57 inches and 4 miles

September 1, 2008 at 12:21 am 3 comments

I forgot to do my monthly measurements the other day so I finally did that today.  I lost 12 lbs this month and 13.5 inches.  That brings my total inches lost to 57 since I started tracking my measurements on March 31st.  I meant to do measurements before surgery but I completely forgot about it.

As for the 4 miles part of this…Eric and I took the kids to the zoo today.  We had a great time.  I wore my pedometer in there and we walked 4 miles total!  I told Eric that the last time I was there (September 07), we barely walked 1/2 of it and I thought I’d die.  Today, I was leading the way and urging them on.  It was pretty hot and I did get tired at the end, but it was fun and I didn’t get tired or winded or anything like that.  What an amazing difference these 6 months have made!

    That’s awesome — both the inches and stamina. You’re right — what a difference 6 months can make!

    Here’s hoping the next 6 are just as exciting!!

    You must feel so great! To know that you can keep up with your kids and have a great time must be an amazing feeling. And it’s only getting better every day! You are awesome!

    That is so wonderful you leading the way and not being exhausted. We recently went to a park with my grandchildren and although I was exhausted I was proud that I could do the park without passing out. Congrats! Barbara
