In similar news, I am down to 180 pounds. In August I was tipping the scale at 199 and was experiencing plantar fasciitis mostly due to the weight. I have very little pain from that ailment anymore. Just a lingering ache on occasion. (However, I did twist the ankle in that same foot in January and that hurts still if my foot is in the wrong position.) But basically, I am 2/3 of the way to my goal of 170 pounds by my birthday. Slightly behind schedule, but considering that I totally forgot about that resolution, I don't think I am doing too badly. Now, if I actually were to make use of my 24 Hour Fitness membership I could easily drop to that weight by July.
