I weighed in at 152 pounds yesterday morning, six weeks after I became my own weight loss and fitness coach using the guidance of the Become Your Own Personal Weight Loss Coach program. So, I have lost five pounds in six weeks. If I maintain this rate of progress, I will reach my maximum weight loss goal after only six months. Exercise has been a key part of my personal program, and I can feel a dramatic difference in my fitness level. This morning I ran (slowly) over a half mile in the midst of my pre-sunup walk. It feels good to stretch my normal limits. I have to admit I have become a lazy slug over the past couple of decades, but I am steadily getting back into healthy shape.
