Quick update

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!


  1. Congrats on your weight loss. Keep up the hard work! It's great to see that you're halfway done with your goal. One thing I’ve found to be extremely helpful and useful as a supplement to my current diet/exercise plan is Fullbar ( Their products (Fullbar shakes) have helped me lose weight and learn how to maintain that weight-loss.

  2. When I was working on my weight loss I found a lot of interesting info on Training programms, diets, and other tips for athletes as well as for people who visit gym occasionally (just like me). I've read about dietary supplements, which helped me get enough nutrition without overeating and keep my body energized. Now losing weight is much easier for me.
