And now, July 26... (drum roll, please) my weight is down to 153!!
I noticed that the utility company mowed the power line right of way, so I walked that last week. Its so much more "fun" than the monotony of the treadmill. I prefer being outside if possible.
I've been hitting the gym for cardio at least every other day. They've got one of those "Check your blood pressure/body fat" machines. I sat down at that last night. After the workout, my BP was 115/67 and body fat was 23.7 I'm making progress.
The key to it all was making the commitment at the beginning to working out every day. It gave me the jump start I needed. Now, most of my pants can be slid off without unbuttoning them, and shorts that fit me "sausage tight" last summer, are loose.
