In the past ten years I have been up (240) and down (135) the scale time and again. This time I am on the 'up' side of the scale. I want to loose the weight. I figure the humiliation of putting this on the internet and the friends that I have told of this to hold me accountable just might make this happen. It is going to take a lot of encouragement and support. Not to mention the hard work on my part. Follow my struggle here.

i drank the kool-aid

At this point I have hit the 1/2 way mark in my training for the St Paddys Day run Mar 13.

This past Saturday I participated in the Poker Run. I did just a little shy of a 5K and felt really good about it. Landed a cool running skirt and just had a good time running in frigid temps! The hubbs went along to run too but for some reason he ran the full 5 miles after a few months of not running... I think he is still recovering from overdoing it.

And you wanna know the crazy thing? I think I like running! I wish I had figured that out at a earlier age! Running with a group that is on my level really helps me enjoy running. Each time we have ran I can see very small improvements in my endurance.

As for my weight - ugh I can see no friggin change but I do feel like my clothes are fitting better. Hopefully the rest will happen soon! I want to be a size 10 again this summer!

I know, patience grasshopper......

I really am enjoying myself thus far. I think Saturday AM it was like 29F. The key is layers. I was weraing my normal running gear under a pair of sweats!
