My brain usually works in bullet points. So here is what is going on lately.
- I have my 60 mile walk this weekend!! Since I haven't trained as much for this as last year, it is going to be much more difficult (even if I am probably 80 pounds lighter from that time).
- My brother and his girlfriend visited me this weekend. This is the brother that had WLS and is now down 150 pounds (with about 100 to go)! He looks great. He told me at the airport that he barely recognized me and I told him the same thing.
The important thing about the vacation here this weekend was that I ate relatively well and we got plenty of exercise walking around city.
- Every pound that I lose now seems extra special since I am SO CLOSE to goal. The lowest that I've seen on the scale was 205.4 and that was a few days ago. I might hit a new low again before the walk, but I know the scale will be up for about a week or so after the Komen. There is always significant water retention after doing something like that, but I'm looking for a nice "swoosh" into new territory a week or so later
- I'm attaching a couple of picture of me and my friend Cheryl from this weekend. I used to avoid the camera like the plague, but I don't mind now.
Starting weight/ Current low weight/"redline" weight
Total: 267.6 pounds.
I will do the Komen 60 mile walk for breast cancer again this year!!
Next goal is 175: Pounds from goal = 4.2
