Couch to 5K

I finally started the couch to 5K today. I told myself that I was going to start it when I've lost 100 lbs. I have no idea when I'll get there! I had gotten to see a loss of 95 lbs at one point. Now, for the past few weeks, my scale has bounced up and down by 3 lbs. It doesn't want to get below that 95 lb mark! It's very frustrating. I haven't done a vlog in a while. I think people will get tired of me saying "Hi guys! It's week such and such and my weight hasn't changed again!" LOL I finally stopped waiting for that 100 lb loss! I started it today! I felt very awkward. I think I bounce too much. I'm in the process of reading some books on running. Maybe I will pick up some pointers. I "run" down the side of one of the busiest roads in the county. Most people have to pass my path on the way to my work! I was worried about people seeing me and laughing at me because I look like a dork when I'm trying to run. It doesn't look pretty to see a fat woman bouncing down the side of the road. But, when I thought about it, I see people running down the side of the road and I never think they look funny. I always think "I should be doing that." So, maybe some heavy person will see my fat ass running down the road and will get inspired. Maybe they will think "If she can do it, I can too." And maybe they will. And maybe they will lose weight. And maybe they will be healthier. And maybe, just maybe, I will have affected some one's life for the best by being a big ole dork! :)

That's *so* cool that you've started running! Kudos to not staying too focused on the magic number "100" and just going out there and doing it, anyway. And, you're right, nobody's really looking (or at least that's what I tell myself when I'm running in the evenings and am sweaty as all hell!) Can't wait to run a race together.
