Weigh in Wednesday

It's that time again!! (the only time I blog...whoops)
This week has been pretty good, even though I haven't lost any el bees. Annoying.  

Last Thursday I ran jogged 2 miles without stopping. This probably doesn't seem like anything too exciting to a lot of people but to me it's huge. I started trying to run just as a form of cardio because I want to lose weight...obviously. But now it's become a challenge and a goal to work towards. I want to "become a runner." Whatever that means, I guess we'll find out.
My two goals with this are to do a 5k and to be able to just go for a run outside. I attempted my first outside run on Sunday. I would guess I jogged half and walked half. I have no idea how far I went and it was at my aunt and uncle's house in Illinois so I can't map it to figure it out. It doesn't even least I did some sweating!
Even with the progress I've made...sometimes I still get really frustrated that the results aren't happening very fast at all. When we started this whole journey in the beginning of January I had goals. I didn't make those goals. I told myself that I wanted to lose 10 pounds by Valentine's Day. I still haven't even lost 10 pounds, not even close! I told myself that I was going to wear a bikini this summer and feel decently good in it. Yeah...from the way things have been going that's not happening. BUT...I'm staying positive and I'm going to keep working my ass off.

Really need to start working my arms hard. I'm not happy with my progress, or lack of progress in my arms.

I feel like the oldest one (orange) is the best one...weird.
I figured it'd be good for me to post some "fat pics" and some "goal pics." My fat pics are from when I was my biggest...2008-2009. Which is weird to be because I didn't weigh hardly any more then than I do now. My goal pics are from late 2009-2010 when I was about 160-165ish. I would be so happy if I could look like that again.
I definitely store fat in my face

I just look like I feel fat and uncomfortable in this pic. With the whole hand on my hip so my arm fat is less noticable. Ugh.
These pics were on Spring break 2010. I spent a week in a bikini and didn't hate it. For the first time ever. I'll get back there...

Still have that belly pouch but I felt SO GOOD. And looked the best I'd ever looked. Happy girl.

Nostalgia going on fun. And I was confident, which was the best part.

I'm coming for you 160!
