The Story of Debbie Shank

This is a terribly unbelievable story. Simply unbelievable. Sam Walton must be spinning in his grave. There are really no meaningful comments I can post here. Just watch the video.

I'm still keeping with the same routine I've been doing. I did the spinning class last Saturday (I'm really starting to kick butt in that class) and I've been keeping up with racquetball and lifting weights and counting calories. I try to eat 1600-1700 calories per day.

My knee has been feeling much, much better after the last few days of racquetball. I'm not sure if it was the cortisone shot that helped, or me just getting into a routine, but undoubtedly my knee is better!

This week I lost 4 pounds. That puts me at 21 pounds lost total! I'm almost half-way to my goal weight. I know that the second half will be tougher but I still think 200lbs is an achievable goal.

Unfortunately this week was not a very good one for me. I was quite busy and missed a couple of workouts. Also, it's that time of year the Girl Scouts are out peddling their wares, so that didn't help me any. :-)

Anyway, I was down a pound, so that's some sort of progress. It would be nice to lose three this week so I can be down to 20lbs lost, but we'll see how close I can get.
