My Ultimate Goal

Written by Mommy Cameron | Getting Fit

While I love and enjoy doing triathlons, I am going to be completely honest and say that losing more weight is my ultimate goal.

Back in 2010, I started running to lose weight.  For over two years I ran, a lot and ate healthy, however the nothing changed.  My clothes were still tight.  I was uncomfortable in my own skin.  I was unhappy.  My husband would see how hard I was working and was as baffled as I was about why I could not lose any weight.

At the end of 2012, I competed in my first triathlon and loved it.  While training for my first triathlon I loved the forced cross training.  I loved getting in the pool and swim because I wouldn’t get out all sweaty.  My body felt better because I wasn’t putting it through so much pounding as I was when I was just running.  I enjoyed the new challenge.

So 2013 was spent competing in triathlons.  It was also the first time in 3 years that I was able to lose weight.  Last year from March to November I managed to lose 25 pounds.  That was a huge feat for me.

Sadly I gained 10 pounds of that back during the move and holidays when I wasn’t exercising.  However, I am excited to get back to training because I know that I can lose at least that much, if not more this year.  Slow progress is better than no progress.
