Do you know, i'm jsut now internalizing that i'm starting this whole couch to 5k thing almost 2 years to the day later 8^O
So i just got out there and did session 2 of week one today.
Easy peasy :D
And guess what!? Today was weigh-in and.... I hit goal :D (there are smaller attainable goals set up on "my plan" to help you stay motivated along the way). The first goal that they suggest, and that i went with, is to lose 5 % of your starting weight. For me, that was 7 pounds. And i did it :D !!!!! WOOTWOOT!!!!!!!!!!
My new goal was suggested for me today : - 10 % of my starting weight. So i accepted that as thenext step in my weight loss journey. When i get to -10% i will be just into the healthy weight zone for my height, build, gender, age :D In other words i will officially be no longer overweight :D But my real goal is to lose a little more (118 pounds = 53.5 k) to be in the middle of the healthy weight zone instead of at the upper end of it.
If i keep up the same rythm of weight loss, i can get to -10 % by mid-july.
and my treat to myself when i get down to - 10 %... I'm chopping off my hair and going platinum again :D or maybe a firey rusty color. I have over a month to decide :D
hey, how about some votes :D rust or platinum.
here's some older pics to help you decide :
These pictures range from jan to june 2008 (the blond is later in the year) which is the last time i managed to lose so much weight - but this weight loss was depression induced (right after i found out DH had been cheating on me, remember that? i do :^P )
but i really felt super confident in myself when i had my hair like that! really!!!! but maybe it was the wieght more than the hair? who knows, i just remember feeling good about my self. actually, it might have been the prozac roflol...
