Fat to Fit at 59

My quest to lose 50 pounds in 150 days. (Now that you know about it, I'm committed.)

Day 76—Half-Way Weigh-In January 30, 2010

It's drum roll day—again.

I’m amazed that I’ve already reached the half-way mark in my 150-day quest to lose 50 pounds. And it’s evident from the chart below that unless I do something drastic (does The Biggest Loser have an opening??),  I’m not going to be achieving that goal.

And yet, I’ve achieved other goals:

1. To be more aware of my health and fitness, and do more to be better to myself

2. To form a community of sorts to help and support each other

3. To give myself a daily writing fix

4. (I hope) to stir a chuckle or some other pleasant emotion in you

So thanks for reading, thanks for contributing and thanks for helping ME out. I’m not giving up (6.6 pounds is less than I’d hoped for, but it’s still loss)! Start that drum roll…

    Keep on it! What are you going to do different in the 2nd half that you didn’t do in the 1st half?

  2. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very
    hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this. In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Safari.

    Excellent Blog!

    was looking on Digg for something else, Nonetheless I am here now
    and would just like to say thank you for a marvelous post
    and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to go
    through it all at the moment but I have book-marked it and also included your RSS
    feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read
    more, Please do keep up the superb work.
