Check in Day:)

Just wanted to check in with some of you concerning my weight loss. I started this journey 166 days ago on Nov. 9, 20009. And I have only missed 17 days. I like that. It has been wonderful, miserable, easy, hard, fun, depressing, rewarding, and incredible. I started this new life style in hopes of just loosing all kinds of weight. I have lost 13-14 lbs. to date. I started off weighing 172. So sad. And now I am in the 150's. I have learned so much in the past 5 1/2 months. Things like:
I really enjoy working out
I can run....
I hate to miss a day
I have endurance
I have ankles now
I can see parts of me I like
I really like myself

I could probably keep going but will save some for another time. I used to tease my sister who is a size 2 soaking wet. That she was jealous of me being a size 1-2. but my numbers were together as 12:( We would all laugh. but I really wasn't happy being the chubby girl. I have a long way to go, but I AM GETTING THERE. And for me that is what counts right now. I am OK with it taking me a while. Because I no that I am sticking to it this time. I am working hard, and enjoying the fruit of my labor. And the fruit is that I have lost almost 3 inches in my waist. Inches all over my body, and I just feel so good. I don't have to take a nap to make it through the day anymore. And the cloud of depression that liked to follow me is not there as many days. I like to push myself to do new things. I am challenging myself and it feels good. I sure hope no one takes this as bragging. that is not my heart at all. Just want to let you all in on how I am doing on this life long journey. And if you are wondering if I have ever fallen off the wagon? The answer is yes. But I get right back on. Sure hope this encourages some one to get moving:))

You go girl! You really inspire me.

I've been working out a lot more lately too! The other day I came to the realization that I used to say to myself "I'm just not a runner" and it was such a mental block, because the truth is I like to run now (no super long distances yet, but a mile or two;).

Good job Vicki! Very inspirational post. I was wondering how much weight or inches you had lost.

I <3 running but haven't been for quite some time...but I think you just inspired me to put those new running shoes I got a few months ago--BACK ON! ;-)
