I weighed in this morning at 209.8. So I'm now under 210, and feeling pretty good about that. Went out for a jog again this morning with the hubby. He wasn't feeling well, so originally we were just going to walk, but I was feeling pumped up, so I did my jogging anyways. Now I jog so slowly, and he walks so quickly, that we were still going at pretty much the same pace. I did manage to do a stretch of faster jogging, where I actually outpaced him (only by a bit), and it felt really great.
I told the hubby that it finally really feels like I can do this. Losing weight isn't just something I want to do, it's something I'm doing. Being a jogger isn't a dream, I am a jogger right now, and plan to continue being one for the foreseeable future. Being healthy and happy with my body isn't something that I'm wishing will happen someday, it's something I'm making happen right now.
Of course I still have off days. I still get frustrated, discouraged, and sometimes I even want to give up and go back to my easy, unhealthy ways. But those days are becoming few and far between. And even when they do happen, I know that I don't want to undo all the progress I've made so far. Instead I'm going to keep on jogging down the path that I have chosen. The path that includes jogging, and eating right, and all other things that will lead to a healthy and happy me.
