Was a pretty good weekend. I haven't been eating my best (holiday week, vacation, etc.) but I kept the running up. Didn't run yesterday, but I did work 4 games in a tournament (USSSA 12U Class B state championships) in some pretty nasty heat. Had a good run tonight. Not as far as I've been going, but at a faster pace.

Like PWCorgi, I'm loving being active. Sure, I'm watching the scale, but that is not my only indicator at this point.

I need more motivation to work out more. I've been on a plateau for the past few weeks and I'd like to get things moving again.

On a positive note? When I look in the mirror, these days, "fat" is not the first thing I notice about myself. I took these in the fitting room at work (I don't own a full length mirror) and I wish I had a before picture to share, because for the first time I'm noticing a big difference.

Well, RD, you answered your own dilemma there The scale may not show it, but you noticed changes in your body. Weight fluctuates, stays firm at one stubborn scale number and sometimes goes up even though you're doing the right things. Keep working hard (it's a "work"out, not a "rest"out) and don't give up.

Saw this on theberry this morning. Seemed appropriate for your specific situation:

I am finding that I absolutely love being active
Uhm, you mean that my meal option wasn't healthy?! HOW DARE YOU! :P

I also loved the 4th! Except I walked in a parade instead of playing ultimate frisbee!

Just got back from my 2.2 mile run around town. Shaved over 2 minutes off my time. Dinner is in the oven, then a relaxing evening.

I just wanted to pop in this thread and tell you guys you're doing such a great job with this, and it's really, really inspirational. I've never needed to/tried to lose weight, but it's so encouraging to see how well you guys stick with it through the ups and downs and make progress and stay motivated.

Trying to mentally prepare myself for getting my butt kicked again at the gym. At least it's not just me. My friend in doing this with says she has never been so sore in her life. I know in the end I'll be glad for doing this though.

4 lbs lost last week.

Im a little scared since I'm so out of shape and this really judgmental person I know told me they're going to the gym too. Unfortunately we work out in the middle of the room and people can watch it all. I get self conscious about that.
