This morning I woke up tired. (In fact- last Monday I was feeling pretty tired too! I got up...ate a bit and then fell asleep on the sofa before having to go to work!)

But instead of slipping into bed, I slipped into my running shoes. As I walked into the street, I stumbled and fell. I skinned up my knees and right hand. But in that moment, I decided that I was tired of being tired. I was sick of hearing my own excuses. I was annoyed with waiting for the perfect conditions.

So I ran...I ran with bloodied knees and scrapes on my hand. And by ran...I mean...I don't know how to describe it....I walk faster then I "run." It's like I'm running in slow motion. I'm only doing the C25K W1D1 intervals, but it's difficult. Sometimes my lungs hurt and other times I feel like I'm putting too much pressure on my shins. I question if I'm even able to be a runner. Maybe I'm not cut out of for it...

But I continued on, because I felt as if each step took me farther away from excuses and brought me closer to the woman I see in my daydreams.

I put away my scale on Friday. I think I'm getting comfortable with relying on the scale as a crutch.... "Well...I'm doing pretty darn good on the scale. So I don't really have to push myself." No longer. I'd like everyday to be consciously progressively more healthy then the last.

How was everyone's Monday? What do you have going on in the week ahead? Any obstacles?

Hello. Been in the 2-teens for a few weeks now... Floating at 215 hopefully 214 in the morning. Although I went pretty hard int he gym today so I am expecting to hold a little weight until my rest day.

Today was an interesting day. 2 presentations at school, a nice long 2 hours gym session and now I am relaxed which I usually am not at this time.

Think I'll go to bed early tonight. Got work, another long day in the gym and some assignments to finish for the end of the semester.

Howdy everyone...been on rugby tour this weekend. Non-stop excessive drinking (including a morning shot) and terrible eating, but weight's not too bad. No movement on the ticker, but have lost a little weight. Back on the bandwagon today. I didn't actually play that much rugby, but I guess I was pretty active the whole time. We went paintballing. I've got some ridiculous bruises.

I'm a little shaky still this morning, but starting to recover.

Hey Guys, thanks for taking the plunge and starting the new thread Lunar...I liked your post about your run earlier. It flowed like good prose.

I figured out that the source of my slight gain was not the alcohol from saturday but the dreaded TOM. At least that explains a lot...like my bad attitude, insane cravings for sugar, and feeling like I'm 5 million pounds. Sorry for the guys that read this thread...but I'm sure you're used to it from the women in your life. Anywho, I at least lost .2 today and didn't go up anymore, so I'll take it. It's a new day, am I right?

Hope it's a beautiful one for all of you

Hope everyone has a great day.

Still firmly in the 2-ohs though I have been fluctuating a bit. My last final is Thursday and I couldn't be more excited! We'll be leaving for California in two weeks to see my sister graduate! I still plan on exercising every day of my vacation but we'll see how I do with my eating.

immaculte and jay- what are you getting your degrees in? I just started my Masters of Science in Management this quarter. I'm finding it difficult to balance everything...especially cooking. I felt like last week I was a bit careless, because my schedule was all messed up.


Leben, TOM bothers me. So does OTOM. I'm slowly learning to let go of my frustration around it. I can gain up to 6 pounds around those times. GR.

I hear you on this one!! However- I'm not quite sure what my weight is.

It's weird not weighing daily. The scale is a huge motivator. So without it- motivation needs to come from something else. Probably something internally. Not having the comfort of the scale is scary. Focus really needs to fully transition to maintaining a healthier lifestyle. This makes for an interesting turn in my journey.

Hi all! New here. I'm at 203. Is this the right thread or is there a 00s thread? It will probably take me a few weeks to get to 199, so I'm happy to be here too. Thanks!

And the problem with that is.....?

It don't mean jack for weight loss.

I can't say I like the new thread (let's go over 500!) but I am rocking the two-teens! With or without Elvis & Beth.
