Weight loss in the right direction - DOWN

First off I was able to get out and get in a one hour run in this am. I discovered that If I get up at 4am and I can be at the gym and on the treadmill by 4:30am for an hour run and get to catch up on the news. When I got up, I did my usual routine and got on the scale, (who is one of my new friends, although still on probation) and he told me that I am looking marvelous. Oh yea he also said that I now weigh 185.0! WOW, I have not weighed that much in years (and lots of them).




Well, the new medicine that the Dr has me on has done a number on me, like 12 lbs in 11 days. That is more than a pound a day. At this rate, I should be light enough to be blown across the track at Across the Years.
I have about 15-20 lbs to go, which will put me at about 10% body fat, and I can then restart on building lean muscle mass. I would like to have my body in top physical, mental, and spiritual shape with no problems of cholesterol, excess fat, stress, etc.

I'm going to have to start saving for that seafood dinner at this rate. You've almost caught me, even with my 1 1/2 pound loss last week.

And don't worry if you get blown off the track at ATY... there's a fence. ;-)

Congrats on your weight loss!!! What magic pill does your doctor have you on, I am curious. I am on phentermine but it does NOT work wonders like that?!?

I used to hate seeing the "4" on the clock next to "AM", but it's a great time to get a workout in.

Holy crap that's a ton of weight. Nice going!
