19.2 pounds and counting...

As of this morning, I am officially down 19.2 pounds.

I am feeling better every day. Seriously.

I feel better about my body and I feel healthier. I know I was recently just sick, but I feel like part of why I rebounded so quickly is because I've been taking care of myself.

So, what might you ask is working for me? (This seems to be the question people want to know most.)

Eating well and healthy.

The easiest way for me to keep track of what I am eating is by using the My Fitness Pal app.

I eat what I want, but I eat it in much smaller portions now. I drink lots and lots of water too.

Exercising.
I am still running. Because I'm in the magical Week 10 of the semester, I've had to cut down how many times a week I am running. Starting this week, I'll run 4 times a week and then on the days that I'm not running, I try to up my water intake. 

Encouragement.
This last one is more important than I can ever put into words. I get encouragement through my family, friends, my husband, blogs I read of success stories, Biggest Loser, The Twitter and Instagram.

When they encourage me, it helps and pushes me to keep going and to not become complacent with the hard work I've done already.

And I want to take this time to say that if you know someone who is trying to lose weight, be generous with your love and support. It is so hard to keep going some days.

Hope this finds you well.

Happy Sunday!
