When I consider how I had to limit my workouts because of knee joint pain, that's not half bad progress. Instead of hitting the gym Tuesday and Wednesday, I took advantage of the beautiful weather to get some yard work done. There is a great sense of accomplishment in staring at the scale and setting the lower counterbalance at 200 pounds, and moving the upper one leftward from 50 pounds. So now I move on to my next goal, getting the scale under 200 lbs. I went from the 300 level to 250 in about 110 days. Getting to 200 might be tougher, but that's where I'm headed. I started out with a goal to get down to 220, but I'm aiming lower.
