Smile!! It Confuses People

Today, I am having a skinny day.  As in I feel skinner than I have in over 13 years.  I am wearing just an XL shirt and 38 pants.  Big difference than a 3XL and 44 pants.  I also had some great news from my doctor yesterday.  Nine months ago, my doctor said I might need to start taking some meds for my cholesterol and triglycerides.  They were way out of control.  He wanted me to come back in three months and check them again.  In between that time period, I had started working out and running.  They were still bad but getting better.  The doc wanted me to come back in 6 months.  Last week was my 6 month check-up, and the results came back yesterday. Every thing is normal and looks good.  No more issues with my cholesterol or triglycerides!  No need for meds!  Life is good!

I have 8 miles planned in the morning.  I am looking forward to the run.  I have been kicking my butt this week and getting all my workouts and runs in.  It feels great to be back at it and working hard! 

I also talked to the recruiter for the National Guard yesterday.  He told me to lose about 40 more pounds, and then we will talk again.  That was expected.  I am going to work my butt off, and I am hoping by January I will be able to start the process.  That will put me at 200 lbs!  A year ago, if you would've told me I would be thinking about the National Guard and looking at 200 lbs, I would've laughed at you.
