AARRGGGHHHH.....Sept 18 Weigh in

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

I HATE plataues!!! My weight has stabilized at 270ish(272 today). I am running on my non-training days now with Donna and I know I'm getting stronger. Donna had me do some .5minute sprints today at 10 deg incline. I did the first one at 9mph, but had to go to 8mph for the rest of them. I can't even imagine having thought I could do that just a few months ago, so I'm NOT disappointed at all in that.

I continue to have people tell me that they can really see a difference, so that too is motivational, I just wish I could get some more of this weight off. We did measurements last week and Donna pointed out a few of my measurements that have really changed in the course of 4 months. I'm excited for the future and I won't give up....

    Thank you all for your comments. The fact that anyone is reading my jabbering is helpful for me. I really try not to let the scale be what I focus on, but the first 30lbs came off pretty well. BECKYANNE1, you are right the scale sometimes wants to take its own sweet time. Donna reminds me not to focus on that. I DO beleive that I'm putting on some muscle, hence the plataue. PATTERD707, I appreciate your continued support. I can run that fast, but only for short bursts, but the 10 deg incline really kicks my butt. I did check out the SparkCoach feature yesterday for the first time. Thank you all again.. r

    Way to Go! Keep it up and you will see those lbs come off. Sometimes that scale likes to take it's sweet time to move.

    Hey you are doing great ,and maybe the 2 extra pounds you regained is muscles building up and toning ........ can get frustrating although it comes with the territory . Just keep on pushing. emoticon

    Been there!

    You're doing great. The fact you can run that fast is amazing!

    Do you use SparkCoach? I've found that it's nice having someone who knows the SP program to bounce questions off of.
