Stalling and motivation
Monday, November 02, 2015
I have done a great job losing 55 pounds and keeping it off so far. I have not been as motivated this past month as I have been in the past. Some mornings I just do not feel like getting up and working out. November is a new month and I am determined to continue to work out and I am determined to see the scale drop and another pant size drop.
I am proud of my hard work. I was wearing a size 24 at the beginning of the month. And beginning November 1st I am wearing a size 18/20. Closer to the size 18. I can even fit into some XL skirts. I have gone from wearing a 2x to a Xl for tshirts.I still like the 2X because I they are baggy on me and reminds me when I was a teenager and how much I enjoyed baggy shirts.
I have reached my goal of being able to run a 5k. I have been working on my time. Trying to run 3.1 miles in 40 mins. I have come so close to that goal. I would never have thought that at the beginning o the Couch 25K program I would actually finish it and be able to run that long. I will be working on a transition program they have to go from the 5k to 10k. My next goal is to be able to run a 10k by June.
I want to be able to step on the scales in January and say that I have not gained any weight but instead I have lost weight. That has helped the motivation this morning. Also, having a great support/accountability group to help me helps.
