Don't you KNOW!!??
Things WILL change.
Things'll go your way.
If you HOLD ON, for one more day.
I know that there is pain but you hold on for one more day, and you'll break free;
Free from the chains.
~Wilson Phillips (from memory)
This weight loss thing is tough! I am hanging on.
Being in pain sucks. It is taking away all of my work. Running. Running. Running!
I weighed in last Saturday at 237.9.
I started running again.
The family walked to the lake, it was 2 plus miles. I wasn't in pain. I walked most of it and jogged the last .25 mile.
I decided to go back to the gym, get back on the pony that bucked me off (treadmill).
I ran a 12 minute mile!!!! I didn't stop once. I felt like it went by very fast.
.25 mile: 3:07
.50 mile: 5:53
.75 mile: 9:04
1 mile: 12:00
I weighed 272 pounds in March. I weigh 237 pounds in May. WOW.
The more I move, the stronger I feel.
WednesdayI went to the gym with my husband, and ran a mile and a half. It took me a while..I think like 17 minutes. I wasn't running as hard as I do when I go on my own. It was nice to have the time with him though.
Got home and cleaned the house, while my husband cooked dinner: pork skewers, rice and salad. I passed on the rice, ate a big helping of salad with my "homemade" dressing with garlic oil and raspberry vinegar..mmm. The pork was so good. I had a small portion that got even smaller once I nibbled around the fat.
FridayTonight I went to the gym, for my time alone with God, while my husband slept. On the treadmill. I was going, prepared to run a mile and a half. Then I noticed the clock on the wall.
One hour to closing.
"Self, I am going to make you run for a solid hour."
Here we go.
It was SOOOOOOOOO not easy.
I sweat more than I've ever sweat, my hair was drenched, and I was dripping.
I know. DISGUSTING.
I was kicking some ass!!!
A woman from down stairs called, "Alright you guys, we're closing!".
It was at that moment that I crossed a specific distance. Its my number actually.
I had run for one hour, without stopping!
I just ran 4 miles!!! Holy crap (not that crap is Holy)!!!
This is a photo from about 2 weeks ago. My stomach is flat, my hips are coming in, my legs are leaning..
There is a lot stored on my butt and legs..my entire mid section, below my belly button really.
I need to start toning my muscles with weights, phase 2.
I'll weigh in tomorrow....
