I'm trying hard to keep the momentum I gained during the fall. But it's been tough since before the new year. I've gained back 10 pounds since Thanksgiving, but I think I have got it in check and heading back in the right direction. My goal this week - small positive steps to get back in a routine of healthy practices. I know I can do it. I just have to remember the positive feeling as I made progress each day and not lose sight of the end. I need to remember how good it feels when my weight is down. I was so happy to go reach 200 lbs - I hadn't been there in over 10 years and then I let it slip away. I'm trying not to get too down, but I really want to get back there and reach my goal. If I can make healthy choices a routine, it will be just a matter of time. I know it's a long slow road of good decisions and lifestyle changes that work best. There's no "miracle" food or activity. I like being active and need to make it a priority. I want to think of myself as a runner again. It's been a long time.
My wife and I are planning a half-marathon together in June - it's her goal to run her first half when she turns 50. I haven't run one in over 10 years so I want to make sure I'm ready to run it with her.
