Epic fail: Trying to Pick up the Pieces

Times have been hard. When times are hard I turn to food....and I got FAT. Time for a new me. A happier, healthier, and LIGHTER me.

7/4/2011 - I started running, giving myself a goal to eventually run a 5k. On June 30, 2011 I met the 5k goal, running it in 36:53. Which just happened to be a personal best for me!! Hoping to just keep trucking along and find myself in Onederland here soon!

10/1/11 I got MARRIED!! Total weight loss was 42 pounds before I got married. Was pretty dang proud of myself! I just need to keep the momentum going. There is still weight to lose!

2/5/2013 I am now heavier than I have ever been in my life. Changes in my health have knocked me down to the bottom of that ladder that I was steadily climbing up. I went from being able to complete a Half Marathon to struggling to walk for 20 minutes on the treadmill in the course of less than a year. It's time to pick up the pieces.

Goals:

5k: 6/30/11 run in 36:53
10k: 03/17/2012 O'round the Loch St Pat's Run 1:10:14

199 lbs: 11/2/11 ~ 198.8 to be exact!
175 lbs: ?
150 lbs: ?
140 lbs: ?

Sarah- thanks so much for the support and kind words. I will start talking to him outloud-but as you say when nobody else is around. Thanks. I hope those darned headaches will go away soon. This must be so hard for you to keep having them and don't know what sets them off or a good treatment. BIG emoticon . Hope you feel better soon!!
