If not now, when?

Weighed 230 lbs in November 2011. Now weigh 140. Lost 70 lbs from November 2011 to November 2012. Hit goal of 90 lbs lost on April 16, 2013. Celebrated one year of maintenance on April 16, 2014. Fell down between November 2013 and June 2014 and gained back 27 pounds. Back on the wagon officially as of June 16, 2014 (see blog!)

Did it all on my own: no fad diets, no paid programs, no nutritionist, no personal trainer! All done with food lifestyle changes, and I took up running in July 2012.

Have run several 5Ks, race PR is 26:23.5. 10K PR is 57:43. First 15K was in August 2013 with a 1:34:25. I ran my first half marathon in October 2013 and, despite recovering from an injury, finished in 2:42:34.

I'm a 29-year-old professional meeting planner and live just outside of Chicago. I'm also a grad student, getting a master's in sports administration.

I fancy myself a "real" runner and religiously devour Runner's World and Women's Running (and usually Women's Health and Fitness) magazines monthly! I blog at http://www.fatgirlrunn.com

But my real religion is hockey and I am a big Washington Capitals fan!

That is such an inspiration. I just lopped off 10 pounds by cutting out cookies and cutting down carbs, increasing fruits for snacks, yogurt, jello.

I know we need to go out walking more, at least.

It's wonderful to know it can be done!

Thanks so much for sharing what you do.
