1/2 of me gone...

Today I weigh 185 pounds. wow just wow! My highest weight was 370 pounds so I have now lost 185 pounds since my highest weight or simply put I have lost half of me! I am down 154 pounds from surgery.

I still want to lose 20 pounds (maybe more...I will know once I get there) and I need to lose 5 more to hit my surgeons goal weight for me which was set at 180 pounds.

I feel great! I registered to run my first 5k in September. Funny thing is its my birthday present to myself. I want to prove to myself that I can do a 5k (and hopefully a marathon one day!) so I decided to run one the weekend before my 32nd birthday.

I still can't believe how far I have come in a little over 9 months. I am so proud of myself and excited to see what the future holds for me!
