I lost almost 7 pounds last week and now weigh 224.7 pounds. I feel awesome. I am in the best shape of my life. I feel like even though I am not at my goal weight that I am going to give myself an awesome birthday present tomorrow, which is a healthier me. And then I will go for a long run around Lake Mission Viejo as my gift to myself. Even if it is raining.
I am so surprised how much more I am liking running. At first I could barely chug along on the treadmill at 4.7 miles per hour. Now I can run longer without stopping and a little faster. I don’t feel so out of breath. In fact, on the days when I do exercise and don’t run, I feel like my workouts are easy.
Here is a new picture (I made the skirt, too!)
This isn’t the best picture. My husband is no photographer, I’m afraid.
