Exciting things are happening for me, and I just HAVE to share. I have been battling weight and working hard for a long time. I started CrossFit in July and have worked really hard. I didn't train as much for my half marathon last week as I should, and if I had, I would likely be much smaller by now, but I also have to get the food part working, or the rest of it will all be in vain.
I have to rest my foot for another week, doctor's orders, but then it is ON! Running and CrossFit! Moving my CrossFit workouts to the mornings (only way I can get to go 5x/week) and running 2 evenings/week, and on Saturday or Sunday.
On January 1st this year, I weighed 269 pounds. This morning, I got on the scale and it said 250.4 pounds. Tomorrow will mark 9 weeks since January 1st, and I am down nearly 20 pounds. That's a little over 2 pounds/week. If I can keep this pace up, I am on track to lose about 100 pounds this year. That would put me almost exactly at my high school graduation weight, but much more fit than I was back in the day. I weighed 165 pounds, but I was not even remotely fit back then....I will be now. I am about to kiss the 250's good-bye for the rest of my life! It is finally happening.
