The lovely Mrs. Clyde issued a challenge to your's truly last night.
But let's get back to me. She does love me and loves me less now, thanks to my recent weight loss. She said "okay big boy, if you can get to 280 pounds by Father's Day, then it is yours...you can get the iTouch". She didn't have to add that if I fail, that request will go on that long-term, neglected wish list, probably for a long while and DEFINITELY behind her road bike!
As for the goal, this might seem easy for some people. But my exercise has been spotty lately. My weight loss has been through better food choices, not a lot of sweat involved. To increase my loss per week and make sure that I don't plateau, I'll really need to step it up. This will be a serious stretch for me, because it will definitely get me out of my comfort zone and get me moving.
So, to get the iTouch, I will need to drop approx 20 pounds by Father's Day. That is about 6 1/2 weeks away, or about 3 pounds per week. Any advice or kick-in-the-tail accountability you want to throw my way would be much appreciated.
(Twon: so, here is my goal for your challenge! Thanks for firing us all up.)
Time to get busy.
P.S. I did a platform-stepping thing tonight for 30 minutes. I haven't done that for awhile.
