I've had an upset stomach all last night and all day today. I really hope this is just a 24 hour thing, because I have a 5k race tomorrow. Keeping my fingers crossed.

When Paul came home from work today, he said "I was thinking about it today, and I'm not going to be able to run 3 miles after working all day!" He's just trying to make excuses for when I do better than him ;)

I watched The Biggest Loser Finale tonight and it helped me put my weight loss in perspective. Since October, I have lost 27.33% of my body weight. That is not far off from what the contestants have done in about a month more while being on the Biggest Loser Ranch! I feel like they all look so much farther along than me though...

I just feel discouraged sometimes. I don't know why, because I'm losing weight, but I've lost 55lbs and I still feel enormous! I'm just having a hard time seeing the big picture right now.

I'm also having a hard time with my running journey as well. I still feel so slow! I feel like I'm nowhere near prepared to run a 10k in 5 weeks! I just try to believe that I'll get there, but it's hard.

  1. 55lbs is so much!!! Sometimes, the changes your body makes aren't always on the outside, but on the inside instead. Just think of how much better the inside of you body can do its job without having that extra weight on top of it! Have you taken a lot of before/after pictures? It's hard to see the changes to your body, because it's yours and you see it every single day. Sometimes, you just need to look back and see where you started, to see how far you've come!
