So my last post was in July, well, how time flies! I need to give myself a pat on the back! I faithfully followed the c25k, made it to week 8! I got the flu last week so I took a week off. I am not going to beat myself up about it, what could I do, I was sick! Now that I am feeling better I will start up again. I will do an easy walk today, not to over do it. I did start tracking my calories on livestrong. I have been very good at tracking everything, might have slacked a bit while I was sick, but did my best. I have lost a total of 16 lbs. Not many people noticing, but what do I expect? When you are as overweight as I am, it will take quite a bit for people to notice. I am wearing the same size (18 pants, 2x tops or 22 for tops) but everything is feeling looser. OK, here is the number-227lbs, I started at 243. It has been coming off very slow, and many up and downs, 227 is the lowest I have gone, but 16 days ago I was 227.5 and went back up again. Maybe flu related, maybe my body is getting use to the c25k routine, so I need to mix it up. My next mini goal is to get to 215, so I have 12 lbs to go. This is a way of life, not a diet. I must commit long term! Here's to living healthy!
