|Robert Smith speaks the truth!|
I also hit a pretty major milestone on the scale this morning!
|194.0 - finally scale movement!|
Holy Carp, I'm down 50#!
I googled a couple of things that also weigh 50 pounds and was pretty surprised at a few of the results.
- A small bale of hay
- An English Bulldog
- A large bag of dog food
- $200 in quarters
If I'm sad, angry or upset, instead of dwelling on it, like I used to, I'm finding that if I go for a run or get on the elliptical that my mood instantly changes. Sure the worry is still there, but everything else just melts away and its actually calming and zen-like.
And also realizing that I never, ever want to get back to that point.
Here are some things that I'm pretty proud of that have happened since November 7th, 2012, some pretty major, others minor but still noteworthy:
- I can actually sit on the floor now and get up relatively easy.
- I ran 2 official 5K races and I'm about to run my 3rd in 2 weeks
- I ran 4 miles at once, nonstop and it took an hour but I ran every single step
- Stamina, I have stamina now! I can do an hour on the elliptical and not think twice about it. I could probably do more, but that would be overkill, I suppose!
- I have been soda free!
