OK.  9 weeks and 90 lbs.  I am trying for 10 weeks and 100 lbs.  So, while this week was great and it is behind me, the challenge is ahead. I am determined to work really hard this week.  By working hard I mean I have to up the amount of exercise.  Really right now that means walking and swimming.  I am playing football this year and I have practice starting at the end of this week and that exercise should be very good, but it will come too late for Week 10.  I must say at this point that I have more energy than I have had in a very long time.  I thought it was because I was getting older… Not old but rather older. Now, I am realizing that it was my weight that was making me tired.  I am getting out and my family is doing more.  I used to sit in a chair and fall right asleep. I never do that anymore. I used to sleep only a few hours a night. Now I love my 8+ hours. My feet hurt and they don’t anymore.  Things are falling into place.  I do think the weight loss is soon to slow down, but I am picking up the energy and the exercise and maybe that will offset the slower pound-age.  I am actually looking forward to the challenge of the week ahead. Even if I don’t hit that silly number next week, it will not elude me for long!

This week is -8.6 lbs.

Starting Weight: 449.8 lbs.
