Yay!! Finally…two months later I left the 180s and I’m in the 170s 😀 Weighed in today and was down 1.6lbs for a new total weight of 179.6lbs. Just barely there, but I’m there. I hope I can keep this going! My total loss so far is 72lbs!!
I meant to post some blogs during the week but time just got away from me. I had to prepare to go out of town on business today. Here is how committed I am to weighing in – I actually searched out a WW centre in the city I went to and weighed-in in the morning! It was important to me and I made sure to make myself a priority 🙂
Well May is here and so is the rain – blah. I’ve gone back to running inside on the treadmill. My knees are thanking me for it! They don’t feel as stiff anymore. I think I have to go search out some nice gel shock-absorbing insoles if I want to continue running outside, the stiffness is not good in the long run – even with all the stretching.
This means the April challenge is over on the WW forum boards. My final stats were : lost 3 out of 8 lbs lost and 1330 activity minutes (goal was 1200!). Not great, but not horrible as I did get moving. I’m noticing that now it’s taking me 2 months to lose 10lbs rather then the almost 10lbs per month I was doing in 2010. I think I may have to finally admit that it’s just not going to go as fast with less to lose. I can’t believe I’m at this point. Wow. Certainly didn’t think this is where I’d be one year later.
We have a new challenge for May with the name May the Force be With You. I’m ehh on the name, but it doesn’t matter. My goals for this month are to lose 8lbs (I have 5 weigh-ins) and 1200 minutes of activity again. I am confident I can hit my mini-goal/75lbs lost milestone this month. That’s my plan! I don’t have any specific May goals beyond this, oh, except to get new awesome insoles to run outside again 🙂
What are everyone’s plans for May? Anyone planning to get outside more with the nicer weather slowly surfacing?
