So I was on 3FC last year for a while and was doing really well with my weight loss. I went through a rough breakup and was focusing on myself, and saw a loss from 159 to 144! Then the holidays happened and it all went south. At 161 lbs I re-dedicated myself in January (my New Years' Resolution was to become a runner again, so I started C25K) and was doing great! I started dating a great guy (also a runner) in February, and did my first 5K in March. I got back down to 147 lbs and was feeling pretty good. Unfortunately, the new bf and I are lovers of good food and started getting more wrapped up in each other than our fitness goals and in no time I was tipping the scales back at 163
So, here I am again! I've been calorie counting and jogging at least three days a week, and just started adding in strength training at least 2 days a week. I am back down to 154 and just ran 3.45 miles yesterday! I have NEVER been able to do that before. My boyfriend, who was a half-marathon runner, has rededicated himself to getting ready for a marathon coming up this December. I am now focusing on being able to do a 10K, but who knows? By December I may be able to do that half marathon while he does the full :-) I know what I have to do to meet my goals, I just have to keep my motivation high, and I love the support here on 3FC!
