I officially hit the 30 pounds lost this week. It feels so great to be 30 pounds lighter and moving down in pounds and out of my now to big clothes. It is a good thing that I never got rid of any of my clothes that did not fit. They are beginning to fit again. I am so happy. The weight it coming off a little slowly, but I set it to lose 1-2 pounds a week. I find that the biggest loss is over the weekends. I have not figured out why yet, but that is how my body works. 20 more pounds then I am down to 250 and halfway to 200. My husband told me that when I reach 250 he will do something special for me! My goal for next year is to get down to 150. I know that will be harder, but I will hopefully stick with it. I know my college roommate will help. She wants to run a half marathon with me next year. We even looked at hiking the Grand Canyon together. So I have to get in shape and stay in shape for that.
On the running front. I am running three days a week. Finished a week and half of C25K W3. Will hopefully be moving on to W4 come monday. While waiting for my running partner this morning, I ran a mile on the indoor track. I was so proud of myself. I ran it last week and this week. Last week it was the tread mill. This week it was the track with no walking. So with the C25K program also, I ran 2.65 miles. I like the sound of that. Slow and steady is the best way for me. I cannot wait to see I can run 3 miles. After I do that, I want to focus on how fast I can run it. Once that comes together, I think I will do the Bridge to 10k. I might just have to get up earlier when it comes time to do that. This summer is going to be brutal running in the mornings, but I have to ignore that and just stick with it.
