Note: For those of you who are sick of hearing about my weight loss, skip this post and move on!
I was talking with a friend in SC yesterday, and realized I'll be back to visit in about 8 weeks. In 7 weeks Connor will be one, and I have yet to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight (and shape). So this friend and I decided that we would support each other in an experiment of sorts. I just read an article that was on http://www.providentliving.org/ advocating running 20 miles per week for healthy adults under 50 and had decided to make that my goal. (To read the whole text of the article, click here.) After talking to my friend, we also committed to giving up desserts for the next 8 weeks, but otherwise eating in our normal, mostly healthy way and either walking or running 20 miles per week as recommended. So to make this official I even had Olivia take a "before" picture of me this morning to compare it to. I'll post an update in 4 weeks, and then another in 8 weeks to show how successful it turns out to be.
