...I ran 12 miles today. When I started running in January in the 180s I could barely run 1 mile. I've worked out through my weight loss, but I really wasn't comfortable running until I got under 200 lbs. I used to run a little when I was younger but nothing serious. Now I'm a runner. I'm not fast, I dont look spectacular doing it, but I am a runner. It blows my mind that this is where I am 120+ lbs later. It's more than I could ever have dreamed of. I guess this is what disappoints me so much about the fact that I still struggle with binging. I know that weight loss doesn't solve everything, but for me, it's sure solved a lot. Emotionally I still struggle with the same things, but it all seems a little easier when the weight isn't there on top of it all.
Anyway, not to bring down an amazing moment - NSV, oh and I managed to make it through this weekend binge free, PMS and all. So now a taper in my milage and the big half marathon is on the 14th...a half marathon!
