Status, Day 31:
SW: 470 TW: 406.0 TWL: 64.0 lbs Lbs to Goal: 181.0
Okay, so the race is on…how ’bout a little inspirational music.
Here’s the deal: I set a goal for myself to be below 400 lbs by Valentine’s day. That gives me 4 days to do it. My weight loss has slowed down again, though not bad by any stretch. I am losing 1-1.2 lbs per day. In 4 days, that will only be roughly five pounds. I got to pull that extra pound out somewhere. I am hoping my body will cooperate.
Between now and then, I am going to bed on time (or early), and making sure I get in all my water. I would exercise, but my right calf and Achilles is not cooperating. Any thought on exercising I can do that will burn calories while I remain stationary? I strained my lower calf/high achilles tendon while walking (even though I stretched). I rested it and thought it was okay. then this morning while walking through the produce section, I felt the sharp twinge of pain again. Any advice would be appreciated. Especially from anyone who may train triathletes….ahem…kimtri??? 😉 .
Anyway, I am really wanting to reach my goal. Being in the three-hundreds again will feel OH, SO GOOD. 399 lbs is only 94 above the level when I ran my first marathon, and only 49 pounds more than my weight when I started training for it. Grant it, I will still be morbidly obese, but I will be in familiar territory. Don’t believe I ran a marathon at 304 lbs?…take a look.
This was actually at my second marathon, and was at about 294 I couldn’t find any pics of Kona…but you get the idea. It serves as a reminder of what lies ahead if I stay on my path. Oh, looking at that pic…that was a 2x shirt and I had it layered over another shirt. that is my mom on the left. We were celebrating her victory over lymphoma as I ran in her honor and to raise money for the leukemia/lymphoma society.
Anyways…4 days…6 pounds. The race is on.
