    Were you ever scared of becoming thin? If so what were those fears? How did you get over them? Now that you are thin do you have any fears and if so would you mind sharing them?

      I did worry about getting thin sometimes but not to much. I have fears now for sure and I will share them

    Yesterday I ran a 10.2 mile Trail Race (2,000 ft of elevation gain) and worked pretty darn hard to finish strong. Today I am super sore — my quads were not used to this particular kind of pounding and I posted a 1 pound gain this morning at weigh in. I was not exactly perfect with my food but I was only over 7.5 points for the week so I did not eat enough to gain 1 lb of fat.

    I read that one can gain 2-4 pounds in water retention when muscles are sore and I sure hope that was the case.

    Do you have any experiences with how some of you hard runs/races have affected your weigh-in’s?

    I’m training for my first 1/2. Like you, I’m an all or nothing kind of person so in the next 9 months I have a couple of 5Ks and 10Ks, possibly a 13K, 3 half marathons and a marathon. I’ve been running shorter races since I started running last year, 11 5Ks, a 4 miler and 2 10Ks (basically every race I could find that was close.) I haven’t lost but about 5 pounds since I started running. In the last 2 months I’ve added strength training and cross training hoping it would jump start my weight loss. I had lost 30 pounds in about 5 months leading up to my decision to start running. I still have 32 to go to hit the top of the mid range of my healthy weight bracket. I can not lose! I have been on this plateau for 10 months. I do not eat fried foods, I try to eat clean, focusing on fruits, veggies, nuts and lean meats. I try to stay away from processed foods. I stay in my calorie range of 1200-1800 calories (high end is usually on run days.) Do you have any words of wisdom???
