newlook

If you want to look thin, don't hang around me anymore

They say, if you want to look thin then hang around people fatter than you. If that is what you have been up to in the last few years, then begone my friend!

For the first time in the last few years my weight is now within the 'normal' range for my height. It is close to the upper limit I admit, but hey. It had once gone quite close to the next category when sense prevailed. The loss has been exponentially slow of course but that was partly intentional once the bulk was off :-).

It has been a great three year journey (to the day) - and I'm talking just health-wise. A morning feels weird and incomplete without my 5+ kms. The half marathons last year were a great ego boost. Resting heart rate is comfortably in the fifties. Eating habits/schedules are superb compared to earlier, binges included.

Tomorrow the better half treats me to a feast :-P
