Old Picture Floors Me...

I found this picture of me this weekend that I thought I would share. The pic on the left is from March of 2003 where I weighed in at 310 pounds plus. The right picture is from June 2nd of this year at 212 pounds.



I was shocked to say the least when I saw that photo. When I ask myself why I'm eating the way I'm eating now or why I turn down that pizza, cake, cookies, and ice cream. It's because I don't want to be that unhealthy ever again.

I am very happy about June Totals.

Running: 31.3

Biking: 48.3

Strength: 4 sessions per week

Races: Olympic Distance Duathlon in 3:12:36, 5k run in 26:58

Weight Loss: 9 Pounds

I'm hoping to be well below the 200 pound mark before marathon training and should not have a problem getting there. I'm really excited to get going on the mileage as this will be the last week of limited running and then the training starts. We had a great time on Saturday at my niece's 8th birthday party. I was successful at passing up the pizza, cake, and ice cream and stuck to my clean eating habits. Saturday night we met some good friends Tim and Clare for dinner and then some fun UNO playing at their house. Sunday was a good day of rest and some fun play time with my daughter on her new playset. We had a good time goofing around. My calories just went over the 1500 mark for today and my water intake hit the 2 gallon mark. Well, I must get some rest and I hope everyone has a great Monday morning! - Jason

I, too, am running the Richmond Marathon - my first. I went on a weight loss journey myself a few years ago from 220 to 180. You look good ... and I'll add you to my "blogs I read list" to keep up with your running.

Man! That's why I love running - it makes us, at least our appearance better! Stay cool, don't look at those crazy guys like us who try hard to hit a high mileage every week. Just do your own job, your time will come anyway. I did absolutely the same monthly milage many years ago. Also, you mentioned "200 pounds" I guess it's about 90kg. Almost perfect.

Congratulations! That is a huge accomplishment, not only for losing the weight, but becoming healthy and smart about it. You look amazing and are an inspiration!

Sweet! Keep that picture around as a reminder and motivation. Be proud of all the work you've done to get here. You're doing awesome.
