She's Gonna Run With the Sausages!

So OK, I haven't lost 50 pounds this week like I had hoped, but I did lose three pounds so that's something! 

Runnin' with the sausages
 The newest development in my fat girl saga is that I have been invited to run in a 5K.  What the what?!  I am nervous but also very excited to try it out.  If you are interested in joining me it is the Brat Trot and looks to be a good time!  So now I have to ask, what does one do to prepare for a 5K?  I have been running as much as my schedule will allow.  What else?  If you would leave some comments at the bottom with advice it would be much appreciated.  I have never done anything like this before. 
Now, as I said I have lost three more pounds that puts me under 230!  I am at 229 which means I could slip back above 230 at any time but I am hoping to NEVER see that number on the scale again.

I have lost 36 pounds on this journey, gotta keep going.   OK, time for my favorite part......  What else weighs 36 pounds?

HOLY CARP!  This here fishy weighs 36 pounds
36 Pounds of Fossilized Mammal Bones

This grill weighs 36 pounds.  That's right, I have lost a grill.

Here are 36 pounds worth of tart green apples

Gotta have my drug bust, 36 pounds of pot!
Behold........36 pound Rice Krispy Treat because why not?

And last is my favorite, Su Lin.  Su Lin is 9 and a half months old and weighs 36 pounds in this photo.  She is a very adorable panda bear.  And whenever I see a panda bear, THIS song gets stuck in my head.  Enjoy


  1. I love your blog, I am on a weight loss journey too, I have lost 35 pounds in the last 11 weeks. I can't wait to see how you are doing on your journey:)

  2. I'm very pumped to run with you in the 5K! I'll train with you too, just let me know when you want to run & we'll make it happen (unless you want to run in the mornings when I have Leo, then it probably won't happen). Anywho, you're doing awesome on this journey and I'm proud that I get to be with you as you take your next step (or 5K worth of them)!

  3. Nice to meet you lettersfromlaunna, so much weight lost in 11 weeks sounds crazy! Congrats but be safe.

    Alissa I am so glad you are rocking the 5K with me! I fully expect you and the rest of the gang to out run me but I will do my best to keep up. Once the tax deadline is here I can start thinking about a schedule. Right now I try to get some in on the treadmil in the mornings and some outside in the evenings. Not super great at getting both in right now but that is my goal. I will let you know when I get it going all perfect like.
