So, this week's weight wasn't a huge change: 194.2, which means I was down 0.6, which is the same that I was up last week. It also means I'm at a total weight loss of 49.6 pounds. Seriously, could I just hit that 50 lost mark?
I'm okay with that. I've just set some major goals for myself this week and I know losing more weight is going to make a huge difference in getting there. That is a huge motivation and helps keep me focused.
I've been losing weight for over a year and a half now. I've lost in some weeks, maintained in more, and gained in almost none. I'm at the point of accepting that the weight loss part of this is going to be a long journey. I plan to get to a healthy weight in the next few months, but I think the process of finding my optimal weight is still going to be a long road - possibly years. These last few pounds have made a significant and noticeable difference in my running ability. I want to find out just how far I can go, and I'm not going to let the extra pounds hold me back.

Onto another thing. I've been feeling a bit down about my blog lately. The comments have plummeted and I was starting to wonder if anybody actually read it anymore. Then, today, I had my first "celebrity moment"!
I know some of the bigger bloggers get recognized regularly. It's never happened to me though. Plenty of friends and family read my blog, and there's some other bloggers whose blogs I read and they tend to read mine.
Then, while standing in line, the lady in front of me looked back and said "I know you. Don't you have a blog?" So COOL! We do have a mutual friend, and live in the same town, so she's not a complete stranger, but it's still neat to know that someone other then my mother reads my writing. ;)
Sarah, if you are reading, it was so nice to meet you today, and your kind words about my blog lifted my spirit in ways you don't even know. Thank you!
