I often ask myself in this question. Especially when Iím in the car because I tend to be directionally challenged. However, Iíve asked myself this about life as well. So, now I guess I need to answer it. I am going towards the weight loss finish line. Arenít we all?
However, I am finding that you have to remember where you started to figure out where that finish line will be. I still am not at all sure of the exact number on the scale I would like to achieve. I guess over the next 12 weeks I would like to come close to figuring that exact number out. However, in the short term I would like to lose 11.8 lbs. That seems fair. Since (iĎve already lost over 140, whatís another 11)
I start my journey about 20 months ago and I could barely walk for 30 minutes and stairs were my nemesis. I know workout 5-6 days a week, do mud races and run half marathons. I am so not the girl I used to be. I am not even the fit girl I once was. I have surpassed everything I used to be.
I used to think I would be happy in a 10, ecstatic in an 8 and would give anything for a 6. I now own a pair of pants that are a 4. Who knew? I still have work. That sounds so odd to me considering how far Iíve come. But I do. When you lose so much there is a ton of toning and just a ton more you want to accomplish, however, now I know that I can. There is no more Iíll start tomorrow.. Itís all about what more can I do today.
In the next twelve weeks, I will train for a half marathon by running 3 days a week, continue with my turbo fire, track everything I put in my mouth and increase my water to 100 oz instead of 80 (this is going to be tough). I will also celebrate all the milestones and will reflect back on where I have come from and where I will be going.
today I'll post today's picture as soon as I can get it off my stupid phone :)
