so this is me....

tonight...at 9:15pm. Yes...I look like a dork. But that is totally me. :) I'm not photogenic at all....see my red complexion? Yeah....I can thank my father for that...and it only gets redder when I exercise!! The stringy, clumpy hair...oh and the sweat. Boy do I sweat. (which I actually wear a thick sweatshirt when I'm walking so I'll sweat extra much...and I think I'll try the wrestler's trick and wear a garbage bag over my tshirt and under my sweatshirt...yes...I'm odd) BUT...my point in this photo is that I have been on a weight loss mission.

I am bound and determined to get down to my goal weight..which when I started was 15lbs. I'm excited to say that I've lost 6 of those pounds already. Since last Thursday I've been walking a little over 4 miles a day. Every morning I walk 2.2 miles and the same every night. I have been making it in about 1/2 hour so I'm booking it. :) I feel GREAT. I haven't really noticed anything so much in my clothes as of yet...but the scale is going down and that in itself makes me VERY happy. And tonight...tonight I ran. And I didn't die...which I thought was very cool. :) I ran about a mile and did okay and now I am thinking maybe I can start running so my goal is to run the whole 2.2 miles. We'll see. Anyway...I'm just rambling...just happy that I feel good. Can't wait to lose the pudge in my face and around my middle. It's amazing what a little exercise and fresh air can do for ones soul.

Hey you dork - you look so cute!!!! I really don't see any pudgy face there at all.
But WELL DONE you on the weight loss and on walking all the miles.
Good for you trying the running bit, I know you will be able in no time to run the whole 2.2
