My name is Anna and I have always been overweight. I have finally decided it is the right time to shed the pounds and feel better about myself! I want to be able to run a half or full marathon by my birthday next year, 2012.

I would also love to be in shape to keep up with my Army man. Possibly run a quicker mile than him, this is my ultimate goal!!!

I have lost about 40 pounds before but now I have 45 more to lose! Got to get back to eating right and exercising! We can all accomplish our mission, let's stick together!

UPDATE: Only have 38 more pounds to go!!! WOOHOO

    The scale will not tell you when you are adding muscle, so that could very well be the issue. You are losing fat, but gaining muscle from your exercising. That's assuming you are measuring your food to track it so that your nutrition tracking is accurate.

    But the bottom line is: you are doing the healthy things and that WILL translate into weight loss, fitting your clothes better and a healthier you!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
