Milestone in my weight loss journey!

On Thursday, February 12th, I hit a very important goal that I made for myself when I started all of this at the beginning of the year.

And I hope and pray that I never see that again.
I have made small monthly goals for myself and I have one major goal right now and that is to lose 30lbs by my 30th birthday in May. So far I am on track to hit that goal.

I gotta tell you though...Right now it is fairly easy to follow and stick to the Weight Watchers plan. I am at the office during suppertime, Monday-Friday. I have a stash of Lean Cuisine meals in the freezer and a whole bunch of low point snacks in my drawer. When April 15th comes around I will really have to work harder at it and make healthier meals for supper. I am already doing some research and looking for good recipes on the Weight Watchers site.

You know what else...I started on the Couch to 5k program today. I did Week 1 Day 1 and did all of the running segments. I used to detest the treadmill but I am actually getting to like it. I tried to do this program last spring but just didn't follow through. I am going to try my darndest to stick with it this time. There is a 5k in my hometown on August 2nd that I would love to run while my dad and brother run the half-marathon. Keep your fingers crossed for me. ;)

That is so awesome Kate! I remember when I hit that milestone myself, boy did it feel good!

I love to try new recipes, so I'm sure I can help you out once tax season is over too:-)

I am so glad you are trying C25K again! I am planning on trying to do the fargo 1/2 this year. Maybe you can join me next year!
