My long-term goal of getting down to a good weight is working well. This morning, I weighed in at 151 lbs/68.5 kgs. Six weeks ago, I weighed 158 lbs/71.6 kgs, and on December 1, 2010, I weighed 168 lbs/76.2 kgs. (To put those numbers in context, I’m 5′ 8.5″, or 174 cm tall.)
I haven’t done anything really radical to make this happen. I eat very well and very sensibly. About three weeks ago, I cut out potatoes and rice from my diet, but I still eat bread (sprouted grains and spelt, usually at breakfast, toasted with almond butter) and lots of bananas. Running frequently has helped. I’ve started doing 100K or slightly under that a week most of the time.
Where am I going with this? I’m not sure, to be honest. 150 lbs/68 kgs would be nice, but that’s probably only because it’s a nice round number. Forty years ago, when I was 23 years old, I weighed 145 lbs/65.8 kgs, but I’m not sure that I want or need to get that low.
