A Waist Is A Terrible Thing To Mind

I turn fifty in five months. I plan to lose thirty pounds between now and then. The reasons are several and varied, some obvious, some somewhat less so. But now that I've stated it for the Google bots to keep in an archive forever, I can't easily back down.

I start at 220.

Wish me luck.

Good luck! Last year I weighed almost 230. Now I'm down to 206 and have stayed under 210 for 4 months now. My goal is also 190 (or to get and stay below 200). My main motivation has been to get in shape for my Philmont expedition next month. I suspect if I'm not below 200 before I leave that I'll be below 200 when I get back!

And yes, it's a long way from the Inter-fat challenge. ;^)

Yes, I don't think I'll see 163 anytime soon again. Or wear those, ahem, clothes.
