I have lost 82.4% of what I set out to do and am on my way to a skinnier, healthier me! I have lost 82.4lbs! I am now below 170lbs. This is the first time since I graduated from high school that I have weighed in the 160s (truthfully I think it was grade 11 when I was last here....). And to top it off I am much more fit than I was then.

In high school, I was active, but not necessarily fit. I didn't like sports, I didn't like running, I definitely didn't like gym! I did walk to school, ride my bike (as a form of transportation, including some 50+km rides) and go on hikes. Everything in gym class was competitive, and so I didn't like it. Even running, I was always the last one in, so what fun was that? The only unit in high school gym class (required until grade 10) that I liked was weightlifting and cycling.

Now I run by myself and my competition is me! I can compete against me... I can go a little faster today than I did just a few months ago.

Nutrition - this past week I have been eating at the lower end of my calorie range because I haven't been as active.

Exercise - I haven't gotten in as much as I have in the past, but I am still exercising every day. I have done some strength training, but once again, not as much as I'd like, so will increase this as I feel a little better.

Running - I didn't get any runs in, just a couple of short walks... But that is ok, I will start back next week. Hopefully my lungs will let me and my asthma calms down. I must remember to run with my inhaler now...

Sleep - I have been getting 7-8 hours most nights, although the time change has played havoc with the kids sleep schedules. They still haven't adjusted to the new time....

    emoticon You are an inspiration to others. One thing I have learned through this journey is that you need to keep moving. So when my body does not act right I might have to change gears but I keep moving. I am proud of you on what you have accomplished already. Keep up the good work. emoticon
