Weigh In Day!

Down 0.4 lb for a total of 46.8 lbs!  Not a huge loss but a loss just the same.  I dusted off my treadmill this week at home.  It's in our basement which is a big mess, so this weekend I want to attempt to clean it out a bit so it's not such a nightmare to go down and use it.  I walked on it Thursday night and even did a bit of running.  Not much but just a few minutes at a time.  My ankle seemed to tolerate it pretty good.  I was in a bit of a funk last night (after a crappy day at work!!!!) so I decided to go for another walk on it.  I think the extra cardio will definitely help and even though the weather has been gorgeous here I think we all know what is coming whether we like it or NOT!  I'm a fair weather walker so once the snow and ice come, I will be inside at the gym or on the treadmill.  I'm glad I didn't end up selling it like I thought about so many times.  I also walked on my lunch break 2 days this week.  It's so pretty right now with all the fall leaves and I work at the University so it's great.  I just do a huge circle of campus and it takes around 40 minutes.  So I think with all my favorite classes at the gym and adding some extra cardio it will help get this weight off!  I have struggled recently with my rate of weight loss.  I feel like it's just going too slow.  When I went to write this post I had a look at the graph, my before picture and my ticker and I'm feeling better.  I have come a long way since January I need to remind myself of this.

I got this from pinterest.  Yes I am obsessed.

Sometimes you just have to look at the big picture in order to keep moving forward - and remember that all of these "small" losses really do add up. You're doing GREAT, Kim!

Thanks Shelley! It's hard went so fast at the beginning and now it has really slowed down. Oh well, I WILL get there.
