    I just hiked over 2 miles with an 80lb backpack on my back, then I jogged over 2 milesSmile i do this 5 or 7 times a week. I`m all alone when im working out, i dont know anybody thats willing to put in this effort to be healthy and look sexy lolSmile i dont go to a gym, im doing this everyday even if it rainsSmile i have lost over 30lbs in all, im at 249 and i lift lots of weights, i wanna... i mean I amSmile going to get down to 200lbsSmile i know ill be ripped and very happy with myself... i just hate that i dont have a good support systemSad plus sometimes negatives thoughts flow into my mind, like im not gona make it or im fat or just some crap like that... running is a huge help for me! it just puts up a middle finger to those thoughts and a big smile on my face.... hook me up ppl with some good comments and stories... i need youSad 

      Good for you!

      My son did it- 243lbs down to 175lbs- so you can too.

      Be patient and be smart, eat sensibly.

      PBs since age 60:  5k- 24:36, 10k - 47:17. Half Marathon- 1:42:41.

                                          10 miles (unofficial) 1:16:44.

       


      sincerely silly

        Awesome so far!  It's great that you're doing it for yourself, the most important person to be doing it for. :-)

         

        Just keep in mind how great the progress has felt so far, and also promise to love yourself just for the effort.  The weight loss might get slower or you might plateau...just keep it up!  You'll be building muscle too so don't focus too much on weight and gauge your progress by how you feel.

          I'd take it easy on the use of the smileys, then you may get a lot more love on this site.  

           

          Good luck with that weight goal, and keep checking in, could be a good motivator.

                  Excellent Job!  I wish my husband had the dedication and determination you have!  I am an exercise freak you could say...I love working out/being active (thus my picture and nickname).  My husband had a heart attack back in 2009 and everybody assumes that I have whipped his butt into shape.  However, he isn't motivated and doesn't have the desire like you and therefore, I can't make him workout.  You are doing amazing things for your body right now and it is THANKING YOU!!! 

                   

                  Keep it up! 

                  :) SMILES:)

                              burned about 700 cals by walking over 4 miles... but it doesnt take in account that i had 60lbs strapped to my back... i wonder if its more?

                                You're being far too precise...it is 1 beer per mile.  Regardless of pace, elevation, pack weight, whatever.
