    66.6# Lost, Over Half Way There!

    Over the last 2 weeks of camping, kayaking, (strenuous) gardening W/some biking mixed in, I dropped an additional 7.4# taking my total since the 1st of the year to 66.6#.

    I weighed in @ Weight Watchers Saturday morning @ 255.2#, a far cry from the 321.8# I weighed in January when we joined.

    I also added another hole to my belt making a total of of a bit over 6" shorter belt when buckled.

    After about 6 weeks on XC skiing @ the beginning of the year, I started pedalling on March 18th. Since then I've logged a bit over 1,700 miles & taken off just over 41#.

    Time to get on the "Ab Lounge" to tighten up my belly. We're also considering a weighted "Hula Hoop" to further tone the midriff.

    I am thinking of lowering my goal weight to 190#, but if I can get to a 34" waist @ 200# I'll settle for that.

    Awesome! Sounds like you're working really hard and it's paying off.

    Great job. I'm back to work and unable to ride more than a few times a week. I've got today off so I'll be out riding later. My hip prevents me from riding much more than a few miles at a time but at least I'm out there trying. Can't wait until I get the new hip and can do greater distances.

    If it's anything like my knee, getting it replaced will change your life~! Best thing I have ever done, and am up to 30 mile rides now...

    That's what I've heard Peter. My mother has had one hip done twice and both knees done. She's 79 and still walks 1/2 -- 2 miles a day. My hip problems must be part hereditary. Hope to have it done at the end of the year.
