There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

You are amazing!! Good for you.

Your goal is not to see how strong your will is, or how much you can persevere. Your goal is to figure out how to make it as easy on yourself as possible, to set up your environment so it pushes you towards success, to stack the deck in your favor.

I started my journey at 385 pounds. Somehow, during my weight loss experience, I developed a love for running. As the pounds came off, I started challenging myself to go farther. Everytime I did, there was such a feeling of accomplishment and validation that it pushed me to keep going. My first big accomplishment was that I ran 200 yards without stopping. Then the next big one was going one mile, then it was 3 then 5.

At 330lbs, I decided to run my first event ever, a 10K. I finished dead last and there was never a more prouder moment in my life. The finishers ribbon became a sacred symbol of courage. Two Half Marathons and 50 pounds later, I carried that same sacred ribbon to the starting line of my first marathon. I just dawned on me that it has been almost exactly 1 year 10 months to the day I ran my first race. To go from that to the marathon in such a short amount of time was amazing but through the support I got from my friends at Sparkpeople and the love of a big challenge, I finished 26.2 miles.

Thanks everyone for the support and encouragement. This was a big event for me.
