A month ago that seemed impossible. Here is the issue. This is very close to my tipping point - the weight I stopped at last time I was losing. I got to about 168 - 169 and I just sort of sputtered out of gas. Granted, I maintained fairly well for that two years, but dang... It is so odd to think that I less than 10lbs from 160 - which I have always thought of as a different world... a place where I actually felt somewhat confident in myself... a place I havent been since college.

I feel now like it could actually be possible that I could see 160 this summer... maybe even my July, as was my original plan.

I have been out of state, on vacation, for the past two weekends. The first one saw a lot of activity... I actually hiked/jogged 3 or the 4 days I was there. Last weekend I jogged 2 of the 4 days, but did a lot of walking around town. However, I also drank -kind of a lot- each weekend. I've really been trying with food... and I don't normally drink, but on vacation it is harder to say no.

I was worried that I would come back with a 4lbs gain. Amazingly enough it was a .4lbs loss. Just hoping I can ramp it back into high gear this weekend... Did about 6 miles of combined walking and jogging today. Feel pretty good. Food today was decent. Need to go input all my calories, but I know when I am on track and today I was.

Keep it up... Keep it up.
