Since I could remember I've always had a love/hate relationship with my weight. But it wasn't until 8 years ago and my first pregnancy that it had gotten out of control. I hit 270+ pounds, the biggest I've ever been in my life.

It took me only 3 months to take off 30 pounds of that, but adding another pregnancy into the mix, I had been in the holding pattern. It wasn't until August of 2010 I joined spark that I started to get serious.

Over a year later,I am now home stretch of my weight loss journey. If you can call 14 pounds the home stretch! :D

I've finished the C25 on 8/16/10. Took a break from running for awhile but back on track.

12 minute mile completed on 1/15

10 minute mile completed 6/13

Sub 10 minute mile 7/5

PR 5k: 33.10 !

    Thanks for reading my blog today. I totally understand what you are saying about the WW points. I have a mental block about going back and being over my goal weight. Stupid, huh? I am only a few lbs over but that is just me. I do miss the meetings. Maybe I can muster up the courage to go soon. I appreciate your comments. Thanks, Paige

    You'll look up and down streets. Look'em over with care.
    About some you will say, "I don't choose to go there."

    Keep up the good work you finshed the c25k !
