Weigh In #6

It's weigh in time again. I keep waiting for the week when I can say I had a big loss, but it just never seems to come. I lost .5 pounds. I say this every week, but any loss is better than no loss. Right? One of these weeks is going to be my week I can't wait!
Thank goodness I have my pedometer to keep me happy. This week I had 100,923 steps which converts to 50.5 miles. Now, that makes me happy!! Christmas shopping has helped add some extra steps. Yay for shopping!!
I'm having a real battle with myself over this 1/2 marathon thing. There are so many things to consider. I've done two half marathons before in Indy. I walked them both and I had a good time. This is going to sound funny to most of you, but I have never flown before. Do I want to fly for the first time all by myself all the way across the country? Can I raise $3500.? I had a hard enough time raising $350. for the March for Babies last spring. Then there is the fact that I am going to be 55 on Friday. I'm at least 20 to 30 years older than most of the girls in the Sisterhood. I would love to go and do a great job and raise the money and meet all the people that I only know online, but can I really do it? Will my ankle let me do it? Like I said, lots of things to consider. Luckily, I have a few more weeks to think about all these things before I have to commit or decline.
The next three weeks are going to be tough as far as keeping on track with my eating and exercising. There are so many parties and family functions that I have to go to with the holidays. There is also my birthday. I went out last night and tonight already and my birthday is two days away. Lord, please give me the strength to get through this hectic, but oh so happy time. You guys can send a little inspiration my way too! Please!!!


  1. PLEASE tell me more about this 1/2 marathon! I think your .5 pound loss is awesome. The incredible amount of walking you're doing is just beyond wonderful! You keep me totally motivated! I am running my first 10K this Sunday... well, I signed up for it and began my training... but being sick for 2 weeks knocked the crap out of me. I am hoping just to finish... you know, COMPETE to COMPLETE!! AND PLEASE PLEASE FILL ME IN ON THE 1/2 MARATHON!!!!

  2. You can do it... ALL of it Nancy! I'd like to donate to your fundraiser when you start! What huge milestones you will accomplish if you go ahead with the 1/2 marathon! Take a daughter or two with you!! Can't wait to hear what you decide!

  3. Um, yes. You can do it. I know you can!!

    And great job with your miles!!! Holy cow!

    I'm so proud of you, Nancy!

  4. You can do it, Nancy! What a great way to celebrate your 55th year!! And guess what, you only have to raise $2900! They lowered the goal!!! I know it's still a lot, but I know you can do it!!!!

    Wow, that's a lot of exclamation marks :) I'm proud of your loss and your continued losses, Nancy! Slow and steady.......wins the race!

  5. You can do it, but I totally understand about the fundraising.

    Put you had a great week, keep it up girly!

  6. I think you can do it Nancy. If you have to walk all of it, you can do it.

  7. A loss is a loss! You are still doing super! I believe in you. If you really want to do the marathon I say go for it. I can't believe you have never flown before. It is amazing to fly. I have flown a bunch of times and it's the only way to travel.

  8. Any loss is better than none. Hope your birthday was a happy one!!!
