Checking in!

I'm just checking in to let you know (whomever you are) that I am still, slowly making progress on my weight loss efforts :)

I have about 10-11 pounds to go until I reach the goal I have set for myself...154 pounds.  I'm not going to sugar coat this, it has been a long and slow effort.  I am so pleased that I have stuck to this for so long.  I really feel like I have changed my life.  Weight lifting and running are part of my life now.  I feel really good.  I'm not worried about the slow pace of the loss on the scale, I am losing size on a consistent basis. 

For example, I was at the same weight for the past 3 months.  Just recently, I've lost a pound.  However, in that 3 months, I have gone from a size 10 to a size 8 pants and a size 6 dress.  How about them apples???  People that know me say that I look smaller than my 164 pound current weight (I'm 5'8.)

Also?  I am getting some pretty awesome muscle tone!  I have muscle definition in my arms and upper back now!  I'll post some photos here in the near future, but I wanted you all to know that I haven't given up.  Don't YOU give up on yourself!
