this number went up three pounds didn't it!!!! congrats brother. You are continuing to make an even more major transformation.
I wish I could play racquetball with you. I'm good at it and like to play like 8 singles games back to back. It is so much fun. Too bad we don't live near each other.
Keep up the good work brother. You'll be under 170 in no time!
Well, although I lost the 30 pounds in 3 months (and about 40 pounds in 6 months), I also put back on more than 15 pounds in about 2 months this winter (153 or so to 170).
Yeah, definitely if you're ever near Bloomington or I'm ever in Portland we'll have to get up a game (or eight!).
I can't think of another activity that's both so much fun and, if it's a competitive game between good players, as much of a workout. Sometimes I wear my heart rate monitor when I play, and find that I average about 140 and sometimes top 160. Not as intense as running a 5k race, but right up there with a long, brisk jog.
I think my body is weird about holding onto fat during the winter more so than most people's. Since I started exercising regularly again in mid-January, I haven't been exercising that much less than I did last summer, am eating a very low-fat diet (and not too bad on the sugar), and here I am stuck at 15 pounds more than I weighed in November. Frustrating! Oh well, now that my ribs are healed up I can start lifting again and hopefully add some muscle to go along with the fat.
And spring is on the way!
