When I said that minus ten was inevitable, I honesly only half (or maybe three quarters) believed it. I got on the scale today, and my doubts were removed. So then, the question looms - what will I do once I'm at 170? I don't know, but I think I'll try to avoid counting my chickens before they're hatched.
That said, it's really exciting to be almost there - all it took was a boatload of workouts, a geographic change, and an office with absolutely no cakes/donuts/etc. Who woulda thunk it?

It's the sound of inevitability! We moved to Maryland February 2nd and today is the first day I haven't done something physical. That said, the place we're going to live is almost three times further from the office, so to have already come down to 176 is really great - if I bike to work even three times a week, 170 pounds will be here before Labor Day.
Very exciting times and while I would "normally" (or rather historically) eat a lot to compensate, but that's just not happening (maybe because I'm just too tired!). No matter how I look at it though, I really believe 170 is inevitable.

Since my last blog post in September, we've moved to Maryland, I've gotten a new job, and I'm in a position to ride my bike to work EVERY DAY (or almost every day)!! It's unbelievable. A whole bunch of things are coming together, conspiring to make minus ten a reality. In fact, if we move where we're planning, I'll be riding almost 40 miles a day (and running six days) - is minus ten inevitable? It just might be.
Having said all that, I haven't posted since September because I really stopped trying to eat right. I was still working our pretty well, but I just lost interest in Minus Ten. I think it's partly normal; it was a very long competition season. Part of it was fear - just afraid of failing. But I know that I tend to keep trying and I thought about this blog quite often. I won't weigh myself again for a while (scale is packed away), but I'm re-invigorated.
I still can hardly believe I can ride to work every day. What a dream come true.
