September 2007 calendar It’s hard to believe that this is the first day of autumn, already — and it’s even harder to believe that I actually forgot to weigh myself on Friday!

After all, this is supposed to be a 4-Week Walk for Weight Loss that we’re doing here, right?

Somewhere in the past three weeks, however, a lifelong obsession with the number on the scales has given way to just a pure enjoyment of improved fitness.

I don’t puff for breath when I walk up that steep hill, and the end-of-season yard work isn’t leaving me exhausted and in agony the next day. Gotta tell you, it feels pretty darned good!

Day 23:
5 minute warm-up
1 minute walk at level 7 – 8
2 minute walk at level 5
(repeat fast/slow cycle x 3)
5 minute cool-down

And my jeans are fitting more comfortably at the waist, too — the tape measure says I’ve lost almost 2 inches around the middle.

And another 2 pounds of lard came off this week (I did weigh myself this morning, as soon as I remembered that I’d forgotten to do that) for a total of 6 pounds weight loss in 3 weeks.
Not bad… Not bad at all…
