Weekly Weigh In: Another Loss!

I lost one pound this week, which puts me at .4 pounds away from reaching 40 pounds lost. That is so frustrating! One thing hit me as I updated my ticker... you mean I'm TEN pounds away from hitting that 50 pound mark? My HALF WAY mark??? That is awesome. If I was a bit more awake, I'd be smiling.

Today, if the weather cooperates (tomorrow if it doesn't), I'm going to start the Couch to 5K program. I've really wanted to start jogging for a while now, and I think I'm at the point physically and mentally that I can do it. However, I don't want to get frustrated with myself that I can't jog for 20 minutes straight on the day that I decide to start. Couch to 5K takes you from being a non-jogger to being a 5K jogger in nine weeks. I'm super excited, not only to be jogging, but to be on a training plan that would allow me to take part in some 5Ks in the fall. That is, only if they're somewhere flat. There is this killer triathalon that you have to jog uphill. Kudos to you who can do it, but I'm a beginner here.

I know what you mean about coming so close! When I was nearing my 10% goal, I missed it by .2 one week! I wanted to say to my leader, "can I take my bra off underneath my shirt to see if that makes a difference??" lol... but I didn't. You'll get it next week.

Congrats on your success so far! And good luck with the Couch to 5K can do it!

Have a great week and hit that 40-pound mark!

Yay!!! You're soooo close to the 50 pound mark! It always seems like when a major milestone comes up (like your 10% or 50 pounds or things like that) you're always 0.something away. It's frustrating and you want to ask if you can just take something off to get to But it's better to just suck it up and really hit the number the following week. Good luck!!! oqjoh

Congrats! 10 pounds does not seem that far away. I always see weight loss at about 10 pounds at a time. Even when I stand on the scale, I always imagine what it'll be like to see myself 10 pounds lighter.
