Week 14, 229 lbs.

This week shows better progress than last week - three pounds down and a single pound away from the 60 lb. mark!

My size is changing dramatically so I am trying not to pay too much attention to the numbers on the scale right now.   And it's not just my shape that's changing ...  my activity level is crazy!!

On Sunday alone I cleaned several rooms in the house, biked 10 miles, took some time to leash train the dog, weeded part of the garden and did 20 minutes of an exercise video.... all before noon.   I just couldn't sit still.... to the point where my husband wanted to check the Ideal Protein foods in the pantry for illegal substances.  Anyone who knew me well in the past knows that this behavior is completely out of character.  What I was able to accomplish in one day this weekend would take me at least a week when I was heavier.

The combination of improved health and the cooler temperatures have me invigorated.  I have always loved the fall months and this year, I am spending more time out in the weather, savoring as much of it as I can.  I don't want to miss a moment of this beautiful, magical season.

I feel so good:  Happy, healthy and alive.   It feels good to be living life - instead of watching it pass me by.
