Progress after 8 weeks

After only seven weeks, I stepped on the scale and saw 210 pounds. As usual, the first ten pounds came off quickly and easily. The next five were a bit slower but didn't require much effort. And just as usual, I've stalled out and have not lost anything since.

I'd like to lose 15 more pounds and do it by the end of October. This is going to be difficult if I can't increase my activity level. So far I have cut most of the easy calories by cutting out sugary drinks and snacks in between meals. I'm happy with the light exercise I've been doing. I should be able to increase this over the next few months. At the rate I'm going, it will still be the end of the year before I'm at the level I was years ago.

Staying ambulatory through the end of the year may be a problem. My right foot has another bone growth starting. Unlike all of the earlier ones, this one is forming on the bottom of the foot. I have no idea what it is going to take to deal with it. Right now it is a race to get in the best shape I can before I have to take a break and deal with the foot.
