A Mile in My Shoes

I am officially 60 down with 60 more to lose. HALF WAY THERE BABY!!!

I have been running every evening, and it feels dang awesome I must say! After running in the evening for the past few weeks, I decided to finally "clock" the distance using my car. I was hoping to build up to running a mile- it's been a while!

To my amazement, I found out that I have been running 1 to 2 miles and didn't even realize it! I am so stoked about that. It feels so good to turn on the old mp3 player and go running with my new puppy. The best part is the fact that my belly and badunkadunk don't hold me back anymore. I don't seem to suffer from the bounce back effect anymore which is nice.

My family and I just got back from a trip to PA to visit with a sick relative. While I was there, all of my husband's family kept expressing their shock over my change. The last time they saw me I was close to 300 pounds. My sister-in-law later apologized for saying something. Apparently I turned red when she said something and assumed she upset me. HOWEVER, in Kate's words, the truth of the matter is that I need to learn to take a compliment and I still feel like I have so much further to go. SOOOOO, it's hard for me to just smile and take the credit.

Maybe I can make that my next NSV- hearing I look good without turning bright red.

Congrats on 60 lbs. and the half way mark! That is quite the accomplishment!

I'm sure the new puppy likes the running too! Cardio is the best way to overall tone! You are doing great!

Congrats! I am starting to run myself. Well, it is still in the walking stage but I will get there.

Congrats! 60 pounds is a lot to lose and the next 60 pound will be the easier of the two.
