Keep on truckin'
Tuesday, May 05, 2009
So I've lost about 50 Lbs at this point and am happy to see the progress. I've been stuck on 137 for most of the month but the idea of seeing my "big break" is keeping me going. I really want to lose those last 20 Lbs or so by the end of May or beginning of June. For inspiration I've bought myself two adorable bikinis and hung them on the back of my door. Even if I don't see those numbers budge I'm going to keep pounding it at the gym and pushing harder each week. Never in my life have I been able to wear a bikini and I would love to rock one this summer! I think keeping my little accomplishments in sight and not beating myself up over every little slip has really kept me going this year. Speaking of life's little accomplishments, I RAN yesterday! I haven't been able to run in ages. I gave myself a hesitant 5 min goal and voila! lasted 25 minutes longer than expected, 30 mins total. I still did my regular Elliptical set but really got enjoyment out of the fact that I could run. I'll be using the treadmill this week to try to break this blasted plateau! Thank you SO much to those of you who've lent some GREAT advice and inspiration! This site has kept me going more than I can say.
