Project Lisa Update October 2015

When changes happen slowly its hard to see - often I have people say to me ‘how great I am looking’ and ‘how I have lost so much weight’, but I guess because I see myself in the mirror every day and my progress has been steady - I don't often see it.  Its not until I see a photo from way back when I first started or compare my measurements from start to now, that I think ‘huh, maybe I am doing ok’.  I think sometimes I am extra hard on myself - often you see before and afters of people but you don't see the ‘in between’ - you don’t see the blood, sweat and tears that made that happen - you see an instant picture of a before and after and even if its dated you don’t really comprehend the time and effort involved - so you sort of expect to get results and get results now!  I have decided not to be hard on myself and to try to stop saying my progress is slow or that I am failing - because I am not failing - how can I be failing if my weight is steadily going down and my confidence is steadily going up?  Thats not failure - that is success!


I am so incredibly grateful to have been given this opportunity to be Project Lisa - it has changed my life.  I have never been more consistent and determined since starting this adventure!
I am now the type of person who actually enjoys being active, I love going for bike rides and walks with the kids, I love going to PT and bootcamps to challenge myself, I love doing Park Runs and fun runs, Ive never been this person and it feels great!
When I first started I couldn't even run 1km - now I can run 5km and my PB is 35.28 mins - I have set myself a goal to get under 35 mins - which is something I am still working towards, running is definitely not something that comes naturally to me - but I keep chipping away at my times and I will get there :)
