With a couple of announcements.
#1 – I have joined a running group! I’m so excited and somewhat terrified to be joining the Proverbs 31 Running Club! It’s a brand new running club in Houston for Christian women. Their inaugural group run is Saturday at 7 a.m. I’ll definitely post more about it later.
#2 – I am down to my wedding day weight! I weighed myself at the gym last night and was pleasantly suprised to see a number on the scale that I haven’t seen in almost SIX years. You can read here about why I don’t own a scale or weigh myself with any regularity. I decided that it had been a while and I had a feeling that I might have been down a little based on how my clothes fit (or hang may be the more appropriate term). I am now at 145 and at my height (5′ 5 1/2″) I’m now at a “healthy” BMI of 23.8. This was my goal weight when I first started my journey. Now that I’ve reached it I think I can actually lose a bit more body fat. I don’t intend to switch to maintenance mode so we’ll see what happens.
Not an announcement, but a question/something to ponder. Two people pointed out yesterday that I’m starting to “look a little thin in the face”. There was deinfinitely an implication that it wasn’t meant as a compliment. I’m not sure how I should have responded but I said something along the lines of always losing weight in my face and upper body first and that I wish I could tell my body to let go of some thighs and butt. It was a half hearted attempt at lightening the mood.
Honestly, I know that I’m nowhere near too thin. I just happen to have extremely prominent collar bones, wrists, etc. I actually like the way they look. How would you have responded to comments like that?
