I wanted to check in and share some proud achievements! Mike and I completed our first 10k on Saturday, and I ran the whole thing!! I finished in one hour and four minutes, and while I wasn't trying to make a certain time, I liked the sound of it
Here's a pic that I have clearly ripped off:
Also, I worked back down to my goal weight of 130 (130.8 as of this morning, but who's counting? Close enough to celebrate!!)... It has taken me 15 weeks to lose 15 pounds, some weeks better than others, but I'm so glad I recommitted and will feel and look good for my sister's wedding in June.
Speaking of... I had a really nice SV/NSV during pre-wedding festivities. I planned her bridal shower and bachelorette to fall on the same day, so that the most friends and family could come together to celebrate. We had a blast, but it was a long weekend full of sweets, booze, and Mexican food (my faaavorite), as we were in San Diego for the festivities... I tracked all of my food- even tortilla chips and salsa that I enjoyed everywhere we went, lol, and I still lost 0.2 pounds! Never have I been happier for a -0.2!
Here's a picture from Sarah's shower with my dear future mother-in-law:
I hope all of you are well. Spring is here, and with it beautiful weather and renewed motivation and hope. Love and aloha to you all!

A new year is here, and I'm making a change.
I LOVE Sparkpeople and so appreciate this tool for helping me lose weight and maintain not only a fit body, but a fit mind as well. Most of all, I credit the community for endless inspiration and warm support.
However, I have found it difficult to tap into those very things in maintenance on Spark. I think this is the venue for learning about weight loss and losing weight, but now I am looking for a support system for maintenance. I have just signed up for myfitnesspal and I am creating new goals that include scary awesome hikes EVERY week(!) and saving money (which always seems to lead to saving calories as well!).
I am walkingred on myfitnesspal as well, so if you'd ever like to check in, and you're on as well, please do!
Best wishes to you all in this marvelous new year!
