Much Bigger Victory

Well, it finally happened... I think when I get frustrated about something I should just jump on my blog and kvetch about it incessantly. Just kidding... I wouldn't want to subject everyone to that kind of torture, still all of my complaining last week seems to have finally budged my weight loss in the right direction. I finally broke the plateau I'd been struggling with for a few weeks.

What's even better is that as of yesterday I hit a pretty major milestone... 30% of my total body weight lost. Yahoo! Although, I must admit that it seems kind of surreal to think about. That's nearly 1/3 of what used to be me just gone... poof into thin air... okay, maybe not exactly "poof" but you know what I mean. There's a full third of me that no longer exists. And I must admit it's the third of me that I don't miss... not even a little bit! LOL!

Anyway, I hope everyone is hanging in with their workouts through the summer. Ours has finally kicked into high gear here in the Pacific NW, including some nasty humidity the last couple of days, which has made for some pretty miserable workouts, but I've been trying to persist. However, as you will see from today's numbers, the heat is definitely impacting my pace... but then it's supposed to... working out at full capacity during the heat and humidity is just a recipe for disaster.

Stay cool!

Congrats!

And you've been running outside in this weather. In my book, any pace is acceptable.
