Great job, spark!
I can relate to feeling stuck, slap. I started around 210 and have now been around the low 180s for what seems like forever. Want to eventually hit 175.
I bet running longer distances will help.
On the road back
To be honest, I didn't actually change too much of my eating habits. I just ran more and more and worked up to 50-60 mile weeks. From running more I felt healthier and want to eat healthier as a result. I used no secret diet techniques and it took me 2 years to lose the weight... just lots of running in between!
But I did hit many plateaus. 172, 161 seemed to be the levels that were hard to breach. It seemed that I lost ~20lbs every year, for every long distance race I did. I don't think its a coincidence.
You guys can do it! Run lots (safely) and eat healthy!
...oh yeah... and post pics
I have a love/hate relationship with running. I do it, but sometimes I love to hate it.
