Remember this woman?

I DO!  She never wanted to get off the couch....she could hardly walk a block down the street without feeling like she got the wind punched out of her.  She had excuses....so many excuses not to be active! 

Who would think that less than 15 months post-op she'd be crossing the finish line of her first ever 10km race!  Not only that but finishing in a better time than more than HALF of the other participants. 

I ran my first 10KM race yesterday WITH a stomach virus AND on only 2 hours of sleep!  Imagine what I could have accomplished in a rested and physically healthy state! 

I am now in maintenance (well trying to figure out maintenance but still losing weight lol)...I am 12.8 pounds below my goal of 150 pounds and 5'9 inches tall - YES I grew an entire inch in height after surrendering my weight!  I ran the race with my mom's husband!

And here is me...happy and more relaxed after the race and about to eat some post-race lunch with my husband!  Self Portrait!

I also was trying to figure out if my goal of 140 lbs at 5'8" was too low but looking at you, I think that is exactly where I want to be
