So, fitness goals and accomplishments for 2019 (so far):

* Lost all accumulated weight from dating sedentary guy (above and beyond his 180 pounds ;) )
             - Down 20 pounds from December 2018
             - Another 30 pounds to go (hopefully before December 2019)
* Back to walking 35-50 miles a week
* Calories are very low right now, but I've figured out through trial and error how many net calories I need to maintain weight going forward. so once I'm at goal weight, I should be good so long as I'm careful
* No longer "obese" by the BMI scale - just overweight
* Waist-to-hip ratio still sucks (and in fact, is worse because I've lost a lot of the extra padding on my hips/bottom)

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

Rescued from the 3rd or 4th page. :whistle:

You haven't given an update since March.
You know I'm going to lose
And gambling's for fools
But that's the way I like it
Baby, I don't want to live forever.

Because I'm not doing much, for me it's a case of managed decline.  :P

I am in a comfortable groove with my workouts now.  I bench 225 twice a week and in one of those days also add in a static lift set of 405.  One day is devoted to dead lifts and RDLs.  The other days I do a range of strength and flexibility exercises.  Most days I finish off with a few sets of ropes.

Friday is my rest day :)

The BMI scale is pretty bad.  According to it I have always been obese - even when I was playing ball. It doesn’t take muscle mass into account.

A rare day today, this evening I cycled twice as far as the tour de france stage, usually this only happens 2 / 3 times a tour, that is on one of the time trials and the two rest days.  :D

Ran 25K for the first time since early winter. It took me 2 1/2 hrs, with water breaks and traffic lights. Felt good. If I could only make 30....

Now have beer and a cavernous stomach.

Are you looking to do a marathon, Sask?

I'm thinking that starting in December, I'm going to try to do a 5k a month, and finish the year with a half-marathon. That'll give me just over 50 miles run in competitions in my 50th year. :D

I think I have diabetes.
I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

Raz is right. -MadImmortalMan March of 2017

Yes. But 42 K is a long way to run. Eventually. Once.

Go for the half! It's a good distance.

 :(

Raz, is that a medical opinion, a concern or just a fear?
