Less, Later

I got a welcome surprise when I stepped on the scales this morning. I'm down to 210 pounds. I know that's still heavy but at one time I weighed 223 (and maybe more).
All I've done is push away from the table instead of going in for seconds. I'm drink more water and fewer brewsky's. I've upped my exercise to an average of 30 minutes a day of brisk walking. Many days I walk 45 minutes to an hour. I feel great!
I know it's easy to backslide. I've seen it happen to so many people. I'm not saying it won't happen to me, but I can tell you that it is my intention to be mindful of my weight.
After all, what good is retirement, if your not healthy enough to enjoy it.
More later - or maybe I should say less later.

  1. Well done - you're getting there. It's the walking that helps you know...
    Oh yes, and a word about anchovies that you hate so much. I think you should never eat them again - a thought that I'm sure will upset you - as they are now on the threatened fish species list!!
