An Angel in Running Shorts

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

I've been workin' it. For 6 weeks now. And yesterday I got on the scale and my weight is 1/2 heavier. Then this morning, I woke up, and weighed in. Another 1 1/2 pounds. I'm so tired of my weight bouncing up and down. It was the first week that I felt really discouraged, really down. When you question why you're busting your hump to get nowhere. I'm thinking I will forever have an overweight BMI. Normal isn't in the cards.

At running club tonight, the run was hard, as usual. I feel like it's not getting any easier. But when I was leaving, this lady stopped me. She says "I just need to tell you we started this run club the same week. I remember because we both raised our hands. I wanted you to know that you've lost a lot of weight, especially around your mid section. You look really good".

"Wow", I said. "You've made my entire day. Thank you."

    I bet that felt good to hear!
We are our hardest critics! Remember it is not all about the pounds lost, your body is undergoing some amazing changes and you need to notice these and celebrate them!
