thirty five pounds, and counting

I know everyone is mostly tuned into the adoption blog–for which we are grateful. But I have to celebrate my personal accomplishments as well. I braved the scale a few days ago because so many people have said I am looking thinner. To my amazement I have lost more weight. This is a huge blessing since I haven’t had time to “try” in months. Of course, running after four children, forgetting to eat dinner, and scaling the stairs 20 times per day is sure to help.

I have lost 35 pounds since January when I started training for the 1/2 marathon. The best part about it is that I feel so good right now that I am motivated to start exercising again. My schedule with the children doesn’t lend me to much snacking during the day. That has also helped. I still have about 50 pounds to go, but 50 is manageable when I see that I’ve already lost almost that much.

I know I should post a picture, but I don’t really have one ready. I’ll have to go through the recent pictures, and post it next to one of my pre-miscarriage pics from January!
