I'm down 13 kilograms since mid-July. I cut my calorie intake by 2/3rds, (aprox) and exercise hard at least every other day... or at times every day. Fast walks every day on both city streets and mountain trails. I exceeded my target goal set for tomorrow and I'm pleased. I intend to continue the exercise, but slowly increase my calorie intake back up to 1500 per day. I want to take of a couple more kilo, but am no longer in a rush to do so.
