When you're dieting, why can't every week be as easy as the first week? During those first few days you're totally motivated, you see lots of weight loss (mostly water), and most importantly... it seems EASY. I suppose if it were effortless everybody would be fit, right?
This morning I had another significant drop in weight. I'm refraining from getting too excited because I know these trends will end soon. This time next week, I'll be excited about a 1/4 pound loss. Its the nature of the beast. Those of you that DO NOT battle with your weight, thank your lucky stars. What I put my body through (the good and the bad) is not fun.
Last night, David "Git-R-Dun" Minkin told me that he doesn't own a scale and has not weighted himself in a couple years. Talk about inspiring! There again, if you know David, you would agree that he is VERY active and leads a healthy lifestyle. That is exactly where I want to be. With every weight loss attempt, I get a little closer to a healthier balance. My day to shine is just around the corner.
Sorry, for the meaningless chatter. I'll quit typing what is going through my head.... for now.

I'm really tired. Today made eleven straight running days (70.6 miles). I had hoped to run 8 miles today, but as you can see above I only made six miles before hitting the bike. Looking forward to an off day tomorrow. I have to get the treadmill calabrated. There is no way I ran an 11:20 pace. Well, I hope I wasn't running that slow. Whew, my legs are KILLING ME!
