Day 1: A Run in the Rain

Maybe my little pity party was what I needed to kick myself in the butt. Driving home in the rain, I remembered how much I enjoy running in the weather.  I walked in the door, put my shoes on and headed out.  I wasn't gone long, but it felt good to get out there.  This was a big step in my return to sanity.  Just about 2 1/2 miles, but it's a start.

I ate well yesterday.  No crazy candy consumption.  Nothing fried.  Lot's of green food and some fruit.  It was a good Day 1. 

I wonder if there's some kind of four year itch after the big loss.  I heard from my buddies Mike in Wisconsin and Dan in New Jersey.  We had found each other through our blogs years ago.  We're all going through similar weight pains, having bottomed out at around the same weight and we're all struggling in the mid/upper 200's now.

We did it before, we'll do it again.  We can and we will.

Thank you for all of your support.

Glad you are back, Jeff. Keep it up. We need to aim to run a race together someday.

You know we will and we will keep taking it one day at at time Jeff. That's all we got. We all know the formula and exercise is the key. Good job getting out there. I ran down to the voting spot last night and back about the same 2.5 miles. No junk food for me either. Just keep taking it a day at time and remember just because you slip doesn't mean it needs to ruin the whole day.

It sucks how it goes on way easier than it comes off.

Jeff, you should know that you are always my hero! You can and will get yourself back into top shape. Your running buddy for life, Katie.

Glad you got back in the "saddle" so to speak.
