Had to brag....I am now lighter by 8 pounds. I think it's the swimming that is really doing it.
Better than the weight loss, if you can believe that, is that I am feeling stronger. Yesterday, I swam 50 laps and didn't have to crawl out of the pool like I was some victim from a shipwreck dragging herself onto dry land again.
NOT having to gasp for breath might be the best it's gonna be for awhile. Frankly, whenever I get the one step forward-one step forward improvement in anything, I feel darn lucky. I'm usually have a strict two forward - one and one half back policy with these kinds of things.
