5K on Saturday

Oct 26, 2011

This weekend, October 29th, I am registered for a 5k run/walk for Raul Jiminez Thanksgiving Dinner.  It's a dinner that feeds the homeless and the elderly that have no where to go for Thanksgiving.  I have always wanted to contribute to this charity because Thanksgiving has always been my mom's favorite holiday, it's the one holiday we always spent at her house....my dad had Christmas, she had Thanksgiving.  LOL.  Anyway, Thanksgiving is just a special holiday for me and so, to be able to give back to people who have no family or no where to go, means a lot to me.  Since I have been working out, I thought I would try this 5K and see how it goes and then I am going to start training for the Susan Komen Race for the Cure in May 2012.  That will be near/dear to my heart also since I just lost my aunt Janet to what started off as breast cancer.  She is my step mom's baby sister and was barely older than me.  So scary.  So, good things are happening on the health front.  Weight loss is still agonizingly slow.  I am at 241 and I started at 312.  So, it's a lot but for me, it's just not coming off quick enough.  But, it will happen and I know it, so I am trying to be patient.  I am starting to have a lot of sagging skin and I can not wait to get to goal weight so I can start getting some cosmetic stuff done....like my under arms, they are WRETCHED.  LOL.  So, I will let you know how the run/walk goes and thanks for reading/checking up on me!
