7lbs Down and a Workout Partner

It sounds so small when I say it that way. I lost 7 lbs in 5 weeks. That's just a little over 1lb a week. In a year, that would be 52 lbs. I dont think that's too bad of an accomplishment.

Yesterday I posted about what I was going to do about working out after it got dark. I think that was yesterday. A friend of mine decided that she was going to train for a marathon. So I am going to try to train with her.  I told her I'm a horrible runner and that I can't even run 1/4 mile right now. It's horrible. I don't really know if I am going to be able to run the 5k on Thanksgiving. Anyway, Kinsey lives and works in Verona so I can walk/run down the lit streets in Verona with her. Yippie for a partner.


  1. You bet! We'll get there! My goal is the 20 miler from the Capitol to Stoughton! You in? :) I'm all about the cross training - if you are game I do Golds (or will be again) Aqua Boot Camp, Combat, some yoga... No idea how to post on here... so i'm Anonymous, but generally anything but!

  2. Wow! This could be my blog. I weigh almost exactly what you do, I am in my late twenties and I live in Madison, WI too! I have just started my weight loss journey (2 weeks in). I hope we inspire ourselves to lose the weight.

    So glad I stumbled on your blog

  3. Jan, let me know what your blog is, if you have one. I would love to read it! I have no idea how to work this thing to find your email address :-)

  4. I don't have a weight loss blog. Maybe I should start one.

    I don't know how to put my email in. Is there an email on your blog for me to email you?

  5. Jan, I think it's just the limitations that blogger has. Yippie. If you are interested you can email me at
