    No marathon in my future. Just pushing myself a bit. I may get it up to 150 minutes but no more than that, I'm pretty sure. The elliptical is so easy on my knees, joints. And as I drop weight its a lesser calorie burn during the exercise. I only exercise my 3 off days as I work 10-16 hour days. So no other time available to exercise. Get a few walking miles during work days. I'm in the groove of losing and want it to continue and don't want a plateau.

    Hi everyone!

    I’m a bit frustrated with myself. Was decently disciplined and hoped for more than a 2lb loss. Oh this was much easier in my early 20s. 🤣

    SW: 222 (10/10/21)
    CW: 220

    Oct. 10: 222
    Oct. 17: 220
    Oct. 24
    Oct. 31

    GW for Oct. 210
    GW for 2021: 195

    My NS goals for the month:
    🎃 limit alcoholic beverages to two/week
    🎃 peloton 6 days this week 45-60min
    🎃 100 oz of water daily

    Upped my Elliptical again this week to 140 minutes and today I did 151 minutes! Did the extra 1 minute because I wanted the 12 miles! Down 68.8 lbs! More than halfway of the 133 lbs to loose to get to my goal weight!
    UGW-122 lbs, was at that years ago (2009- kept it off for 5 years) after being at 255 lbs before. So I feel I can do it again. Just can't get lazy afterwards like before.

    Happy Monday! It got COLD here this weekend! Had an 80degree day on Saturday, but then storms came through and it dropped into the 40s overnight. I had to turn my heat on for the first time since late spring.

    SW (7/23): 300
    10/4: 283.6
    10/11: 282.4
    10/18: 279.4
    GW for September: 278-280

    Had a surprisingly large drop this week! Comfortably within my October goal (and it's only the 18th!). Staying largely on track, although I did miss a workout yesterday due to extreme fatigue from my covid booster. Feeling better today and planning to get back on schedule.
