Hmmmmm - 2-3 double cheeseburgers and a pitcher of great beer - Any chance this is related to being at a current plateau? Oh course you have to live life.

I went from July 2005 to December 2006 dry as a bone - 2006 was my best year running ever - It wasn't worth it.<br><br>
That being said - There is a happy medium that does involve less cocktails and more fitness.<br><br>
I spent more time in college at 1914 then in classes (It is now called The Eagles Nest) An theother half of the time I was downtown making the rounds - Bearnie on the bottles and a blastoff (RIP Bernie) a stop at the popcorn tavern to watch all the hippies smoke pot, Maybe a fish bowl, maybe a stop at Lindies - usually ending it all at The Dinner"<br><br>
Richard any of that sound familiar<br><br>
Of course I had nothing against "The recovery Room" or Apline and the Cellar at UW-L served beer and would do in a pinch.

Flounder for sure 1 if not not 2 runs a week starts and finishes at the Nest!<img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
the Alpine is now a place best to run to as Bliss road is closed to traffic... but makes a nice 2 mile run up hill the whole way! an more depending on where you start! I like to start at the Nest <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> as that is where my double cheeseburgers are served! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I run for the Love of it... not to be good at it ( easy to say since I know I never will be good at it)... However I do want to run long! and will make small and I mean small sacrifices for that.<br><br><br>
Edited... for accuracy

If someone wanted to offer me free liposuction as part of a demonstration to medical students - I would jump all over it. I know its cheating - But I am getting tired of always trying to lose weight.<br><br>
Before I found running - I used to be very good at losing and gaining - 20-30 pounds per month - Best was 87 pounds in 90 days. I always gained it back.<br><br>
This time with running - I went from @ 300 (7/03) to a low of 185 (9/06) but it is still a constant struggle. Only now with running I usually hit a max of high 230s before I make an intervention. But now I can not lose more than 10# a month.<br><br>
Sorry just venting - Unless you are an excellent - Accrediited plastic surgeon that wants to do pro-bono work <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Its not about body image, just about being healthy and running faster and being more active - so a few scars would be ok.

Just wait until you're pushing 60 ..... seems like the older I get the harder it is to lose the pounds and the easier they come back on! In the past 6 years I've been as high as 250 and as low as 180..... needless to say my best year running since turning 50 was when I was 180..... I even managed to grab some AG awards. My problem has been injuries.... I don't mind cutting back on eating and drinking if I can see results... it's when I'm sitting around injured... there just doesn't seem to be a reason not to pop open a cold one <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> Last summer on the DL with a sciatic nerve acting up, I completely blew my diet by perfecting a margarita recipe .... an easy 30 pounds gained and now I'm struggling to get it back off.<br><br>
Starting weight 205 (3/3/08 )<br>
last week lost -1.5<br>
Current weight 203.5 (3/11/08 )<br>
Goal weight 180 (by 10/15/08 )<br>
(Dream weight 160)
