I'm heading out the door but wanted to give you a quick update...
I weighed yesterday and am down "only" 2 lbs. I was really hoping to reach 260, so I could celebrate 100 lbs lost... next week?!
I had an awesome experience at the gym the other day. I hadn't been on a treadmill in a long time... before summer, I believe. I decided to hop on the other day and ran for 15 minutes at 4.0! I know 4.0 is only a 15 minute mile but I went the whole 15 minutes and it felt good! I didn't feel like dying in the end. I felt awesome! It helps that I was more confident, too. Since the treadmills are in the front row, I always think about how everyone behind is probably watching. ...when you are 300+ lbs trying to run on a treadmill... it can be quite a scene. I felt much more comfortable and even went back the next day for another run! :) I think, instead of raising the speed, I'm going to increase the distance. I plan to work up to 3.5 miles and then slowly work on increasing my speed. Right now, I'm heading out the door for a hike with my friend Kylee. Last week we went and we jogged 2 different times... and it was a decent distance, too! I took Sookie (my dog). It was awesome going up hills because I think she was kinda pulling me along! Today, I'm going to take Zoey (my other dog). I will take my camera and get some pictures! Also, I NEED to get some updated pictures of my progress!
