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…
