More Motivation

I am signing up for a 15k (9.3 miles) race on the 4th of July!
I started my training plan and I don't have any specific goals set yet, but I do know that my biggest challenge in this training period is not the number of runs, cross-training sessions, strength-training sessions, etc. I have before me, rather, the extra pounds (lbs, #s) I've been carrying around with me.
I know that I've come so far in my weight loss journey, but there's just this extra ~10 pounds that has been hanging around for many months. I go up and down 3-4 pounds constantly, but have been at a plateau for too long. It's gotta come off.
I know for me, exercise alone is not the key. I need to control what goes in my mouth or I will continue on this 3-4 # roller coaster.
So from this point forward, I will post my weekly weight loss (I might follow a cute idea I found on another blog called "WIW," or weigh in Wednesday). I can't bring myself to post my actual weight, but pounds lost (or gained) I can handle.
I'm gonna need some motivation, so here's some to start:

Go AIM!!! You can do it!! I am finding myself at summer, and busy with soccer schedules, travel plans, FUN busy days. The workouts are taking a backseat, but haven't gotten out of the car yet ;) I know I need to readjust but somedays the lure of kicking back gets the best of me. Inevitabley though....within a few days, I miss it. "Trust the run"... I like it! Good luck. Haven't forgotten about camping!!!
