I must confess that it’s been a long time since I posted an update. I’m still going strong on my weight loss journey and healthy lifestyle. I continue to lose weight, but it’s been much slower in recent months. I think I was a little unrealistic with my plans to lose 3 or more pounds a week for eight straight months. My goal of a 100 pounds down by December will get pushed out, but I’m happy to say that I’m very close to the 50 pound mark! I’ve run three 5K runs; one an extreme obstacle 5K so I’m very proud of that accomplishment considering I only started running in April. I have very little clothes that fit, so if you see me in the same outfit a lot, bear with me. I’ve dropped four sizes in clothes and getting close to another size. Between my husband and I, we donated 100 gallons of “too big” clothes. Speaking of my husband, he has lost about 70 pounds, and is gearing up to run his first half marathon tomorrow. I want to continue to encourage you to take whatever steps you can to embrace a healthier lifestyle. If it works for you to make major changes great. If not, every bit helps. Thank you for all the words of encouragement I continue to receive. It means a lot to me.
