I’m still trying to whittle away ounces on my pack weight. It has occurred to me that instead of worrying about ounces, I should be concentrating on losing some weight. (I have plenty to lose!). I’ve already been working out 3x/week, plus hiking on the weekend, so it is obvious I need to make some changes to my diet. But, my diet really isn’t that awful – I just have trouble with portion control and a bit of a sweet tooth. So, I’ve been living by the “3S” rule: no sweets, no snacks, no seconds (except occasionally on days that start with S). If I can drop 20 pounds by the start of my thru, my knees will be a lot happier!
Not totally official yet, but we’re looking at a start date of March 6th.
