170 baby

I hit it. the low-awaited never thought I would get her again in a million years. I really thought (130 some pounds ago) that best I would end up at is around 200. It is really cool but there are some pros and cons---Pro...Stamina (I will let you figure out in what ways). Con-I have as of yesterday developed a flappy fold of skin on the bottom of my butt cheeks. They hit the back of my legs in a really annoying way when I walk. pro-i can see body parts that I have not seen in several years. Con-those body parts are pretty wrinkly with melted candle-like skin.

We went downtown today to the Saturday market. It isn't as much fun when what you have in your own garden is pretty much the same thing they have at the market. We picked up a funky little grapefruit sized melon and a bag of Gravenstein apples. After returning our purchases to the car we walked into the shopping district via Starbucks. We looked around the shops, had lunch, walked back up to the historical museum and then home...probably walked 2 miles over all.

While we were downtown there was a race going on called the Oyster race. It sounds really cool...I might log that one in my mind a something to try and do next year. I asked my husband to see if I could badger him into doing it with me. He actually said YES!! I will keep you posted if we manage to put this one together.

Great going. I'm closing in fast. I too thought 200, then 190, then 180 would be my end point. Now as I get closer to 170, my mind is thinking that there really isn't an end. So happy for you.
