Mini-Goals - Just wanna share a few milestones!

I reached the 1/3 mark to my ultimate goal of 180 lbs. Over 60 lost!

I started running, I always wanted to be a runner! Began with c25k in August when I was still over 300 lbs. Did my 1st 5k race last month and another last weekend. This week for the 1st time I ran 10k. Not an official race, just on my own. I can't believe I ran 6.3 miles!

And since June 2012 I've lost 4 clothing sizes and over 50 inches from all over my body.

I still have a long way to go but my progress is so encouraging. Of course I'm looking forward to my goal, but I'm also enjoying myself along the way. I wish I had made these lifestyle changes so much sooner!

WOW! You are an inspiration to me because I started a lot further along in the 300s and am just getting to the point where I can walk on the treadmill for 2 8 minute sessions. To think that when I lose another 70 pounds that I'll be able to at least walk a lot further just seems impossible. Thanks so much for sharing and congratulations!

Great job!!! :cheer2:

Awesome on the 5k and 10k!! :carrot: It feels incredible doesn't it? To know that you did the one thing you thought you couldn't?

Thanks ladies, it does feel wonderful! It would've been unfathomable to me when I started last June that I would've come so far. Running over six miles straight didn't seem possible. 7 months ago I couldn't run for 2 minutes.

Betsy- I find the treadmill harder, so you are doing awesome. Keep up the good work!

Wow u are truly in inspiration to me, I really envy your ability to have run that 10 k. I don't think at any weight have I been able to run more than 2 miles. Congrats on the weight loss from one chubby girl to another !
