**Day 189**

I didn't post my weigh-in this morning because I was so bummed about it:

That's half a pound lost since last week's weigh-in.  I was hoping for more, and I was really frustrated when I saw that number, but a couple of friends helped me to put things in perspective.  They reminded me that the numbers are going down, and they reminded me that I'm noticing changes in my body, and that my clothes are getting looser, and I needed that little pep talk (thanks, ladies!), so I do feel better.  I have a hard time not getting hung up on the numbers, but I'm trying to get past it.   Anyway, I DID lose this week, so I'm not going to complain.

I did a 30 minute walk/run combo (1.0 incline) treadmill workout this morning:

Tonight I'll do my outdoor run, and my goal is to run for, at least, 30 minutes without stopping!  I can do it, I can do it, I can do it!!!


  1. I know it's not the number you wanted.. but your friends are right. It's not always about the number. Congrats on a loss and way to go with your exercise!

  2. Jacqui said it best!! It isn't always about the number!! :) You had a loss, stay on this path and all those small losses you may hate now, will add up to a giant loss you will love tomorrow ;)

  3. The #'s are going down, and that is great. :) I know this weight loss process can be too slow though. I just started the journey and the road ahead seems so long! I look forward to following your journey. :)
