So yesterday was a great day. I was down to 129.2 and tested out my new sneakers (a gift from my amazing marathoner friend) on a lovely four mile run that took me about 37 minutes.

I ate like a bird all day, just some fruit and carrots and lots of low/no calorie drinks since I knew I would be going out to have sushi last night.

At dinner, I ordered seaweed salad (my favorite!), a pot of green tea, and three kinds of veggies rolls (only 6 pieces each, rather than fish ones that have 8) - avocado, veggie, and japanese pickle. Unfortunately, I ate it all and had some of those fried noodles that they put on your table while you are waiting for your food.

I was too scared to weight myself this morning because I know all of that salt will cause me to gain two or three pounds of water in an instant.

I also decided to take a photo of myself - since I've noticed a nice trend in the before-and-after department here around Blogger. This is more of a "middle" more than a "before," but my goodness is it a painful reminder of how much work I have left. Considering I wanted to be 125 by Thanksgiving, which is in 10 days...

So I know I have been in worse shape than this, but my thighs are definitely disgustingly huge and my arms will forever be chubby, it seems. I don't know how I am possibly fitting into a size 2/4 right now. Oh, and that tape measure reads 25.5"

4 miles in 37 minutes is amazing! Probably not to you, but it makes me look like a snail...a fat snail :D. Sushi is amazing!!! There's some at a store here that I've had my eye on for the past 2's like one of those cravings that won't leave you alone until you eat whatever it is you're craving. I got paid today so I'm going to have some tonight for sure! Those fried noodles are like the forbidden fruit with Eve- she knew not to eat it, but it was SO good, how could she not?! =)

Hey, you look great! I love the hat in the second picture! Once I'm down to 140 I'll be posting progress pics, but not until then! You can see your ribs in the second pic- 'tis awesome! These aren't scarring photos at all! 25.5 inches is something to be proud of! I'm at 29 right now- I can't wait until I'm at 25. You can totally lose 4 pounds by Thanksgiving!
