Weight Watchers 5k Challenge

10 weeks I started Weight Watchers. So far I have lost 13.2lbs! So a little over a pound a week. It's a slow progress but weight loss is weight lost. This summer they had a 5k challenge. So today for our area we had our 5k at a river trail. It was hot, but the trail was next to a river and there were a lot of shady spots, but we still got a good sweat in.

The boys were so excited for the walk and they did WONDERFUL! We got them their own little fans for the walk and I think that helped them a bunch.

Travis was such a good sport! He has always supported me with anything that I wanted to do, with Weight Watchers and my quilting fetish. When I told him that there was a 5k and that we were going to do it as a family, he didn't complain one bit even though he knew it could be hard with the boys and it would be hot! I love you honey!

We would have a chase game with Brandon and Kimball. Nathan was tired so he stayed in the stroller. But Kimball thought it was so fun to chase me. So we got a little jogging in too!
As we passed the river Travis saw fish! At first we thought it was trout but later we found out that they sucker fish. There were so many and they were huge!

Here is my certificate of achievement. I will also get a little charm. This is my second 5k race that I finished. The first one I did do it with my family and we were DEAD LAST! This time we were not last! We did have a lot of stop and goes because of the boys and we did start out as the last people because right before they started Brandon decided that it was time to go potty. We finished the race in 1 hour. Very good for a family of 5!

Congratulations on your weight loss. I know how hard it can be. I, too have been trying to lose weight. So far I am down 74lbs which is good.

Congrats on the weight loss! Losing weight is losing weight and I think that when you lose it slowly over time, you're less likely to gain it back. Congrats! Your husband sounds like a real gem.

Congratulations on your walk and 1pound a week is great. Slow and steady is more likely to stay off. Those beautiful boys are the best reason to stay healthy.
