Motivational Monday - 9/17/12

Well! I sure can talk the talk, and I sure can inspire and motivate people....but I've had a rough time walking the walk lately.

On my "weigh-in's" page (link up top), the last weight recorded was 348 lbs on 5/19. *sigh* On 9/8, I weighed in at 347 as the "starting weight" for my new challenge. Guess I stalled out a bit, huh? Lost a whole pound in just under 4 months. I'm ashamed to even type that...

However, I'm now involved in two different challenges, one of which is an elimination challenge, and I'm really, REALLY losing is NOT an option. Seriously, I'm right up there with Monica as far as needing to win, lol. Have you guys seen this episode?

My unofficial weight as of this morning was 345. Lost two pounds! I know that's not much, but it's a start. In the past 4 months, I've dislocated my hip joint, celebrated my 30th birthday, and gone on vacation. All in all, I guess I can't be too disappointed that I even maintained. But I am! I don't want to BE that person. I don't want to be stagnant in my weight loss. I want to accomplish things!!!

The one thing I'm MOST proud of is that I actually walked a 5k for the very first time on 9/11!!! (see pic above, lol) After I was done, I had the worst blisters on my feet under my toes, so I've had to let those heal, but I'll be going to the gym to do 1-2 miles Tues/Wed/Thurs of this week, and then me and Destinee are walking a 5k again this Sunday. Our ACTUAL Color Me Rad 5k is next Sat, 9/29! I'm so excited!!!

Anyway, I suppose that's it for now, but I haven't blogged in a WHILE, so I wanted to get back on track! :) I push myself more when I know people are watching, haha.
