The Runner in me!

6 months after giving birth to my daughter I am below my pre-pregnancy weight and still losing. I have set a goal of 119lbs (8 and 1/2 stone) but I may rethink that as I get closer. I'm back running races again and did my first ever 10k in 56 minutes 59 seconds on September 23rd and I am doing a half marathon in October. I am looking forward to setting more fitness goals in the future.

I haven't always had the best relationship with food, well... I don't think I've ever had a good relationship with food until now. My body confidence was minimal before I got pregnant but it's now better than ever before thanks to Sparkpeople. I'm continuously building on my healthy habits so I can pass them on to my daughter.

Thank you! I have been more or less MIA for months.. just getting on long enough to log and that's it. ITs been crazy so much going on. But I m hoping its all about to get back to normal so I can get back to being on full time and getting back to losing the weight and not bouncing back and forth.. losing and gaining the same 10 lbs for a few months now.

I also hope you have enjoyed the Holidays and I wish you a Very Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year!!!
Also WTG with sticking to it and getting Healthy you are doing GREAT!!!!! I bet Amelia is getting so big! emoticon

I think the big thing is that when I was younger, I was training 2-3 hours a day in and out of the pool. I never HAD to worry about what I was eating, because I was burning so many calories every day. I probably ate 3000-3500 calories a day, but I never counted. I know I ate 6-7 times a day. I do think that the several times I've been on weight watchers, I've messed up my metabolism a bit, but I seem to have recovered enough! It seems to be exactly where it should be, burning about 1650 for my daily BMR if I'm 100% sedentary (not getting out of bed for any reason).
