More importantly I have been able to string 4 good weeks back to back which has seemed to elude me for so long. Up, down, up, down never really getting anywhere.
I put in the work this week and put in the restraint at the table to get my goal so I was confident it was going to happen for me. My prior success has given me a lot of confidence that I can do this as well as just about anything I set my mind to if I am willing to put in the work. At races I am rarely surprised by my results because I know what work did or did not get done in training.
The difficulty of getting back to this weight reminds me of something I learned along the way. Losing weight is the easy part...keeping it off for the next 40 years is the more difficult of the two. So, 3 down 37 to go.
(Keeping the weight off article I found last year when preparing for the Boise Cascade health fair.)
