OK...... Today I signed up for my 2 biggest races.... A 10 miler with the Atlanta Track Club in September and The Atlanta 1/2 Marathon. I haven't decided if the feeling I have right now is excitement or nervousness. I have come a very very long way..... From a athlete in my youth to couch potato to weighing over 400lbs (yeah I said it 2007-08) now I got my mojo back and I am doing more than I could have ever imagined. Cant wait to see how far I have come.

What is more important.... How YOU LOOK OR HOW YOU FEEL. For some of my journey I found myself obsessed with the scale. Weighing twice a day. Since then I have cut it to 2 sometimes 3 days a week... Should I be caring more about the #'s the scale show..... Or the fact that my blood pressure is back to normal. At the age of 32 I am about 25 pounds heavier than I was in the 12th grade. I have tossed out several outfits because they are just TOO BIG now. So what I am saying now is GOOD BYE scale and hello to looking good, feeling great and staying MOTIVATED.
