Today’s Weight: 177.5
Loss/Gain: – 0.5 lb
Well…I’m glad it’s down and not up. The past few days I have felt the winds of change coming to my life with regards to my weight loss journey. Change for the better. It’s a little nerve wracking to actually admit that on this blog, because admitting means I’ll be held accountable later.
But that’s okay.
I can’t explain why now something is changing when I wouldn’t get with the program in the past. I only know that as I’ve gotten back into running it has been hard for me to keep my calories down and that’s been frustrating for me, because then I’m hovering in my weight instead of losing it.
That was one of my fears of getting back into any type of more intense exercise – I wouldn’t lose weight. I knew I would tone up and get stronger, but I seem to have a problem staying within a calorie budget that allows me to lose weight for more than, oh..a couple days.
However, since the beginning of this year I keep feeling this urgency to get it done. Finish what I’ve started. “More doing and less talking about doing.“, is what I told my friend the other day.
And the past couple of days it feels like it’s clicking. I feel ready to do what it’s going to take to reach a healthy weight of 140 (I’m 5′ 4″). It’s not going to be easy, but it’s like I’m finally listening to those little voices saying, “Do you really need that?” and deciding… No, I don’t.
As we enter into a beautiful spring weekend I submit to you with
much trepidation resolve that I, Leah, am going to finish what I have started. I will become a better runner and I will lose the rest of this weight in the process.
I will no longer dream of success. I will reach success.
Happy Friday and thanks for checking in!
