Losing Weight with MyFitnessPal

Slowly, but surely, the pounds came. Like ants, one by one, then two by two. As a climber, extra weight is detrimental for sure. My ideal weight revolves around 185-190 pounds. At some point I reached 195 and soon, I saw 200 pound light up on the scale. While I could have blamed the batteries, I didn’t. Instead, I avoided the scale, told myself that “my weight fluctuates,” which it does and next thing I knew, I was at 220 pounds. That was November, and something had to be done.

When it comes to rock climbing, I am a product of the 80’s. It was a good era with lots happening in the sport and I was young and influential. For better or worse, I remember florescent tights. I remember when Jason Campbell, a top climber from that era, introduced me to my first sport route on Donner Summit in Lake Tahoe California.
