  1. Down 60 pounds today! I was very happy to see the scale drop below the 100kg mark this morning - it's such a wonderful visual reminder that things are working (slowly but surely). Once I lose 10 more pounds I will be halfway to goal, which is almost unbelievable to me!

      Gym opening at 10am!? That is absurd and unheard of, especially in the states. Walking is great. Good conditioning for your heart too. I'll have to get used to "just walking". I do love my weights, but even now I'm out due to injury, so that's out. I find it amazing that it's gonna be three months already for you. It really does seem like you just had it. 😊 I'm just so happy to hear it seems to be going well for you. Keep at it hon!

      Gyms opening at 10 a.m. is pretty much unheard of everywhere. Welcome to Japan! Though I think some gyms are starting to have earlier hours, like 9 a.m. :rolleyes: Luckily, there's a local community center right down the street from me, and they have a gym which only costs about $3 per use, which is a great deal. The hours still aren't great, but at least I don't have to pay for an expensive membership.

      Earlier...9am. LOL That's quite funny! :D

      That's a pretty good pay as you go membership. I froze my gym account for six months, it's cheap, but $20 going out the door for not using it during my injury adds up. There's a school track down the street, I'll get to walking on. Probably start tonight and take my kids with me.
