I know.  It’s an excuse, but I really want to get back to blogging and I cannot find the time. 

Here’s a recap: Since beginning this journey on November 28th 2007, I’ve lost 44 pounds and can honestly say that it has not been difficult.  Sure, I’ve had set-backs and had old habits rear their ugly heads.  It hasn’t always been pretty.  It certainly has not been fast! But over all, it’s been very peaceful and I’m not doing anything that I cannot do for the rest of my life.  I do an minimum of 6 hours of exercise a week.  With it being about 60% cardio and 40% weight training.  I’m happy to report that I’ve gone from a size 22 to a size 16 and according to my personal trainer have only lost 3 pounds of lean muscle mass!!  So, nearly all the weight I’ve lost is FAT!  As far as a food plan goes, I bounce around between just calorie counting and The Zone.  I lose faster on The Zone - balancing carbs, fat and protein at each meal and snack.  But I don’t always feel like doing it.  In the back of my mind I have July 2009 as the date I would like to be at my goal weight of 160.
