Something Exciting Happened and Some Exciting News...

Quick post to share something wonderful that happened this week and also to make a really exciting announcement.

Yesterday was weigh-in day at Weight Watchers. It had been 2 weeks since I had been there because I was fighting a really nasty chest cold last week. It had also been a while since I had lost any weight. So yesterday I went in and weighed in at 180.0!!!!! Do you know what this means? This means that after 12 years I am finally NO LONGER OBESE!!!

Let me tell you, I was so happy to see that number! I clapped and said "I'm overweight!!!" At this point my WW leader looked at me like I had 3 heads but then I explained to her that I was just so happy to get out of the obese range after being there for over a decade. She seemed to understand that I wasn't completely insand at that point, lol. I also got my 35 lb star yesterday since I've lost just over 35 lb since I joined in September.

Now on to my exciting announcement!

As you know, my (first) ultimate goal has been to run a half marathon. I am signed up for the Rock 'N Roll Half Marathon in October and had been planning on that being my first half...until about 2 days ago...

There is a local Half Marathon that really appeals to me because it's much smaller and I think it would be a good first one as opposed to the RnR, which is huge. So now my first Half Marathon is going to be on MAY 20th!!! That's right, in 8 WEEKS I will be doing my first HALF MARATHON!!!!!

Ok, so maybe I am completely insane after all... :-P


  1. I just got caught up on the entire blog...I liked reading about your progress! I didn't realize you haven't been running very long! I want to let you know I consider you a role model. :)

    1. Wow, thank you! That really means a lot! :-)
