Creeping up on 220!!!

Imagine my surprise when I stood on the Gold's Gym scale on Saturday! Imagine my jubilation! Imagine my pure pride, imagine the tears swelling up in my eyes as I reflected upon the work and struggles I had gone through these last seven weeks. Imagine how weirded out, but yet proud, that tiny Asian man at the gym was after I hugged him coming off the scale. Imagine the chills that were shot down my spine as I ran from the scale to my car, through the human tunnel made by all in attendance at that glorious occasion. Picture a kid, eight pounds thinner, jumping for joy with the 2:00 p.m. ladies yoga class as we enjoyed my success together.

In deed, the day was good and the work is showing forth marvelous fruits.

I stepped on the scale and saw 223 pounds... eight pounds less than when the challenge began. There are so many people to thank, I don't even know where to begin.... so I won't.

I have another 5k coming up on Thursday, I promise pictures and video footage from that race will be put up that day. I will be carrying a camera and will be filming me during the race.

WEEKLY UPDATE, July 22, 2008

WEIGHT: 223 pounds... look out 220, here I come!

FOOD EATEN: pretty good for you food, although there has been a couple pizza breakdowns and of course, otter pop season is in full bloom and I can't just let those go to waste. But other than those things, I am doing great.

EXERCISES DONE: Too many to count, we're talking running, crunches, biking, and dancing.... lots of dancing.

Wish me luck everyone and check back for the 5K updates. Thanks to all who have encouraged me.

Kyle-don't forget to stretch before the big 5K. You are certain to lose those three pounds. :)

Gosh, as I read that I could hear a halalua chorus lead by Richard Simmons, all wearing red shorts and red, white, and blue tank tops, shouting praises and danicing around you as you ran through Gold's Gym. Although disturbed by the imagery, I am proud of you and the effort that you are making. Keep "sweatin" off those pounds.
