Another successful Wednesday evening walk

Yesterday evening I was able to get to the gym again and complete another 2 miles (3.2 km) on the treadmill, followed by an hour in the swimming pool.
2 miles in 49 and a half minutes with a very slight incline
My heart rate got up to 145 bpm which is fine for me, getting my aerobic exercise. I was sweating and puffing and breathing heavily enough at the end that I could tell I'd just had a good workout. I was originally going to go for a whole hour, but was happy to see the machine tick over to the 2 mile mark, so I stopped a tad earlier than originally anticipated. 

I don't know why it is, but it always seem to take a couple of days for my good or bad behavior (lots of exercise or overindulgence) to be reflected on the scales. This morning I weighed in at 353.6 lbs, which is five pounds less than I was two weeks ago. With all the minor fluctuations up and down that come from obsessive daily weighing, it's difficult to accurately compare any one day to any other but that seems about right.
