Well this week certainly flew by! It was a busy one but a good one. The only bummer is the sun hasn't come out at all and we're looking at a soaking wet weekend. I'm going to make sure there are no snacks in the house and keep myself plenty busy!!

57 pounds total!  

I can't believe I'm almost to the 60 pound mark. Next week I will probably be lighter than my husband for the first time since we got married. I'm about half a pound away from that goal :)

A few non-scale victories to share as well:

Yesterday when I started my run my legs felt heavy and not wanting to move. 49 minutes and 17 seconds later I had a personal best 5k. (okay that's not world record setting but I have short legs and that's blazing fast for me!!) Also, there are lots of hills on my route (Atlanta is up-hill both ways) but there are 2 that I normally have to walk. Yesterday, I ran up one of those hills leaving me only one more to conquer. Once I conquer a hill I will not let myself go back. I raised the bar now I'm always running that hill.

Last night I went to a concert, walked a mile to the venue and then stood for 4 hours. My legs weren't sore at all. 57 pounds ago I would have been hurting all day the next day.

People are really starting to notice and I'm practicing being gracious and saying thank you and moving on. Yesterday, a young kid that works at our local bar yelled "Tina you look AWESOME" across the intersection - there were tons of people out in our 'hood and they all looked at me but it felt great.

Happy weekend everyone! See you on Monday!
