That's the altitude of the mountain I want to climb next summer. I figure this can be my long term goal. I'm actually looking forward to it. For now I've broken down my goal into little things. I bought myself a new Stephen King book that I'll give to myself when I've lost 10 pounds. Then I'll find myself another little treat for another 10 pounds. I figure I can lose all the weight I need to lose if I keep it down to simple manageable steps. Walking on the Treadclimber every morning and lifting weights and dancing in the evenings is a good way to go. Last night we went out to dinner and I ordered something sensible for dinner. Nothing that I couldn't handle without feeling guilty about it today. The thing about this particular mountain is that on the top of it I can dig for my own birthstone. i figure it will mean a lot more to me if I go up there and find my own birth stone. I'll not be stopping in a store here in the city and getting it. How amazing is that? I'm actually excited about it. This weekend I'll get the rest of the equipment set up and really get to work. The bike and the stepper will become parts of my routine. I do feel better when I exercise so I think this is a good thing. WOO HOO! Excited to finally have a long term goal set up.

    It's Mt Antero down by Salida. It's part of the Sawatch range that apparently stretches from one end of the state ot the other. I figure a year out is a good plan. My doctor thinks it's a wonderful idea.
