Update end of Feb 2009

I finally got to set of scales:

80.4 kg = 177 lbs = 12 stone 9 lbs and 25% body fat.

The 25 is important – 25% and over body fat is one clinical definition of obese. So if I keep going I will soon be un-obese for the first time in years.

I have eased off the effort the last couple of weeks but I hope to get back on this week.

As a matter of interest I walked with a 15 kg rucsac the other day. It felt hard, I felt like I was lumbering, I felt slow and plodding. Somewhat shocking then that is similar to the weight I have lost since Christmas! No wonder I was feeling a bit slow then!

I still have another 10 kilos I’d like to lose – I can’t wait to feel how easy walking and running will be then!
