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!
