WAHOO! Another mini-goal met!

And on the last day of the month!

I lost another pound even to reach (and exceed) my goal. My goal was to hit the 160-gone mark by the end of the month -- and I did it!! With that, I have now lost 160.6 pounds --- just 82.4 more to go!

It's going a little more slowly because I'm not exercising every single day. It does make a difference. January has had butt-cold weather and not having "insulation" doesn't help. We know fat insulates us from many things -- but one of the good things about fat is that it DOES act as a physical insulator. Now that I don't have as much, I stay cold. And when I'm cold, all I want to do is hibernate. Today -- cold, cloudy, and horridly windy. No way was I walking on lunch hour!

I need to step up the biking at home. Just make myself do it more often. I know I slack up and 3 days of exercise isn't as beneficial as 5. So my goal for February is to exercise at least 5 out of the 7 days for 30 minutes at a time. AND to do the weights more than just once a week..... Weight training does help, tremendously!

So onward and downward!

This is so fabulous! I am so happy for you and so proud to know you. If you can find a Body Sculpt class, I bet you would love it--weight training and cardio in one short hour. You are such an inspiration!
