A lifelong overweight couch potato is awestruck in May 2009 when witnessing the runners for a 5k leave the starting line; thousands of people of all shapes and sizes. "I thought running was only for skinny people!" The couch potato realized it was time to get off the sofa and run... no more waiting for skinny, there were no more excuses.
Step one... committing to a number.. from my bathroom :)
It was suggested to me by my Weight Watchers leader to write a weekly goal number on my arm before I weigh in on Saturday morning. I thought that was a great idea, but I had to take it a step further and put it up on my bathroom mirror to look at it all week.
