Did I hit the top 100 for weight loss this round? NO
Did I lose any weight? A tiny bit
Did I hit my goal weight? NO

Was this round a Success? ABSOLUTELY YES emoticon

emoticon The scale is not always the best measure of success.

Here is why this round turned out a huge SUCCESS for me:

1) I had many FIRSTs emoticon

emoticon I ran my first 5K (Time 29:27)
emoticon I ran my first 10K (Time 59:28)
emoticon I ran my first Half Marathon (Time 2:44:20)
emoticon I went from running 1.5 miles nonstop to 6 miles
emoticon I’m following my first Half Marathon training program for my next Half
emoticon I became the TNT leader for the awesome SPIES

2) I shaved off 2:79 minutes from my 1.5 run fitness test.

Beginning round time: 15:05
Ending round time: 12:26

3) Summer time has always been the most challenging time for me to lose weight. I would normally gain weight during the summer….darn Dairy Queen. I am thrilled that I maintained my weight. I got a dose of what maintaining feels like and it’s tough.

4) I had a couple of major stressful events that did not derail me that much. I was able to get back in control.

5) I inspired others to step out of their comfort zone and try new things. emoticon emoticon

Now....for all you BLC newbies, come join the Silver Spies for Round 23. I promise you a challenge and many SUCCESSES!
