Gipe moves into range of goal

The progress continues. The combination of the new eating plan and increased workouts, both with and without my personal trainer Trevor Tieche, has been pretty successful. 

I am averaging 2 pounds per week of weight loss and the measurements have finally changed. It has given me a little more motivation, except for the past few days with my wife in the hospital with pneumonia and a few other complications. It is hard to sit there and watch someone feel so poorly and watch TV and read without eating something. 
 

I have tried to take food with me, but it is easy to supplement that food with junk. Hopefully, she will get out in the next few days and I can get back into the routine. 
 

I have been getting at least one long (20 miles-plus) bike ride in each week, in addition to three weight workouts and one additional cardio workout at the gym.

I have broken into the 250s and am hoping to be in the 220s by the end of the year. I feel great and the clothes are getting looser all the time. The bodybugg has been very helpful and an extra motivator.

I just watched you Video and caught myself lasughing out loud when I seen you pick up the Snickers. I myself am a fan of 3 Muskateers. You are a better person than me, because I can't even have that stuff in my house or I will eat it. You are looking great Ken. I'm happy for you
