Still Working Hard.

Aug 15, 2009

Ok, so I'm still working hard towards my goal of a Triathlon but it doesn't look like I'm going to make it to the Pumpkinman in October. I found out I really HATE swimming!!!  I need to push past it though because I really want to be able to accomplish it. I did decide however, considering the time I have left and the shape that I'm in. I'm revising that goal to the Prymamid Lake Triathlon which is closer to my home town. This one is every August so they just had one. I now have another year to prepare. I think this may be more realistic.

I only have 6 more pounds to go to reach 100 lbs lost. Wahoo!!!  I'm not sure if my goal weight is realistic or not. Everyone tells me I'm getting too thin. Never ever thought I'd hear those words! The problem is my face IS getting really thin but I still have extra flab on the rest of me. I originally was thinking my goal would be 135 for my 5'7 frame. Now I'm thinking more of 145. I will have to see how much my muscle weighs.

I found a new friend and workout partner through our local Bariatric Support Group and I'm so thankful for her.  Patrice is so much like me and we just are really good for each other. We are training for an upcomming 5K in October.
