Total Weight Loss: 33.5 lbs

I have 4.5 lbs to go to reach my goal weight. That's exciting for me. When I began this journey I wanted the weight off, be healthy was secondary to being thin. Now I appreciate the strength my body has gained as it has lost some of the excess weight. I enjoy exercising, even when it's not running. I carve out the time to do the work, and when I fall short I don't throw in the towel for the day/week/month/life. I still have a long way to go in this journey. But I am so thankful for all of the insight that I have gained thus far.

Captain Mom and I are lookin good, people!

Goals for the Week:
#1: Get new running shoes. Before I injure myself.
#2: Eliminate some sweets from my home. Not all, some.
#3: Remeasure myself. Cpt Mom and I measured ourselves back in February, and I'd like to see the progress I've made in inches!
