THR +22 Months (670 days)

May 4, 2016 - THR + 22 Months (670 days)

I'm hanging in Halifax for a bit and everything is tickety-boo. Twenty-two months after my hip replacement, life is great!

My weight is down to a hair under 240 lbs. I've plateaued because I'm not hitting the gym 2-3 hours a day like I was in Liverpool. This has more to do with location and workload rather than laziness. I do miss it...

I still manged to ride/row more than 250 km in April. May will be much less, of course. But I'm trying to limit my caloric intake to 1500 calories a day. And walk daily. So far, so good.

Here's a chart of my weight loss battle over the past few years. The length of time isn't really consistent, but the weight is.

On Jan 2, 2015 I was tipping the scales at 277.2 lbs. Today: 239.7, a loss of 37.5 pounds.

Here's the graph:

Going the Right Way
And here's a before after pic showing me just before going to Ireland last year and a couple of weeks ago:
Less is More
Obviously, I'm pretty pleased. I still would like to lose at least 20 more pounds, if not 40. I don't have a fixed goal in mind in terms of time. Definitely before hip replacement #2. But as there is STILL no pain, that's probably a ways off. As long as the weight keeps going down, I'm happy.

My health is excellent. I'm working a TON. And I'm pretty content with everything.

The next report will be coming from Guatemala. Bwa ha ha!

And so it goes...
