Thought i'd post an update as its been a while -- over the last month or so I've continued to go see the trainer regularly (and get my ass kicked), do a lot more walking (taking the long way home) as well as go on vacation (and do a lot more walking then!).
All that, as of this morning, has got me out of the 300's and at 299! I'm not sure when the last time I've been in the 200's have been, but it probably would have been 10+ years ago!
This has always been a milestone I haven't been able to reach -- I know i'll fluctuate up into the 300's for a bit in the coming weeks, but I'm close to forever being out of the 300 club!
