Maintaining 80 Pound Loss

I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high and I've lost over 50 pounds since Dec. 2008. In 2009 I achieved a healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I always wanted!

I've gained this weight back many times. But now with SP I've learned the relentless determination it takes for long term success! -Marsha

I already have a post-requirement goal: triathlon 70.3 (half-iron). But in the course of reaching that goal, I am weighing the options for the run, and among them is training for and completing a full, building the base for it. Retired, I'd have more time to build that up.

Edited to add: the Boston Qualifying time I looked up for Kevin, and I knew it before he did, pre-Buffalo Marathon last May. And your friend happens to be in the same age group. emoticon

Thank you for the top Marsha. I will look for the article after the kids are done with homework. I jarred it over the weekend. I moved from the knee up and left side over, but my right knee and down just stayed put. Fun!

Thanks for your comment on my "snow" status. Last week I was in St. Petersburg, Florida, on business. I had a chance to run along the bay and ocean. The scenery and the weather was great.

I always make the same mistake running in Florida. I cover ground very quickly because it is far easier to breathe in Florida than at 8,000+ feet in Colorado. Florida is also a lot flatter.

I always get lost running in Florida! I only wanted to run five miles. I actually ran 12 miles trying to find some landmark that would lead me back to the hotel!

I am pathetic.

I can hike into the deep wilderness in Colorado and, without one misstep, find my way directly back to my starting point.

Then I get lost in Florida while running concrete paths where there are street signs and lots of people.

Thanks, Bruce
