E has breast cancer. I don't know when I'll be back.

So I read an article on Huffington Post at the beginning of the week about losing weight in an age where the bigger the food the better. They asked people to send in their stories and they PICKED ME! They put me in a slideshow with 4 other people with weight loss stories. :D
I may not be at the finish line yet but I'm not giving up, no way no how.

I've also decided that once E gets done with her marathon training that we're gonna look into doing personal training at the gym. I honestly think that's the push I need to lose these final 50 lbs.

Me and E did the St. Petersburg Women's Half Marathon on Sunday and it was amazing. E blew through it at 3 hrs. 15 mins. and I came in at 3 hrs. 59 mins. That's what happens when you have to take 2 pee breaks that end up lasting 7 minutes a piece trying to get into the port o potties. Also the last three miles I kinda wandered and chatted with people. My two goals going in to this thing was to FINISH and finish under 4 hrs. which I did both. I had a BLAST and can't wait to do it again!

I'm so proud. E is training with Team in Training to run the Disney Marathon in Jan. She's doing this not just to help find a cure for blood cancers but to take control of her own health.
Here's her donation page, any little thing will help even just reposting the link for others to see.

Well I'm not pregnant, which I didn't think I would be but I am 6 lbs. heavier than I was two weeks ago. I'm back up to 207. This is not good. I'm gonna struggle with weight for the rest of my life no matter what I do until I learn how to gain some control. I looked in the mirror over the past two weeks and noticed my face looked fat, "Oh I'm swollen, maybe I'm pregnant" and various other excuses. Yeah I'm swollen alright but it's because I let stress get the better of me and ate my way through my two week wait and not once went to the gym.
We're going to Tampa for the weekend with friends and I will try my hardest to keep my eating in check but come Monday I'm busting it down at the gym. I put 6 lbs. on in two weeks and if I work hard enough I can easily lose 6 lbs. in two weeks.
We're not trying again until either Sept or Oct and by then I will have lost the remaining weight to be at 190 or lower.
I can't wait for it to get cool again so I can drop my gym membership and do what I love most which is walking at lunch and walking after work outside. I hate the gym but unfortunately if you want to lose any weight during the summer in Florida you've either gotta have gym equipment or have a gym membership.
I can do this. I've hit bumps before and got back on track. Lesson learned.

Well I know I still have 6 days left but I'm almost 100% that I'm totally NOT pregnant. Once next Monday comes I'm gonna start doing the C25K again and hopefully lose some more weight before trying again in August. Here's to the last 11 lbs. I need to lose and praying to gain them back with a baby starting in August.

Well I'm sitting at 201 AND the very middle of our first two week wait to see if we're pregnant. I was really stressing out this week about what I was eating and wanting to lose weight. Then I realized that HELLO I was already stressed enough and didn't need to add on to it. So I'm still hitting the gym but I'm not worried too much about what I'm eating, except making sure there's no gluten.
Am I pregnant? Probably not but I won't know for another 10 days. Until then I'll relax enjoy the thought that I am and once I get the results I'll go from there.
If I'm not I think I'm gonna kick the weight loss into high gear for the rest of the summer then start trying again once the fall comes.
