Losing weight again and making strides

Yesterday was a fantastic day for getting back on track with the weight loss, and for squeezing in a large number of steps.
Losing weight again and making strides

Four months ago I was just a tad over 400 pounds (181 kg). In the next three months I lost close to 40 lbs (18 kg) then got stuck for about three weeks at the 362 lb mark, give or take a pound or two.

Yesterday, I tackled a large number of stairs at work (see, plus I went to the gym and walked on the treadmill for a while and went swimming for an hour. At the end of the day I had clocked up 10,200 steps! I haven't done that in a long time. Occasionally, I'll hit 8,000, but my usual average is about 6-7,000 steps. My feet and calves felt tired and I slept really well last night.

I know that if I'm going to achieve my goals for next year I'm going to have to do this many more times but I'm prepared for that. The stakes are too high to fail or to give up.
