One down two to go :)

I finally ran 30 minutes in a row :)    I didn't break any running records with it being so humid but I was definitely the sweatiest I have ever been. I ran around midnight and it was still 33C with humidity!  (for my American friends that equals to around 93F)  
I weighed in yesterday with a loss of 0.8 pounds :)   After the week I had I will take it!     For the month of June I  have lost 3.8 pounds for a total of 21.7  pounds since I started back in April. 
I am so happy I  decided to give myself another chance at losing this weight.   If I hadn't summer clothes would have been a nightmare!  In March all my clothes were getting super tight and now they are fitting much better.  Even my underwear and bras are getting too loose.   When I started this weight loss journey (over three years ago)   I bought a pair of size 16 jeans they were super tight but at the time I thought I would lose enough weight to fit into them.  Well that never happened I plateau for two years then gained weight this winter.   This week I decided to try them on  I still have some muffin top but they fit better then they ever did before!    I was also looking through my phone and I came across a picture of myself from March before I started WW and I took a picture of myself in the size 16 jeans.  Here's a side by side picture.  What do you think?  Do you see a difference?   Eating less and running has really changed the shape of my body. 
Their are still rolls but less of them lol

Last week's workouts

    What a great sport you've taken up , running , it's free and healthy. Next treat on your list should be a well fitness pair of running shoes. Mom Q.

  3. Yes, I can see a difference in the two pictures. I know it can sometimes be hard for us to see and notice a weight loss but pictures don't lie. You look great! Keep up all the hard work.

  4. You are looking great--I can totally see the difference!!

  5. I read this quote this morning and thought of you. "Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are part of your history, but not part of your destiny"MomQ
