The Weight is Over

I have gotten the "OK" from my OB to resume losing weight. YAY!

I have also gotten her "OK" to continue my right-carb diet. This is eating the right carbs (fruit, whole-grain bread, vegetables, etc.) instead of eliminating them all together.

SO - this means that my weight-loss tracker is now back up on the side bar. Every Sunday, I will weigh myself and update with how much weight has been lost.

Yes, it is embarrassing having that weight-loss tracker over there. It's exposing a side of myself that is quite a sensitive subject, and I feel like I'm putting it all out there for everyone to see. But it's accountability, you know? Truth be told, it's really for me...and not you. =)

I'll go to Curves 3 times a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday), and walk the other 2-3 evenings (sometimes Friday will be eliminated due to a date).

LONG TERM GOAL: I'm saying it now. Within the next couple of years, I WILL RUN A HALF MARATHON. Watch me.

go amber! loosing weight is so hard, but you can do it. doing half marathon is a great goal. increase your mileage by 10% each week (ie: if you are doing 5 miles a week go to 5.5 miles the next week) and this will healp you build endurance without getting injured. good luck!
