It is what it is...

What always seem to happen, happened. I stopped updating here. I stopped loosing weight. I might even have gained a pound or two in the process. But I didn't give up hope - and I didn't stop believing that this is my turn to shine.
In my first post here I mentioned I wanted to get fit enough to do a 7 km race - and I wanted to lose 15 pounds before that. I am sad that the weight stayed on but I am thrilled to say that not only did I finish the 7 km but I also finished in high spirits and with more energy to burn. I was doing together with a colleague that despite being much smaller then me had much more trouble completing the challenge and I found myself having to slow down most of the time for her to keep up.
So having to slow down - and having energy to burn tells me I could have done it faster than the 90 minutes it took us. It was truly one of the most important things I've done for myself in recent years.
So all this meant I was having a pretty good week - and I didn't really think it could get any better until yesterday when I finally heard those magic words coming out of a friend's mouth. 'You've lost quite a bit, haven't you?' I felt like doing cartwheels! Yes! Someone has noticed! It is now noticeable! I am truly loosing weight and my surroundings are acknowledging it! Who cares if the weight has been standing still for a few weeks - my body is still changing for the better.
I am so motivated!
