I am feeling really great right now. I am signed up for a 5K run next weekend. I am excited and have been preparing for it. I have been doing a run/walk (run or jog about 2 or 3 min, then walk 1 1/2 min then run/jog again) for a few weeks. Doing about 2 miles each time. So far my best practice time was about a 17 min mile. Today I went to the park with the intentions of doing the whole 3.2 mile, just like the 5K. Well I ended up only doing 2.75 miles because Vance called and said Cheyanne had been crying for 30 minutes and he couldn't get her to calm down. So I quit and came home. But when I figured my time, I was shocked to realize I had beat my best practice time. I averaged a 16.25 min mile. I am so happy! I want to do this 5K and beat my previous race time of 37 minutes total. So I am trying to get faster. So I guess we will see next weekend.
Well yesterday was my weekly weigh in and I am super excited to say that I lost 2.25lbs!!! That puts me at 177. So close to my next goal I can taste it.!!! I am also excited because the school called me yesterday and I get to sub on Monday for the first time ever. So excited to see how it goes.

Ok, the rest of my story. I started this journey at 195lbs. I am now at 178lbs, so 17lbs down. It has been 8 weeks since I started this and I feel great about it. I have a daughter that is 18 months old and I started trying to lose immediatly after having her. But I breastfed her until a month ago and I truly believe that kept me from losing. I weaned her 4 weeks ago and the weight has been falling off for the past 3 weeks. I lost down to 185 almost immediatly after starting the program, but I had done that 3 times since having her and could never get below that number. So when I weaned her and my body adjusted it seemed to jumpstart my weight loss. Now I know everyone says "if you breast feed you will lose all your weight fast" Not me!! I felt so hungry all the time I think I was eating enough for 3 grown men!! But now that is in check and I feel so much better.
So this is me today. In my outfit that was way too tight early this summer. I love the way it looks now!
Hey, My name is Jennifer, and I am just trying out this site b/c my sister loves it. So, I thought I would give it a try. I have been doing Nu Energy weight Control since July 2, 2009. I am trying to exercise alot and prepare to do another 5K. I was interested today b/c I put on a pair of shorts that my mom bought me early this summer. I bought them without trying them on and when I got them home they were too tight to be comfortable. So today I decided I would try them on and WOW, they are lose. I was so excited I decided to take a new pic. So I am gonna post my old ones and the ones from today.
This is when I first started. I took it sometime last year, but I was weighing in at 195lbs. I was almost 1 year past having my daughter so I couldn't believe that I was still this big.
