yes, that's right. I said it. College was mean to me, and (like an idiot) I started to eat school food instead of packing my lunch. Another teacher and I both gained 10 lbs just by doing that!
So anyway, the reason I'm telling you this is that I now have a resolution...
I've long ago decided to try year-round bike commuting, but now that it's warmer, I can start doing this seriously, instead of 2-3 times a week. Today was day 1. We're taking it a day at a time, and hopefully, by next August, I'll be down 35-40 lbs, and will be back at my high school fighting weight.
This summer, I hope to work at a camp that I usually work at, and it's good for a 10-20 lb weight loss (no kidding), and by doing a 19 mile/day commute, longer rides on the weekends, and upper-body weight exercises, I think it's completely doable.
So, I'm telling you guys, because I need some accountability, and if I tell people, even if they don't harp on me, it'll keep me motivated to prove that I CAN do it.
BTW, just as a number, I'm going for 35 lbs by August 1, and 40 lbs by September 1.
