Well, it’s been awhile since the “Are you a bigger loser than Marko?” contest ended. I’ve continued toward my goal of reaching 185 pounds. As of yesterday morning, I weigh 203 pounds – for a total loss of 48 pounds since the Super Bowl. Not too bad! Things are progressing slower now than I’d like, but I’m making progress. I have 8 weeks left before we fly to Texas for vacation. I’d love to reach my goal by then, but realistically, I’m probably looking at being around 195 by then – and finally reaching my goal by mid-December. I can live with that, but I’m shooting for October 1st! I’m seriously debating whether to start running. My main concern is whether my knees will be able to hold up (I wasn’t kind to my knees growing up). We’ll see. Whatever I decide to do, I must start eating a little better. I’ve been lax with my portions at times and with my food choices. A little discipline in that area might just go a long way!
