An unsatisfactory weight

I went rock climbing today which was awesome. I used to rock climb a lot when I was younger, and I love it. My arms feel great now.

But on that wall, I realized how much better I’d be if I were 10 lbs lighter. My muscles would pack so much more punch when trying to muscle my way to a good handhold.

I told my friend I needed to lose weight, and she said “Wait, don’t you run?”

I am the perfect example that the quantity of what you eat is a more important factor in determining your weight than your activity level. I lost a few pounds while training for the marathon, but nothing significant. I also eat really healthy!

What I’m saying is it is really easy to eat at a pace that equals out the extra exercise you do.

I probably have less fat and more muscle than when I started my fitness kick, but that isn’t visible on the scale.
