218.2 - X = 157.4

X = 60.8

Because that's how much weight I've lost. I crossed that 60-pound barrier! Now, on to 65...

In other news, I did my first interval workout today for my first day of half marathon training. Unfortunately I was forced indoors due to rain and had to do it on a treadmill. While not as nice as being outside, the treadmill allowed for a more precise level of control over my pace. I wanted to do each 400m interval at an 8:00/mile pace (7.5 mph) and doing so required no more than pressing a few buttons every couple of minutes. It certainly kept me right on track!

So this is it. I'm off and...running...and on my way to that sub two-hour half. Fredericksburg, Virginia, here I come!

amazing and inspiring....you have inspired me to get below 200 from my current 205 by end of february. it's that goal that has been just out of my reach for some time now as after going from 235 to 203, i've been floating between 205 and 210 for quite a few months...my new mantra: STEP AWAY FROM THE COOKIES!!!!
