I keep running...

Last week I started back down the path marked weight loss again. I've got about 35 pounds to lose again. Oddly 20 of it isn't baby weight, its post baby weight. I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I have gained back extra weight after having Jack. But I did. I got really weak from being on bed rest for over two months. I got discouraged, whenever I tried to work out. I went from running 4 miles to getting hopelessly winded doing the laundry. So I gave up. And I gave up again, and again. But this time I can't let myself give up. I can't do it. Last week I ran a mile for the first time since before I was pregnant. It felt amazing. (Afterwards.)
I lost a pound last week. I was hoping for more but a pound is okay. This week I've set my mind to lose more than that.



I'm following this to get back into running.

10 Week training schedule.

Hello - here from ICLW! I too have just started to excercise in an attempt to lose some weight as well! I too have to say as much as I do not like to exercise, it felt good afterwards!! I wish you the best!

Happy ICLW!

Good luck with your weight loss! It's such a hard daunting task (for me at least). And running... you're amazing! I am not a runner.

I think a pound a week is a good, realistic, long-term weight loss goal that you can stick with! Way to go on choosing to NOT give up on yourself today!
