Gee, thanks!

After reading the comments I received on my last post, I need to say thank you. Living in my body every day keeps me from seeing the results of losing twenty-one pounds. That three people said something to me about it based on that picture means that it is visible - I am noticeably smaller than I was. It really made my day! A big thank you to Eileen, Fox in Detox, and L-Unit (the anonymous commenter).

In other (scary) news, I've done something kinda big: I've signed up to run a 5k race in July! Saturday, July 19, I will be participating in the "3rd Annual Danforth's to Dysart's 5k." It will be my very first race! I'm not even up to running three miles yet. I did check with the director to make sure that I will be able to get a t-shirt. I really want a memento of my first-ever race. My Life Plan is to get a t-shirt from every race I run until I have enough to make a quilt. That's sixteen to twenty races or thereabouts. I need to have something to keep me motivated once my "training" program is over and I can run for thirty minutes at a time.

In case you didn't notice, I've added new activity and weight goals to my blog (bottom of the page). You can keep track of me there. I'll work on adding some new pics soon! After all, if you're going to keep complimenting me, I'm going to keep posting! :-D

Running in a 5k race is so exciting and wonderful. What great motivation too. I am so happy for you and I don't blame you for wanting a t-shirt. You deserve that t-shirt.

Have a wonderful weekend!
