60 pounds total! 

I hit the 60 pound mark yesterday and was THRILLED! Also, I officially weigh less than my husband which is the way it should be!

60 pounds seems to be a good number. People are freaking out when they see me. I've decided to embrace it and enjoy it even when it gets a little awkward - like when I find myself in the center of a group of people and everyone is staring at me. I keep it light and funny and then try to steer the conversation toward something else eventually!

I have my neighborhood 5k tomorrow which I'm really looking forward to. I haven't done this race in two years and am hoping it's much easier this time! It's hilly and I have my running/anxiety/breathing issue that I have in common with my friend and fellow blogger Shelley. I'm going to run a little before and do my breathing exercises and try to keep it under control. It's not something I can't deal with and it stops after about a mile but it would be nice to have a first mile where I don't feel like I have to quit!

Have a happy, healthy weekend everyone!
