Running is paying off!

I am so glad that I have been able to be somewhat consistant with my running lately, because it has really started to pay off BIG TIME! Seriously, I pulled out a box of clothes yesterday. You know that box of skinny clothes that you just can't seem to part with because you KNOW that you are going to get back in them SOMEDAY! Most of these clothes are pre-Max (the pregnancy that I gained the most and kept the most on afterwards). And I am happy to say that I have fit everything that I have tried on! YEEEHAW! So, these are not clothes I wore before Joelle or anything (I seriously got rid of all of that, that is a long ago dream that I don't even aspire to), but I havent' seen this weight on the scale or this size clothes in 5 years! Wahoo!

Thanks for letting me share =}

Isn't running the BEST! I'm so proud of you Christine! You should run the Pi Mi 5K with me and Jana and Michelle on Oct. 11th. I'll try and dig up the info if you're interested.

PS - I tagged you. 2nd post down on my blog!
