GEOGRAPHY (Where I'd be on the map having started at my house in Salt Lake City, Utah, heading for Tokyo):
Pacific Ocean (176 miles off the West coast. I am heading for the Hawaiian Islands)

I am a half pound from my official “40 pounds lost” day! It has been a little bit of a culture shock. I can get in and out of my car easier. I am now wearing 3X shirts instead of 4X. I’m ready to buy a new belt…I’m on the last hole! When I hear people talking about getting in shape, I smile inside knowing that I am riding my bike 20 miles every day. I remember when I needed to lose 155lbs!! Now it’s only 115lbs! I know you’re laughing…Only 115lbs I say. But it is great to know that things are changing.

I am actually getting to the exciting part of my losing weight and am 26.5lbs away from exiting out of the 300-Club!

I did miss my goal of 100 miles this week. I caught a cold on Wednesday and was down for a few days. I chose not to bike on Thursday and Friday, and rest. I think it was a good choice I will be back on my bike this coming week, and will shoot for the 100 miles. It’s going to be a busy and hot week, but let’s go for it!

This week I have just started to really feel that all the hard work, and focused effort is paying off. I’ve been doing this about 4 months.

I put out an invite last week, and I will ask again. I am looking for 10 people that would like to make a change in their weight, and have some fun doing it? Do YOU, or do you know someone that has been talking about losing weight but is lacking a little accountability and motivation? I have a fun idea that I think will work. But these 10 people need to have one ingredient, “desire.”

Let me know if you know or hear of someone.

This week I didn’t eat any bread. About mid-week I was dying to eat some, but didn’t. I ate more fruits and veggies. Actually, I did have a hot dog bun this evening at a picnic.

I’ve got a great cereal that I found at Sunflower Farmer’s Market that is high in Protein, low in Sugar, and has some great Carb and Fiber. It’s called Best Start. And if you shop there, you can sometimes find it on sale for 2 boxes for $5. Eat a bowl of that, with soy milk, some fruit, and 5 oz of Chicken breast, and you’re off to a good start!

Nothing to report here this week.
