I’d like to start off this post to congratulate Nicholle and Cameron on such a beautiful wedding and for allowing me to be a part of such a special moment in the new chapter of there lives together. Had it not been for them, I wouldn’t have been able to have such fun losing weight!

Last year I made the goal to lose weight so that come the wedding day I would feel beautiful and comfortable. It was also a challenge to embrace the gym. It’s always interesting amongst my friends of who enjoys the gym and who enjoys more cardio workouts.

I currently stand at 165 pounds. A total of 13 pounds since the start of the year.

I’ve lost a total of 6 inches since I began earlier this year. Considering the ups and downs of the year so far (mostly ups of course! ) I’m happy that everything I’ve lost has stayed off !

My lovely dress!

I am happy with my progress. But I still have more I want to work on.  I recall when I first started running I wasn’t too far from the weight I was in high school. I’d love to try and get close to that again. I know with faster running and gym workouts I can get there! I’ve also got plans to do some running whilst I travel this fall. More on that another time !

The #buffbridesmaid challenge was great. And am now looking for another specific goal besides numbers. I really did like losing inches and I’d love to lose more and have some abs to show off. Or as close as I can get to it.

Especially since I’d love to get a tattoo on my side next year. Must play around wish hashtag ideas 😉 stay tuned

I’ve got my sights set on 3 half marathons next year. As well as some more 10ks and some more trail races. All of this depending on work. I’m looking forward to eventually getting a Monday to friday work life so I can run more races on Saturdays!

I’m finding myself less discouraged and more focused on making little goals and working my way up.

Until then, I’m just gonna get running and back in weight lifting . As well defining my goals 🙂

Thanks to all those who have been following along on facebook and the twitterverse your support made all the difference!
