edited August 2015 in Success Stories
I know it's not a dramatic amount of weight loss to be posting in success stories, but I feel like it's a success, personally! I'm not stopping any time soon and I can finally see results, which just motivates me to keep going! I'm hoping to start the Couch to 5k thing soon because we have a company FitBit Challenge coming up that I'd really love to excel in!

NSVs that I've noticed:

I can now bend over in my chair at work to plug my charger into the usb without getting halfway on the ground.

I can paint my toes without having to do crazy contortionism.

I don't have to use the hand rails on stairwells anymore. (I thought that was an odd one. I had no idea how much I was putting on my knees just trying to descend the stairs.)

I get to buy new shoes because mine are now too big.

I can wear jeans that don't cause so much droopy pancake butt.

I'm not consistently sweating.

I want to park farther away because I enjoy the walk.

I have more energy and have become more social. I'd stay at home a lot because I was ashamed of myself. I was struggling with some pretty major depression and it's like all of that has started fading away.

Most importantly, I'm a thousand times happier with myself and my life and if that's the result of "only" 30 lbs, I can't wait to lose more!

    This is.awesome. Great job so far. I've just finished c25k training this morning and you should totally try it. Just take it slow and your pace. I think it's suppose to be 8 weeks but it took me about 12. Life and such got in the way, but I felt good running my 3.1 miles this morning. :-)
