I reached my goal weight with SP!! Now it's 4 weeks & 10 lbs to go!

Saturday, January 16, 2010

Okay, kids. I have reached my initial goal weight loss!!! THANK YOU, SPARK PEOPLE!!. All of the friends I have made on here are so incredible and have tremendously blessed my life. Reaching a milestone like this (and in lbs loss I have no idea how many total stones it is, but it's a LOT!) is tremendous for me. And me being me, I want to push for more. I have four weeks until my first half marathon and I want to come in at my IBW = ideal body weight for my height. That means I can stand to lose 10 additional pounds. I want to fly, as in NOT WALK, along the race route. And how unbelievable would it be to place! I just might weep if that happens, so be prepared. So please, please, please keep me accountable. The first step has been to log my food regularly and I have been going strong for one week. The second step is to consume enough calories for all the exercise I am doing per my routine in addition to the run training while not Over-consuming. This is no easy task, let me tell you. I can finish my day feeling completely satiated and yet my Nutrition tracker will show that I haven't consumed enough calories. It's a mental challenge for me too. Nevertheless, I CAN, I WILL, AND I BELIEVE!! I CAN DO IT!!
