That said, I did take off a few more pounds since August just by refusing to eat like a total cow every single day (just most days) and through waiting tables, which keeps me on my feet 20-30 hours a week. I was at 251.8 at the end of December. I decided to start back up hard-core with the New Year, and I'm happy to say that I've taken off over 4 lbs already. My weigh in today put me at an even 247. I would love to get into the 230's by February and then drop 10 pounds a month from there, getting into the 190's by June. The day my weight starts with a 1 will be a very glorious day. I will probably cry.
That's about it. I started doing Couch to 5K yesterday to increase my running speed. My goal is to make 11 minute miles my standard pace. Over the summer I could run several miles at a time, but I "ran" at a walking pace of about 15 minutes per mile. I think that's fine but I would like to push myself and be able to run fast enough to where I could potentially run with other people (like a running buddy). Finding someone around my age to run 15 minute miles with isn't that easy. Once I make my goal (run 3 miles at 11 minute average) I'm going to start running with the Nike+ Run Club, which runs every Thursday along the lake. I can't wait :)
