I am slowly but surely making progress. I have been very discouraged in the last month. The scale has slowed way down and I have been in the 170’s for about a month. Regardless of what the scale is doing I have continued making progress in other areas. My strength and endurance keep increasing and my body is shrinking. I tried on some clothes this past weekend and realized I can successfully wear a size 10 and I was able to put on a size 30 in a pair of Miss Me jeans. They are fancy jeans that in the past I have never even been able to try on. They didn’t make them big enough for me.

¬†I have decided to take a break from the diet plan I was doing with Tirzah. While I agree and support everything about the plan, I haven’t been seeing the result like I was¬†counting my calories. For 7 months I have been encouraged by numbers falling off the scale. My progress for the rest of my journey will be slow. I only have 24 pounds to go. These last 20 pounds will be the hardest. I am going back to a 1200 calories diet. I don’t follow a specific meal plan I just try to make wise choices.

Summer has proven to be the hardest struggle for me. The kids are home and routines are hard to follow. I have managed to stay on track with marathon training. We run 14 miles today and will continue to increase weekly until we run a full 26.2 on September 18th! I am excited and terrified. I seen a workout shirt yesterday that said “until nothing is left” I feel like I work that hard every day and it is especially true in my long runs. I love what my body can accomplish and I am going to keep pushing!
