Team /var/run/lose – Winter Weight Loss Challenge 2013-2014

8

The start of this challenge has me weighing in at 132 lbs.

It hurt to type that.

Over the summer during marathon training season I hung consistently around 128-130, which is sadly about five pounds up from where I was at the beginning of spring. I’d been hanging at 130 until last week when I unexpectedly ballooned to 132.

Keep in mind I’m 5’1″, so 130 lbs is just a lot for this little bag of bones to handle.

Ideally, I’d like to be in the neighborhood of 115-120, with that number being closer to 115 for marathon days.

I’ll track some stats here (those awful measurements) and post a little summary each week I weigh in (officially).

I’ll also take some of those awful “before” photos this week so we have a visual reference.

Oops. I guess I haven’t updated in awhile. Finally trying to get back on track after Thanksgiving post-puffiness.

(Yes, I realize there is a gap here where I didn’t weigh in last week.
I don’t want to talk about it.)

  5. […] Weight Loss Challenge Update: I’m down 0.6 lbs from my last weigh-in at Thanksgiving. Yeah, it’s been awhile. December is tough for weight loss. Parties, food, long trips in the car, food…yeah. My realistic weight loss goal is 0.5-1 lb a week. Still working on getting back into this. […]

Amy, July 2013

I'm a thirty-something suburbanite turned ruralite living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Wife, mom of two, eater of all things delicious, and a runner. This is where I blather on about running and health. Baby Number Three will be here in November (so yes, I'm a little crazy), and I'm running through my pregnancy for as long as my body's willing and able. There's also more of me at amyupnorth.com.

Spent Monday visiting a good friend, who put up with me while I drooled over yarn at @spunannarbor (beautiful store!) and had lunch at @zingermansdeli, a favorite I haven't been to in 12 years. Ann Arbor, promise I won't take that long to come back.

I’m an Ambassador!
