Woo!  I reckon that this is roughly my lightest in about 7 years.

Was not sure what to expect this week.  First week at the new job and first week fully cut back to normal workout routine.  So far so good.  The commute now includes 15 minutes of solid walking each way (about .8 of mile each way), though crowds, traffic lights and a desire not to get to working dripping in sweat mean the pacing is a little erratic.  Definitely was feeling it the first few days (carrying a laptop + personal effects in).  The other good news is the new cafeteria offers what is a called a “Whole+Sum” lunch style option similar to this one.  Hopefully they vary up the options each week, otherwise that could get tiresome.

  1. Well done J! And you’ve only got 15.5 to go, that’s incredible!

  2. Wow! You are destroying your weight loss challenge. Great job.

  3. thanks all – 15.5 to the end of phase I is feeling real good (final 10 countdown will feel even better). but realistically, I’ve got 2 more phases to go before maintenance phase.

  4. Congrats! Getting so close to your target. At an average of 2lb per week you will achieve your goal long before xmas.

  5. What an amazing feeling – being lighter than you have been in 7 years. And you’ve come so far… I know you are saying you have a while to go, but congratulations on all of your work to date. It’s so easy to get discouraged (HELLO?!) so your commitment is inspiring!

  6. Each pound gets you one step closer! You are doing great!
