2.5 lbs down for last week. Still eating well.

I had a good week last week of eating and working out.  My one mile time trial kicked my butt and made my calves sore for three days.  That was not so pleasurable.  I managed to stay with pretty balanced eating and spaced out my eating well throught out each day.  I lost 2.5 lbs for the week which made me feel good.  I was a confidence builder to be reminded that I do remember how to do this. 🙂 

I also spent all day Saturday and most of Sunday at the Cancer Relay for Life.  I did not eat too much there.  I didn’t really eat healthy but the bottom line of calories in and out was on track.  I managed to run/walk for 2 hrs straight around 12:30 am Sunday morning and did a lot of other walking during Saturday.  It was a great weekend to give of myself for something bigger then me.  I appreciate the apportunity very much to be able to be there. 

I have also decided not to do the 50 miler coming up at the end of this month.  Although I believe I can do it, I am chosing not to because of the pressure/guilt I feel about not really wanting to do it.  That is not healthy for me to be feeling like that about running.  So I will puch my own buttons and test myself in this area.  Heck,………it’s good for me.

    Congratulations on losing the 2.5 lbs. Just keep at it and you’ll reach your target weight. One day at a time and all that…

    I would like to say that your life is very much like my life. I have felt the ‘thin’ victory over and again and somehow all I’d like to do is break free from the history. At 32 years old, I don’t know if that will happen. I do know there’s a difference between pushing yourself to be better; stronger and then there’s a point of just making yourself nuts with it all. It’s a fine balance. I hope we all find it. And thank you so much for writing your story. You have no idea what it means to find others who face this issue. With a pretty face and years since the actual weight loss, I feel like I have some Elephant Man secret going on. Thank you again!

    Great job Jason, and keep up the good work. Some days it takes all the strength I can muster to stay out of the mcdonalds drive-thru.
