It's been seven months since I've started this adventure. My kids ask me why I still run, since I look "normal" now. I tell them that I run to feel good, to help me become a better runner, and to help me become a better mom. Also, I don't want to go back. I like the energy that I now have and how my clothes feel.
Yes, I'm a numbers nerd (the engineer in me)
weight 195 lbs 156 lbs
chest 43.5 in 37 in
waist 40.75 in 33.5 in
hips 46.5 in 39.5 in
pant size 18 8 or 10
Wow, I'm sure glad that I did keep track. One of the hardest challenges for myself now is to get my mindset out of my "old size". When I arrived to pick up my packet for my first race, I looked at the t-shirt that I ordered => XL. Fortunately, I was able to exchange it for a medium. A medium!!!!!
What's next? Well, I would say that I am in maintenance mode and fine tuning. I need to do more core workouts to keep my back healthy and to help improve my running. I have been trying to incorporate P90X into my routine.
