Couch to 5k.

So, I've been doing the Couch to 5k program. At 237lbs, I am amazed. I am on week 6, I haven't had to repeat any weeks, I haven't had any injury.. I just.. Can't believe it! I could barely run one minute at a time when I started. Two days ago I ran for 20 minutes without stopping. Sure, I was slow, my speed was abysmal, I could walk faster.. BUT I WAS NOT WALKING, I was still running, I  didn't give up. I haven't gave up on any runs yet, the weather is hot. The humidity terrible, yes I do my runs at night.. I risk being harassed by rubbies, skunks, and rogue bears.. LOL. It's better for me I think to run when it's cooler, because I'd have no chance to do it early morning (I have my little girls to watch, after all.)...

Tomorrow I have a weigh in, tomorrow I hope that my 4 days of eating not so great choices out of 14 days... Didn't completely screw me up. I do as good as I can, but I'm not perfect all the time. I have no problems restarting, I eat healthy 90% of the time-- and that's what this is. A life style. I think if I didn't screw up, I couldn't do it at all. Does that make sense? Maybe I'm a strange person, but what I'm doing has made a huge difference in my life! And that's what I need. And hell, I'm becoming a runner!!
Mosquitos are slowly eating me alive, but.. Such is my life! Argh they love me.

Here is my before, and during! -84lbs looks like that right there. I will definitely push through, I will definitely reach my goals, and I WILL NOT GIVE UP!!
