It's a year today that John and I started recording our workouts. Looking at January 2007 I can see that I'm only five pounds lighter than I was then, despite keeping at the exercise pretty consistently.
I celebrated the anniversary with an early morning run along the Wandle today, and hated every step of it. (I'm going to step up roadwork in January and February before skiing in the first week of March.)
Looking on the bright side, I feel a lot stronger and fitter so I imagine that I have probably lost around half a stone in fat, and it is certainly better than being heavier than I was a year ago.
Also on the bright side, HELP YOUR HEART WITH EXERCISE - AND BOOZE says the Guardian.
