(On the left at -50 with some other photos from the past year and a half pre-weight loss)
Nathaniel and I took a break from blogging for a variety of reasons…
One of them being there was a series of tragedies in my family and I wasn’t home much as a result. Things were really chaotic and I think what I’ve learned over the past several months helped me abstain from junk food and kept me from rationalizing poor eating habits with “stress” and “sadness” although there was certainly plenty of that.
I lost only a little bit of weight during this time period but Nathaniel gained some pounds (which I am sure he will talk about with you later).
Today – I finally broke the -50 lb. barrier and I am feeling really motivated for the next 10.
I can really tell how much my health has improved when I have a physically strenuous photo assignment because I can jog along with a crowd for so much longer with all of my camera gear on. My camera bag fully loaded easily weighs 20 lbs… but probably more.
Sunday Nathaniel, several of his friends and I are going to be running a 10k in San Francisco. I am a little worried because I am still really slow and my running has really fallen off lately but it should be a lot of fun!
Expect more blog posts this week.
We are back!
