Nice compliment!

Saturday, June 15, 2013

I met up with my marathon-training friends this morning for a run. I'm feeling like the shizzle right now because A) I ran 10 miles and have a good runner's high going on; and B) A friend asked if I had lost weight, because I looked "thinner in the face."

I balked at her asking if I had lost weight -- I have been working out like a maniac (except last week when I was in airports all week) but not losing any pounds. It's kind of ticking me off and I get crabby when I talk about it. But I suspect I have been getting a little leaner, at least in places other than my backside. Or maybe my backside is leaner but the muscle still makes it too big for my pants. The ultimate problem hasn't changed -- my butt is too big for my clothes!!

Anyway, the 10-mile thing this morning was pretty sweet. On the recommendation of my hubby, I had a "gu" packet at about 6 miles. I'm not sure it helped, but I guess I have all summer to experiment with this stuff. And to enjoy my slimmer face. (ha)

    Awesome! I'm in the same boat.... working out like crazy, not losing any weight.

    Sometimes the nonscale victories are most important... especially when its someone else that notices!!

    Good luck on your marathon. You can do it!
