I have kept off 100 pounds for 7 years. I am really proud of that. Here I am enjoying a 10 mile bike ride on my anniversary day.
The day before, I ran 6 miles. The day after I did an arduous 10 mile hike. Here I am January 1, 2005.
I am so proud that I have kept this much weight off. I remember that I could barely walk from my car into the house after work because I was in so much pain from packing all of that weight!
I wish I could say it has been easy to keep the weight off. Once in a while it is effortless, but too often, I battle the urge to pig out on junk food. I am going to post every year on my anniversary so I can get through those tough days (even if I am a little late; last week we moved; didn't have time to post but took time to exercise; love that I have become addicted to exercise). Yesterday I ran 7 miles; today I biked almost 13 miles. I feel so thrilled that I am able to be this physcially active at the age of 65.
