It’s hard to feel like you’re starting over. I’ve been back at Weight Watchers for 4 weeks and back to running for about 6 weeks. I’ve been struggling thinking about running ability that I’ve lost and weight that I’ve gained back.
When I weighed in today, I tried to be positive (in my head) about the weight I lost and not think about straying so far from goal. Jean (our fabulous leader) said “Did you know you’re down 39lbs?!” I didn’t know that. I never looked at the total weight lost from my initial weigh in. It really put everything in perspective.
This week (and beyond) I’m hoping to focus on my progress. I find that when I’m running, I’m thinking about what I was able to do last year or the year before. I worry about not being able to run as long or as fast as I used to. I should really focus on how far I’ve come in the last 6 weeks. I’m able to run longer, faster, and farther.
I’m down 39.2lbs from my highest and I can run twice as far as I could 6 weeks ago.
