Stick with it Saturday

Today is Stick with it Saturday  I had a good week. I finally saw the scale move again. I am up to 83 lbs lost.  It is amazing to me how motivating it is to keep seeing that scale move.  I get so easily discouraged when I hit a short plateau (even though I know better).  I earned my 10% keychain at Weight Watchers this week.  I joined in late April I believe, so I lost 10% of what I weighed when I started.  Now I have to set some new goals.  I have some milestones coming up that I'll share about when I reach them.

Last week I said I thought I might sign up for my first 5K which I did right after I posted.  I will run in my first 5K race next Saturday.  This morning I was supposed to go on a long run but I woke up with a sore throat and didn't think I was up to it.  I decided I would just run 3.1 to see what my time would be.  I hadn't done that in a long time.  I ran the first two miles in 26:00 which is the fastest I ever ran the 2 miles on that route...but I got a stitch in my side and had to slow it down for the remainder of the run.  I ran the whole course in 40:18.  My goal is to finish in under 40 minutes next week.  I've had some leg pain this week so I'm nervous that between leg pain and getting a stitch I won't  have a good run, but I really want to try.

Goal for the week: stick to the plan!

You are doing a fabulous job! I am glad the WW thing is working for you so well. I sent your pens out today, so be watching for them. Be sure to head back my way and comment. :D

WOW! That is some fantastic weight loss you have there!!!

Keep up the hard work! I am sure you will reach your goal. You have a great attitude that even though you "felt down" you still did a little bit... instead of like me. I am doing nothing. I may have to change my plans today after all. Would be better if I did.

Thanks for the inspiration!
Take care,
