Getting There…

pict4057The old saying…slow and steady wins the race is a good way to explain weight loss.  However, in my case, I’m not happy with this progress.  After my pregnancy 7 months ago, I weighed about 190 pounds.  I now way around 171.  I say around 171 because as many of you know, weight fluctuates daily.  I do suggest only weighing yourself once per week or even per month.  I had my husband hide the scale because during weight loss you could become obsessed with the scale.  I measure myself monthly and take pictures just to make sure that I’m on track even though the scale doesn’t move as fast as I would like. 

I am finally into a size 12, which is great, however my goal is a siz 6.  My waist is now a 34 – at the smalles point — 36 around the belly.  I want to be 29 and 31 around the belly…I have a long way to go. 

I am currently training for a 10K race for diabetes in May and have joined the running room.  I ran my first 8K last week and that was really hard.  I am trying to weight train 4 days per week however, that has not really been happening which is the reason for my slow weight loss. 

My diet is good…well sort of!  I am eating clean, and should practice what I preach and eat more.  I have a hard time eating in the morning and that is the most important meal of the day.  I do eat every 3 hours and I am eating very clean.  Once I up my weight training…the weight will begin to come off and I will keep you posted. 

In order to complete my 10K race in 1 hour, which is my goal, I need to shed at least another 10 pounds.  The extra weight is no doubt slowing me down. 

I am in the process of finding a gym to train in with specialty full-body conditioning programs.  When I find one, I will update you often on my progress with that gym or trainer. 

In the meantime, here is a picture of my latest success.
