Well I made it! I am half way to my weight loss goal.
On Thursday I stepped with trepidation onto the scales and there it was. It had taken the whole week (it felt like the whole week) to get there, but a stone and a half has gone. That, it turns out, is a jeans size!
Am I feeling healthier? Sort of: I'm pretty tired and so need a break that its hard to tell right now. But I move better and feel stronger: and I'm starting to plan my next big challenge...
In weight loss terms its 6 pounds to the next milestone. Then another pound until I am two stone in!
And its at that stage (during Lent) that it gets serious for the last push.
The other challenge: the Dales Way, 70 miles in four days (though could I do it in three?).. am thinking just after Easter!
Bring it on!
