Well, much to my amazement, I hit the halfway point to my (first) goal this morning. I'm now down 11 pounds. I'm aiming for 160 lbs, and hopefully I'll be there by the end of July. Until the last few days I wasn't sure I could do it. This week has made me much more confident.
I'm starting to think about stage 2. Either I'm going to go for 150 lbs or I'm going to try the personal trainer thing and gain some muscle. If you've seen me you know my upper body is basically muscle free at this point.
We'll see where I am in August. It looks like I'll be on a short vacation in NYC at the end of July, hopefully I won't backslide too far while I'm there.
I've run a total of seven miles this week. I'm starting to think about running a half marathon somewhere next spring. I know if I get the running in I can do it. This is where my muscle-free body helps :)
Starting Weight: 181.8 lbs
Weight 6/2/11: 170.6 lbs
