So today, I went for my first longish run/walk outside in at least a year (been doing between 2-3 miles, but today I pushed myself to do 5 because I had the time). I had a huge victory: I was able to jog all the way up this huge hill without having to stop to walk! (although I was going pretty slow--might have been quicker if I HAD walked, lol!). I've always had to walk part of it before, even when I was running outside religiously. I gained a couple of pounds this week, and have been a bit bummed out, so it felt good to remind myself that those couple of pounds that I gain and lose due to water weight and whatnot aren't what matter: it's my overall health and what my body can do that matter most!

Thanks, Twinklelashes! I think focusing on a weight range is a good idea! You'll get there, and congrats on reaching your goal! - Spoonful_O_Sugar   550.5 #321 10-9-11 6:51AM Like  Reply
Oh, a funny thing to share with you all...as I was running, the sun was low behind me. My shadow looked like my bottom half was 3x the size of my top half--my hips looked huge! If that isn't motivating, I don't know what is, lol! - Spoonful_O_Sugar   550.5 #321 10-9-11 7:13AM Like  Reply

Yay SoS! There's a hill in the park I walk at everyday. When I was at my heaviest earlier this year, I'd have to stop and rest half way up. I could tell when my weight loss was starting to "count" when I could walk up without getting winded. I still use that hill as a measurement (although now it's my dog that doesn't want to run!). And you're right...those accomplishments matter, and mean more in the long run than a pound here and there. - msdizmaui   632.2 #270 10-10-11 1:24AM Like  Reply
@twinkle: if I owned a boutique, I would def have soft lighting and clothes sized smaller than they actually are (I.e.: a "6" would be labelled "4")! @MDM: the weight loss does make a difference, doesn't it? Think of how heavy a ten pound dumbell is: if you lose just 10 pounds, your body is carrying A LOT less weight with each movement! - Spoonful_O_Sugar   550.5 #321 10-10-11 7:00AM Like  Reply
