I originally had a 40 by 40 plan in mind. That was to lose 40 pounds by the age of 40. I was about 180lbs 5 years ago, and my aim then was to make it to 140. Instead, I gained about 10 more in the next 3 years! So there is reason to celebrate, today I turn 45, I am down by 55! I am just 5lbs away from my target weight (which is still 10lbs above the lowest range of my “ideal” weight) but I am way out of shape. So I fit in smaller sized clothes but some if them don’t fit well. The more daunting task of working out to whip myself into shape lies ahead. Never ends I tell you, it never ends.
