Thirty by 30 3.15.14

Sorry if I'm posting about my weight issues too much, but I'm really doing my best to keep myself going!

Yesterday I finished week 4 of Couch to 5k. It was a tough week, but I made it somehow. I had to keep telling myself to not give up! I also finished day 5 of level 1 of 30 Day Shred. When I do day 6, I will have stuck with it longer than ever before.

Saturdays are my weigh in days, so I hopped on the scales this morning. I got so frustrated because the scale didn't move a single bit from last week. I actually cried a few mad tears to Ronnie. But then I took my measurements and I've lost 2.25 inches from my waist and 2 inches from my hips! I've lost 9 inches total!!! I am super happy about that! I also had Ronnie take some progress pictures for me so I could actually see if all my work is paying off. At first, I wasn't that impressed, but I studied them for a few minutes and realized that I can really tell a difference! And my jeans aren't so snug anymore!

Thanks for all of your encouragement so far! I'm really doing this! :)

You rock! Sticking to an exercise plan is tough! The scale might not have moved because you are making muscle. I am so so glad you can see the progress in the pictures, how encouraging!!!

I tried the couch to 5k and I could not make it through day 1. I can not run. I have thought about starting the 30 day shred again. I am proud of you and keep up the great work and it is your blog you can blog about anything you want. I love your weight loss updates.

Thanks, ladies! Yes...I am saying that I've made muscle and that's why the scale got comfy. ;)

Vicki, some of the girls in my mfp group modify each week. Maybe you could try doing half of the running times and work up to more the next week. One girl did week 4 for 4 weeks increasing her running time until she got to where she was supposed to be. Just an idea, but 30DS is workout enough!
