    You are being WAY too hard on yourself about not meeting your goal! And your running is absolutely awesome!! Just think what you will be able to do as you continue to drop weight. Yes, it is disappointing that you "cheated" , but the important thing is to not make that a reason to ditch the plan entirely (which is what I did several times in the past). Just get right back on plan and keep going.
    One thing is I would caution you to not push too hard on increasing distance/ intensity on your running or you WILL hurt yourself. Take it from someone who knows. Do not do any more than 10 percent increase in distance in a week's time, and spread it out. What I am doing is maintaining my distance/ speed, etc until I drop some more weight, because I know if I hurt myself again it will be months before I can make more progress. I want to do another half marathon in the spring, but I will not start training until I loose that 20 lbs I need to loose first. Till then, I will keep my 15-20 SLOW miles a week. It is too hard to train and loose weight at the same time, because training too hard makes you HUNGRY!

    Keep looking at that tape measure - the scale doesn't know how awesome you are, that little guy does!

    Good job so far, keep it up!

    Congrats on the inches lost and on your running times - don't focus on the scale it's evil.
