Before & After


Those are my scale readings this week. Monday, I started tracking on SparkPeople, but did not weigh. Tuesday I weighed 130.8. Wednesday, I weighed at 128.4. This morning, I weighed in at 127.8. Wow, this is working. I am eating between 1300 and 1500 calories. SparkPeople recommends I eat about 1200-1550. I tweak it according to my workouts. Saturday is long run day...8, I will obviously go over my "budget" of calories, but also burn 1000+ calories.

I feel good about my progress thus far. 3 pounds in 3 days, I will take it. My overall goal is to be 109 by 6/1/11. Now, before anyone goes crazy on me, this is attainable for me to do in a healthy way. I am just under 5' tall. Right now my BMI is 25.8 putting me in the "Overweight" category. At 109, I will have a BMI of 22 putting me in the middle of the "Normal" Range.

 This is a photo of me and I would say I weighed approximately 160-165. This was taken a year before I met Chad and when I met him I weighed 155. 

This is me at 124. Do I believe I look terrible 4 pounds lighter than I am now? No, not at all. However, for me, I know I can look better. I have my fat days just like everybody else, but I also know I have come a long way and look 100% better than I used to.

These pictures will continue to motivate me to get where I would like to be!

Goal of the Day: Get my booty to the gym for my speedwork after work. No excuses.


  1. You look awesome!! Your almost there!!

  2. Nice work! You are so diligent about posting your eats. I'm sure you'll have a great 8 mile run.

  3. OMG looking good girl! I love how us shorties have to defend ourselves about low-100's being a healthy weight for us. I'm shooting for 125 (and same height as you) and I still have to defend myself and that's still overweight for us!

    Anyway keep up the awesome job!
