Another year has gone by… It’s weird now though. Last year was a huge year filled with change (http://nicolemichelles.com/2014/08/04/2-year-fit-versary/). This year a lot has changed. I have hit a point in my weight loss that the scale tends to stay the same and the gains I’m achieving are different. This year has been about goals like completing marathon #1, marathon #2 & #3 back to back, Insanity Max 30, Kayla Bikini Body Guide and now training for marathon #4.
Mentally this change has been a little wearing. It’s hard to be on such a journey of weight loss and then you reach a point where your body is content. You are putting in effort and still feel stunted because the number doesn’t really change. I realize this is the point that everyone hits and every step is that much harder BUT it’s still discouraging mentally nonetheless.
It has most definitely been a long road though. When we moved to North Carolina, I was miserable and obese. Three years later, I am a three time marathoner and training for another marathon & an ultramarathon. I do not even recognize the old me in pictures as myself anymore. I cannot remember that way of life.
