6 Month Update!

Friday, June 20, 2014

For my 6 month milestone, I ran the Picnic Island Adventure Run. It was a 3.8 mile course with logs to run over, ropes to crawl under, tires to run through, and hurdles to jump over, plus some ankle-high to knee-high water to slog through! I'm not sure if I'll do it again. At least not more than once a year! Here's the only picture of myself I could find on their web site afterward. I'm in the bright pink shirt behind the tree! Lol!



So what do I have to show for 6 months of work?

I've lost 42 pounds.
I've lost a total of 23.75 inches, including 8.25 inches from my waist and 7.25 inches from my hips.
I've gone from a plus size 20 to a regular size 14, and an XXL to my first Medium since college (see dressing room photo below)! emoticon



And a few weeks ago, I started dating a kind, funny, hard-working gentleman who seems to think I'm beautiful inside and out.

Life is good. emoticon

    I enjoyed your blog. You worked hard to lose the weight and should be so proud of all you have accomplished.

    Keep it going. I've gone from on some 26W to a 20W without elastic and a 22W to a 16W/18W with elastic. My tankini has a 16W top and a 16W/18W skirt type bottom. I have a 24W swimdress that I have never worn that I have hanging next to the door to the room where the computer is to remind me not to go back to.

    Keep up the good work.
