Weight loss update

So it's been a while since I've posted about the weight loss. It's has slowed quite a bit, but I'm hoping it will be picking up again because I'm training for a 5K. Plus I wanted to post when I lost 100 pounds total and I'm still 2 pounds away and have been hovering around being 2-5 pounds away for a while now. So as of this morning I was 220 and 218 will be my 100 pound mark. I started training for the 5K with Lindsey and we are on our 3rd week. I'm glad I'm not as sore as I was the first 2 weeks. My goal is to jog the whole thing with no walking. I have only 6 more weeks to train, but it should be fine. I'm doing the couch to 5K program and then once it's over I think I'm going to start training for a 10K in the spring. That should be fun. I really enjoy running. It's a great stress reliever and I fall asleep so much faster now. My body is exhausted and I really like that. So I'm hoping that all this running/walking will help me drop another 20 pounds. It'll be great to get down past 200 and back in the 100's. I haven't been there since college and I'm hoping to get there and stay there a while, meaning forever!

In other news, I have another quilt idea but haven't started it yet. It should go pretty fast as it's just charm squares. I'm excited to get at it again, but have been so busy with the running and church stuff these days. And with the holidays fast approaching I may not get as much done as I'd like. Oh well, that's what New Years Resolutions are for. I think I've done pretty good with the weight loss resolution this year :) Yay!
