Holy cow, that's fast! My 16mins/mile speed with C25K includes 10 mins of walking, but still. Great job!!

It might have been a fluke but I'm pretty proud nonetheless!! Today's jog/walk was slower, about 14min/mil, but I'm gonna chalk that up to being sore from my first day of yoga yesterday lol

Thanks!! Congrats on your progress too!!

So I did my first run on Saturday. 2mi.

Place (women): 64 Time: 27:36 Pace: 13:48

My time was so much better than I thought it'd be! :D And I could have kept going. Which is a good thing, because I'm signing up for my first 5K - 8/15.
Also, I'm so freaking proud of my husband. He's hasn't had surgery, but he's been supporting me every step of the way and getting healthier too. He's down 60+lbs to 215 now.
Place (men) 102 Time: 21:53 Pace: 10:56

Sunday I will be doing my longest duathlon so far. 5K run 30K bike and another 5K run. Did my last push of training this morning. I know I will likely be the slowest but I know I will finish!

First 5K tomorrow. So freaking excited!

Also registered for a 5K 9/12 and a mini marathon (4 miles) 11/23. Signing up for these runs well in advance is a real motivator. I'll make my one year surgiversary 12/10, so the mini-marathon is perfect timing.

I agree - signing up ahead is great incentive. Today I did my first 5k since my surgery three and a half months ago (the one I walked three years ago doesn't feel like it counts any more!). My time today was kinda lousy, but I met my goal of finishing in under an hour and without injury or pain. My pace was 15.17/mile and 47.02 total, so my goal for the next month is to get to 5k in under 40 minutes. Unfortunately I work on Sunday mornings, and at least half the runs out there are on Sundays -- still, that leaves the other half!

I'm looking to do my first 1/2 marathon in February. I've never done any sort of marathon but I really want to try. Does anyone have any tips in terms of nutrition? I'm 2 months post-op with RNY.

For me it's all about walking, hiking and backpacking and where the next adventure is going to take me. For the last 6 months I have been training for a recent backpacking trip to Colorado. We had a blast! Now I am training for an easier trip to the Ouachita Mountains next month. I love the outdoors!! Always looking for a new adventure. Next year my wife and I are planning some hikes in the Smoky Mountain National Park and a small segment of the Appalachian Trail.

My daughter is training a team for the local Tough Mudder here - which I've wanted to do since i learned about them. She's pushing me to pick one and train for it, so i'm thinking Chicago May 9-10 in 2015. Anyone else interested?

I completed and rocked the Dirty Girl 5K mud run a few weeks ago.

Onward: I signed up for the Tunnel-to-Towers 5K in NYC at the end of September, a local neighbors 5K on raise funds for her son'a medical condition in October and the Baltimore Color Run 5K in November. I also want to do the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning at my parents place in NY.

Lots of plans and big plans to rock them all!! :)

I am 60 days out and I just finished a Diva Dash yesterday. It was extremely difficult but excellent training for the Sparta Race this November.

My second 5K event starts at 6:50 tonight. I'm confident that I'll beat my best time (46 minutes).

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
