Twenty-five Pounds Down!
Twenty five pounds down! It's been 54 weeks since I started and 16 weeks since I hit my last 5-pound milestone. It's slow going, but slow is better than backwards. The holidays were rough, but spring is just around the corner. I'm thinking about taking up a new hobby: geocaching - ever heard of it? You need a GPS locator, then you go online and get the latitude and longitude for a local cache, enter the coordinates and then hike out to wherever it is. When you find it, it usually contains a log book where you can write your name: I was here. Sometimes there is a collection of worthless tinkets. You can take one as long as you add one. Its a popular hobby among geeks and nerds who like high tech gizmos like GPS locators, but it includes hiking, so I figure it might be good for me too.
