Plus Wonder Mutt seems to have an endless amount of energy and I feel guilty if I don't at least TRY to help her burn some of it off!!

I also love checking Facebook or Twitter throughout the day for motivational thoughts from I<3 to Run, Fit Approach, and random fellow WISH'ers. Just knowing we're all battling the same aches and pains makes all the effort seem a little more comforting!

And good luck Mrs. AR on your half!!
Seven pounds away is great! WTG!

I'm in need of some of my own advice and tricks at the moment. Dh is STILL not home from work again (I hate being an accountants wife at year end), DS is whiny and bored of me and I just ate microwaved chicken nuggets with him for dinner because I was so tired. I really need to run tonight but I also just want to pour a glass of wine....

Run a short run, and THEN pour the glass of wine as a reward.

January 4: 2 hour walk
January 5: Walk 1, Run 6, Walk 3: 2 hours 28 minutes

Total minutes: 268

That brings me to 643/3000

As to what motivates me, it's the before and after pictures below. Losing 117 pounds changes who you are and your entire life. Everything has changed for me. I never, ever want to go back to being that person again and if it takes leaving my house and running at 4 in the morning, I will gladly, gladly do it. I also like that it gives me control because eating is something I will probably always struggle with. I run or walk every day so even on my bad days, all is not lost.

I also love the feeling I get - especially after a 10 miler which I do at least once a week (including this morning). I'm not fast at 43 and it takes me a long, long time but the feeling stays with you all day long. You just feel like you can do anything. There is nothing like it for me.
