The unexpected hazards of weight loss
Thursday, May 16, 2013
Yesterday was a big day for me. I reached two exciting milestones: first, I weighed in 70 pounds less than I did when I started this journey so many years ago. Only about 44 of that is "new" loss (since I got serious again in January), but I'm very pleased with my progress.
I also managed to run my fastest mile ever at 11:05. I tried so hard to beat 11 minutes, but it didn't happen this time around. I'll just have to push harder next time! I still really hate running, but a mile is a great distance because it's easily manageable, so I think I'm going to start trying to run a fast mile every other day and see how I progress.
So now a funny / embarrassing story:
Yesterday, as I was walking back into my house with my hands and arms loaded with groceries, my pants fell down! Luckily I was behind a bush, so nobody saw me, but clearly it's time for some new summer bottoms. It's a dilemma, though, because I really don't want to spend money on clothes I won't be wearing that long. I'm at an odd size, so the thrift shop offerings are sparse, but I think I'm just going to keep looking there until I find stuff that will work.
