The scale didn't move this morning and I am starting to get very frustrated. I am stuck at 255, a number that is way to high to be stuck at. I am working out and eating right, yet the number wont move down. I know there are plateaus but this is just really frustrating. I am going to just try and work through it and hopefully I will break through soon. I though for sure I would be below 250 by this weekend but I was wrong. I am so close, but I just can't seem to get there. For the first time since starting, my weight did not drop any from the last week's weigh in. I know that I have come a long way, but I still have a log way to go and I don't want to be stopped here.
My half marathon training schedule will be getting progressively tougher each week, so I should see some more weight loss soon, that will keep me going on this right now. A runner told me that there is nothing easy about a half marathon, that is why it is such an achievement to complete one, regardless of the time it takes. That is very true, and I plan to complete this one. I am still nervous, 13.1 miles seems like an impossibly long distance right now, but 3.1 miles did as well back in January and now I run at least that on a daily basis.
I hope that by November I am 220 or below and able to run the entire half marathon with a time of 2:15:00 or less. I think I can do that if I stay focused.
