Slow and Steady

So I realize that I have not posted for the past couple of weeks.  I just really haven't felt like I had anything to share to be honest with you.  No I have not given up or anything, I have just kind of settled into my routine and there is really nothing exciting to say about it.  I am eating healthy and exercising regularly and losing weight slow and steady.  I am now one week shy of four months and am down 64.4 lbs.  I am averaging about 2.5 lbs. a week right now, which I am happy with, but I would really like to be in the 3-4lb range.  I will definitely take what I can get though.  
I am currently getting ready for my 5K that I will be running on May 19th.  I have definitely seen an improvement in that area and am actually kind of excited to do it now.  Another fun thing is that I have found several more articles of clothing that fit me again.  That for me has been a big help in motivation.  When I look at myself I still just see this big fat girl, and it is hard to see the progress when looking in the mirror.  I know I am doing great and making good progress, but it is just hard to break away from that mental image I have of myself.  So to be able to fit into smaller clothes has been a big help in realizing that it really is happening.  
This past month I also took second place in a contest they were doing at Sponsor Me Slim.  I won an ageloc galvanic spa system which I am super excited to start using.  My face and skin could definitely use some help.
I am really trying hard to just live normal and not think so much all the time about what I am doing.  Obviously it takes a lot of thought and time, but I am trying to really live my new lifestyle and just be OK with what it is.  I have realized that this is something I will forever struggle with, but if I can get comfortable with the idea that this is just how it is, then I feel I will have more success over the duration of my life.  Overall I am feeling better every day and looking to the future with excitement at all the things that will be mine.  Thanks again to everyone for your continued support!!


  1. Christa, you are doing great! I bet looking back, the last four months have gone pretty quick and the next four will probably be even faster with nice weather and summer fun! Keep it up, you ARE doing it!!!

  2. That's right - "slow and steady" wins the race! You are amazing! I don't think I could run a 5K if my life depended on it! You're doing wonderfully!!

  3. Christa you are doing amazing and I miss seeing you at workouts. But I know how you feel, being able to fit in clothing I havent worn in years is confirmation that its working! Keep you with good work!
