Weigh In - Month 2 / March for Babies

So I got weighed and measured on friday. My weight has not changed, but I lost 2.25 inches. I was pretty frustrated when I saw the numbers. I had myself siked for big numbers and I should not have done that. I am retaining water, building muscle, and my body is changing. Among all of that, I am still losing inches so I am going in the right direction.

Today was the March for Babies through the March of Dimes. This was my first charity walk ever. My original team did not go so we created a new team with Sheryl and Lisa Toscano called the Four Kids. I have never walked past a mile and this was 3.5 miles. The first 1/2 mile my legs were burning very badly and I regretted NOT stretching. They had the 1 mile sign in the wrong place and was quite discouraging. At about 1 1/2 miles I started crying...lol I DID NOT think that I was going to make it. EVERYTHING was hurting or already numb and there was no end in sight. Then I saw the 2 mile sign. By this time nothing was hurting and everything was numb, and I was using my cane. Even though we started near the front of hundreds of people, there were only a few behind me now. I can not tell you how many fire police asked me if I needed a ride back to the college. I must have looked pretty pathetic...lol. But when I saw that 2.5 mile sign, I perked up and moved my butt! I wanted to stop sooo bad, just for a minute...but if i did, I would not finish so I kept going. When I heard the music I knew I was almost there. I told myself that I did not care how long it took or if I was dead last, but that I was going to finish. We were NOT the last to finish. There was one small group behind us, and we finished in a little over 1.5 hours. I am so proud of all four of us. AND I walked the whole way with a HUGE blister on the bottom of my foot! OUCH!
