The Proof Is in the Jersey Size…

It has been a WHILE since I have posted. Life man…just life. Last weekend me and the hommies participated in the Seahawks 5K in Renton. It’s were about 20,000 crazy Seahawk fans get dressed up and get their exercise on for some local charities. I have done it every year they have had it and this year I SLOGGED it (SLOG= SlowJog). I didn’t slog the whole thing…I did intervals of slogging and walking but I SLOGGED it more than I walked it! I was and am very proud of myself. That was the first time in my life where I had the energy and endurance and fitness level to do any kind of slogging for any sustained amount of time. Crossing that finish line running was a first…and it will not be the last.

I am coming up on my 1 year 30/10 sign up date. And it has been a YEAR. Releasing my weight has been the biggest struggle I have ever faced or perhaps ever face. Basically, it has been WAY harder than I thought it would be. It HAS been worth it. It has been worth every moment of sadness and despair, every craving and disappointment. I have stuck with it and maintained my lower weight…the numbers have been down more than they have been up and THAT I am very proud of. The proof is in the jersey size 🙂

Thank you again to everyone who has supported and continue to support my journey.

  2. Hey April! I found your blog a few months ago as I was researching 30/10. I’ve been on the program since 3/4 and have lost 27lbs. I’m trying to lose 40. I wanted to make you aware of something I just found out about–not sure if you’ll be interested but others might be. There’s a website that sells the exact same food–exact! After I finish my contracted 12 weeks, I’m going to go it alone with the food from this site and what I’ve learned at 30/10. Here’s the link
    Choose “Nutriwise” under brands and you’ll find all the same food. It’s a huge cost savings. One of my biggest negatives to 30/10 has been the people in the clinic. I’ve gone for 10 weeks and they still ask my name. There has been no relationship built and very little encouragement. I feel like it’s hard for me to go each week and I’d rather go it alone. My husband has been an incredible encouragement, but for the money I feel like the people in the clinic should at least fake it. Ha! (I’ve been going to Everett). Anyway, not sure if this will help you or save some money. Thanks for all your updates and info…your blog really helped get me off dead center and start this journey. I feel so much better and know I’m healthier! God bless you and keep going on your own journey!
