28 months later ... 70 pounds lighter

Two weeks ago when I stood on the scale the morning of November 15, the numbers flashed 254.4.

I weighed myself then, betraying my once-a-month only commitment, because I had a bad week and I felt like I had done some damage. I was relieved to see I was down and not up.

These past two weeks, I have walked almost every single day with last Saturday being my best mileage, clocking 8.83 km in 1 hour and 54 minutes, according to Map My Walk. I consumed no more than 1,700 calories per day. I kept my sugars low, to about 35 grams, and kept my fat intake below 55 grams.

Tomorrow, I am going to push myself to walk 10 kilometres. I suspect I will die.

Being the last Friday of the month and my official weigh-in day, I weighed myself this morning. I was 248.1, but let's round it to an even 248, shall we?

Since there's nothing to hide anymore, here's a before and after comparison:

FLAB-YOU-LESS! < My new word. I just used it on Facebook. If you're also flab-you-less, tell me about it in the comments.

Fantastic. Being somebody who battles his weight constantly and has nowhere near your will power, your accomplishments should not be understated.

Way to get that momentum going into the Holiday season!

I am training for the food, Mark!
Thank you so much for acknowledging how hard this is.

Wow, you walked 120km this month...pretty impressive!

Also, soon enough 10km will seem like nothing! A couple of years ago I slowly worked my way up to my longest walk ever...walking the entire 28km Bloor-Danforth Line. You can do it!
