Slow & Steady.. wins the race or makes you crazy!

I'm still here.  Just sooo beyond busy right now!  Work is busy with the Passion Play... home is busy with just four kids, hubby and home maintenance!  Running lots... happy that I am now running 10k.  I am feeling more and more ready for my first 10k race this May 1st.  Now that I have ran the course on my own I feel prepared.. and ready to have a great time!

So my title.. what does it really mean?  Well... my whole weight loss journey.. it's been a journey in many ways.  The weight loss of course, spiritual journey, mental wellness and health journey, becoming physically stronger journey and many other areas.

I truly am glad that the weight has come off slowly.  I know if the weight just "fell" off that it would have just fooled me that I can maintain that kind of loss or weight.  The journey is the most important part.  Learning about food, making healthier choices (almost always), educating myself about the human body and finally integrating physical activity in my life.. forever.

My last 20lbs are taking a long time to come off.  I know that I have to change up a few things in my life.. up my running either in distance or intensity, change up my eating habits.. both these factors will fool my body and start it loosing weight again.  I am happy with the process I've made so far.. but I have to keep my eye on my desired end results.  I can't loose focus now.. I'm come so far and worked too hard.  Need to FOCUS.

Final weight loss to date: 37lbs.

166.5 and stuck

Update: no weight lost.. no weight gained... I have NO IDEA what is going on with my body!  I don't really feel smaller in the clothes so I am not sure that I am just getting smaller and gaining muscle.  I have been running 3-4 times a week.  Although the 4 times a week isn't that consistent.  I've upped my distance.. I've ran 10k (ok ok once)... but I'd like that to be my new 'regular' distance and just get quicker.  So I'm not sure why I am stuck.  The next thing to look at is what I'm eating.. I not really eating anything different .. and I don't THINK I've increased my portions... but I think I am going to have to start keeping track.  I really don't want to .. because as I've said before when I start thinking about food and what I should and shouldn't eat I get stressed and then eat more.. it's crazy I know.. but that's me.

I'm pretty frustrated to be honest with you.. I thought I had my routine down pat.. eat less, move more.  My original goal is only 15lbs away.. but since then I've changed it ..  I have 20lbs left.  It's been a long hard road to get me moving and be more physical again.  And watching what I eat... I'm happy with the progress so far.. and I know it really is a lifestyle change so it is life-long... but I just SOOOOO want to be at my goal weight.

So that's it.. that's where I'm at as far as running and my weight loss journey. .....
