Hello Spark Friends!
I finally reopened my Spark page & decided to become an active member of SparkPeople again! It's funny how giddy I get when I finally update my page, especially since I have posted more recent pictures. If you look on my home page, you can see a picture of myself at my starting weight & one of myself at my current weight. I couldn't believe how noticeable the change was! It's hard to even see the little changes when you look at yourself on a daily basis.
Lately I have been receiving a lot of notice with my weight loss. I have been running into family & friends that I haven't seen in quite some time. They don't let me forget that I look different! It's so motivating to hear the encouragement. I've been needing that lately. I've definitely hit that plateau that you always hear weight losers hit. (Haven't lost more than 4lbs since December) I'm still an active Weight Watchers follower. Lately I've been behaving on WW too :) I love having WW there for me. It really helps to keep me accountable.
Since I last posted on Spark, my running has dwindled. I do NOT feel ready for the Crazy Legs 8k run. I still have 20 days to train. Hallelujah. I know I can do it... I've worked myself pretty hard this week just to prove to myself that I can reach that goal. I've thought multiple times about skipping the race but quickly reminded myself how disappointed I would be if I didn't do it. I've also reminded myself that I can truly run that 8k. All I need to do is keep working towards that goal. I know how happy I will be once I cross that finish line!
Hope all is well with everyone else.
