Jogging along-

Another month down of watching my calories, or two months total. For the last two weeks I've even been jogging too- and it feels great. I have to say one thing though... thank goodness for my inhaler! My asthma is a pain, but I'm slowly rebuilding my lung capacity. Yesterday I jogged 1.25miles and fast walked another quarter of a mile while I cooled down; I only stopped for like a minute to walk and catch my breath while jogging. I know that might not seem like much, but for me it's awesome! Hopefully soon I can plow through the entire 30 minutes of jogging without a break at all. I always use my inhaler, but that's a given. My asthma isn't going to go away, but I can make it more manageable.

I had a setback over the week leading up to Mother's Day. I was eating pretty bad and I forgot to take my Metformin for an entire day. As a result, I gained back 1-2lbs. Yeah, that's not pretty. Ugh. I'm back on track though. I have to add... SODA IS THE DEVIL! I don't drink it generally, since it has so many calories, but I let myself over the week because I was just exhausted. The pick-me-up was nice at the time, but probably not worth it.

So where am I at now?

Since March 17th:
Weight loss: 10lbs
Inches off waist: 2
Inches off hips: 2

Heck yeah! I wish it was going down faster, but I'll take what I can get. My clothes don't really fit any different yet, so it's hard for me to gauge my progress. I think most of the weight off the hips is from things still righting themselves after my c-section, so I don't really know if I can claim that as my own doing.

Oh, and I seem to have lost some from my, ahem... bust.

I'm cool with that.

Slow is good. You have a better chance of keeping it off.

That's awesome! My husband and I also started counting calories and jogging about a month ago. :) I'm actually enjoying it so far!
