Weight 125 lbs.
After my loss of 45 lbs in 2006.
I have continued to make healthier food choices, but still struggle as I love all food. I have also fluctuated in weight several times since losing my first bit of weight, but made a choice in January 2011 to become healthy and fit for my wedding in October 2011. I began the Couch to 5K program and completed it along with 11 5K races in 2011. In January 2012, I was coaxed by family and friends to take my running to another level and try a half marathon. I completed two half marathons in 2012. I'm currently training for a full 26.2 in May 2013. What I have learned through my "running journey" is you have to fuel your body with the right food and hydration to power through a hard day of work, a workout and all the other things life throws at you.
