I think I mentioned on here earlier that I was training for the Long Island Marathon on May 3rd. Well that was before I started having knee problems, and had to walk 2 miles home from the middle of Central Park in freezing cold weather because it hurt too much to run. Yeah, it was a sad day. But now, about 3 weeks later, things are getting better and I am slowly starting to run again. Sadly, I will not be ready for my marathon, but I have a couple of halfs that I am excited about, some awesome open water swims in the Hudson, a tri with the fam in August, and possibly another family marathon in the fall. I know, you've heard that before... 3rd times a charm... promise!
But, in spite of my sad knee problems, I have managed to lose about 13 lbs since the beginning of January, and now only have a few lbs left to get to my pre-pregnancy bod. Pure joy!! I can't even describe to you how wonderful it feels to fit into my old pants, and not even have them dig into my sides. I honestly felt like I would never get there again, but alas... But, like I said, I still have a little ways to go, but I have been feeling so good lately, that I just had to toot my own horn. So, yay for me. :) Only now I feel like we need to get new family pictures taken, because every time I look at the ones on the sidebar, all I can think is "I can't believe how chubby I look!" (although I have to admit, I do think my hair looks pretty good!) No wonder I have been having so many people from my ward comment on my weight loss... to them, I was a chubby girl. But, no more.
**Ok, so I honestly feel SOOO dorky for putting this picture up here, but I kind of wanted to for my own interest sake... so that I could see it with my own eyes. You know how it's sometimes hard to tell that you've lost weight to your own eyes. Anyway, I know, I could never be a model, because I cannot for the life of me figure out the most flattering poses (I think the ladies in Hollywood must go through some special course on how to find their most flattering angles), but you get the idea. Morgan, 3/30/09, sportin' her "skinny" jeans. 13 down, 4 more to go! Oh, and for those of you who asked... weight watchers, running and swimming.
