Maintenance, Marathoning, and More

Greetings!

I've been a member of SP for over a year now (whoa!) and my goals just keep changing so this is "intro" numero 4.

I've reached a point where I'm no longer trying to lose weight, but am just focusing on maintenance and training for various races, half marathons, and probably a second marathon eventually. Oh, and I really wanna do my first triathlon soon too!

If I never hit that "125" target I'm OK with that. I fit all my old clothes (from when ...
Greetings!

I've been a member of SP for over a year now (whoa!) and my goals just keep changing so this is "intro" numero 4.

I've reached a point where I'm no longer trying to lose weight, but am just focusing on maintenance and training for various races, half marathons, and probably a second marathon eventually. Oh, and I really wanna do my first triathlon soon too!

If I never hit that "125" target I'm OK with that. I fit all my old clothes (from when I did weigh 125) so I figure it's not really about the weight anymore and more about my body composition. That said, still aiming to keep below 133ish but am not stressing about the rest.

SP has been a great place for me for so many things - I'm thrilled to be where I am now and I know SP helped me get here.

My advice to any newbies: consistency and commitment. If you practice those in your approach to weight loss, weight maintenance, fitness goals, etc. you will be amazed and thrilled at your transformation - mental and physical.

Whoo! :)

It has been a while! Good to hear from you too! :) I'm definitley trying this recipe ASAP. Mouth is watering at my desk, I love anything balsamic.. I may have a problem ;) Impressed you campe up with that.. Question, where do you buy the coconut flower, and will the egg wash still work with only egg whites? I always have issues when trying to "bread" things LOL. Never works for me. It always sticks to the pan or falls off the meat.

When I first started back in 2009, it was like a month before I lost anything and it was a few pounds all at once. I try not to get myself discouraged over it but sometimes it happens I do :P I just gotta keep reminding myself that consistency is key :]

Hope you have a great weekend!! emoticon
