Kathy Week 35: Goodbye Summer

Kathy's Week 54 Stats:
Last Week's Weight: 127
Today's Weight: 129
Starting Weight: 151
Total Weight Loss: 22 pounds

I know, I know...I'm two pounds above that exciting weight I posted last week...sigh...

But I'm really not worried about it, because my body went through some major physical stress this week, and I think my body is just recovering with some extra fluids for a few days.

What stress, you ask??

Only the most exciting thing I've done all summer...I climbed Mount St. Helens on Tuesday!!

Even with all the training Mark and I did this summer, it was still a grueling, 11-hour climb. But it was SO worth it!! Want to see some more photos? Click here to see photos and the story of our climb on my other blog.

My joints are fine, but my thigh and calf muscles are still sore from Tuesday's climb. I think as I continue recovering, the extra water weight will melt away...we'll see about that when I post again next Saturday.

Meanwhile, enjoy the last week of summer...what are your plans? I'll be going back to work (high school English teacher) on Monday, so this is my last hurrah for summer 2010.

Kathy, I'm so inspired by your hike of Mt St Helens. Now it is definitely on my list of things I want to do. Way to go! You look really incredible.

We'd love to hear from you!
