73 pounds total! 

On Tuesday it will be 10 years since I met my husband and I will be roughly the same weight as I was when I met him. I still have the size 12 pants I was wearing that day and I plan on wearing them out to dinner that night. It won't be as romantic as a train station in Scotland but not much is :)

Never in my wildest dreams did I think those pants could be worn again - they hung in the closet so long they got dusty - a constant reminder of my failure to lose weight. Now I'm probably wearing them for the last time before they are too big and go to Goodwill. 

Tomorrow morning I'm getting up early, parking my car where the finish line will be and taking the subway to the start of the course for the Peachtree. It's such a weird feeling to leave my car behind with only and iphone and my own two feet to get me back there!

I plan on running the whole 6.2 for the rest of the month. Last year I started at dawn but this year I promised myself I'd start a little later and run a little more in the intense heat. My start wave is 9am (I moved up from 9:30!) Maybe some day I'll start at 7:30 with the Nigerians :)

Have a great weekend everyone!!



  1. Great weigh in, you are putting in great work!

  2. What an awesome weigh in! And it's wonderful you get to wear those pants again. Can you keep them for sentimentality and have them tailored as you lose weight?

  3. Hope you have a great run, and don't you feel empowered and independent by knowing that you'll make it back to your car all on your own? LOVE IT!

  4. Congrats! It's great that you will get to wear those pants again. What a great non-scale victory.

  5. Congrats thats an awesome NSV both you and your husband must be so pleased about that!
