My Weight Lose Journey

Friday, July 12, 2013

I did not take a before picture back in November when I started back to my weight lose journey with Spark People because I was really mad at myself for gaining weight. I had been at my goal weight for several years and with my Life Journey taking me away from My Sunshine State and Running Buds I let Depression take hold, which lead to weight gain. I stopped running after having surgery and I think my metabolism had a hard time adjusting. I think I was gaining about 5 lbs a week which made me even more depressed. After getting on the scale last year after Thanksgiving, I said no more. I guess that was my AHA moment to get back on track. So now I have lost 23 pounds and want to at least loose 17 more. I still have not been able to get my running motivation back but have at least increased my fitness minutes to about 60 - 80 minutes a day and taking rest days. I use to run about 6 - 9 miles a day with a long run on Saturdays. I still plan to get back to running and I signed up for a race in FL next year as my goal, push motivator. Today will be kick boxing and some Cardio. It will be a Rainy weekend so mostly indoor work outs. TGIF!

    First of all, what race here in Florida? Secondly, stay positive, embrace all those great run experiences from the past, including crossing that finish line, and hug them positive waves! I know it's in you, Sharon, and you will excel!

    I know how depressing it is to gain weight back after working so hard to lose it.
