About a month since last post ... probably 186-188 consistently on scales in the morning (was down to 181-ish after my ride today) ... About 10-12 lbs down from winter high. I think - given that unemployment allows me to keep up the miles - that low 180s is a possibility by next month. That would be nice.
52-week high: 242
I was kind of surprised by the scale this morning to say the least. Last time I went on the South Beach Diet, six years ago, I dropped 15lbs in the first three weeks but I was over 250 then. I didn't expect starting it three weeks ago at 232 to drop nearly 10lbs in the same timeframe. Maybe 215 by 9/16 is doable after all? To be honest, I just plan to keep doing what I am doing and what will be is what will be. I just know I feel better already and I am really f*cking determined.
checking in with everyone... 227ish for me holding steady with majorly reduced workload I guess is a success
Well, since this thread has been bot-necro'd I want to say I am doing a 90-day challenge. This is week 2. I am actually enjoying becoming a morning runner. I am running M-W-F right after the kids head to school (8:10a) but before my 9:30am conference call. That gives me realistically an hour. I'll add a run on the weekend too. Mostly I've decided I am done with trying to build in the summer. I can't do heat/humidity any more. Fall/Winter/Spring for me. No bugs either.
A couple of years ago a friend was locked out of the Seacoast Half and asked if anyone knew any HMs with openings. I suggested the Manchester HM not knowing more about it than my BIL and SIL had done it a few times. I had no idea it was so hilly. Said friend did the race and no longer speaks to me :).
Good luck! :)
