I am beyond excited!!

I just weighed and I have lost MORE weight!!! I have now lost 7.4 lbs since January 1st!! I have only 4.6 lbs to go until I reach my goal...4.6 pounds!!!!!!!

Just think. I have now lost 16 lbs since my last half marathon which was December 5th!! Think about how that weight has affected my knee. Think about running holding a 16 lb DB!! That is what I was running with! When I think about this I understand so well just how important it is for me to focus on weight loss this year so that I can come back in 2012 and race my triathlons again, but this time LEANER and FASTER!!!

This is my motivation photo we took while in Bali. I am wanting to get back to where I was in 2008 and now I have only 4.6 lbs to go!!! 

I am getting ready to do an easy 6 miles today as it is my last run before my half marathon on Saturday. I really feel on top of the world!
