It Was Bound to Happen

Well, it finally happened....I logged my first official gain this week of 1.2 pounds. I'm a bit surprised at how fine I am with it, to be honest with you. I know it was partly because of my splurges last weekend (which I'm still not feeling guilty about) and also due to the fact that my monthly visitor announced her arrival a few hours ago. But whatever the reason, it happened and it is what it is. I have nothing to hang my head about. Who cares if I gained 1.2 pounds in the grand scheme of things? I've still lost 61.8! =)

Over the last few weeks, I've been trying to move my focus to the fitness aspect of my journey rather than just the weight loss itself. I'm running now, which is something I never would have thought I'd be doing. And, I'm doing it at the gym which is huge for me. Actually, just the fact that I'm GOING to the gym is a big step! lol...

Tomorrow I will be doing day 3 of week 4 of the C25K. I will probably be repeating week 4 because I don't feel I'm ready to move on to 8 minutes of straight running. Or maybe I'll try week 5 and then I can decide whether I should go back or not. We'll see in the morning I guess.

I plan on uploading new pics on Monday. I would do them tomorrow, but I have issues getting pics to upload on this site from my home computer. Rather than making myself cranky, I'll wait and do it at work. Shhhh.... So check back in a couple of days and promise not to call me "four eyes" when you see me in my glasses! ; ) Just focus your attention to my jazzy handbag instead!

I'm sure with all your hard work that the gain will turn to a loss very soon!

And you're right - you HAVE lost over 61 pounds which is truly amazing and quite inspirational!!

You are so right to focus on the overall picture. I've had several gains ~ almost always around "that" time of month ~ some easier to handle than others.

I can't wait to see the new pics! You are truly an inspiration!

What a great attitude! You're so right that we should focus on the big picture... and you're doing great!
