I spent a good two hours going over everything to try to find ways to lower my base weight. After some effort, I was able to cut 8.4 ounces or slightly over half-a-pound. Doesn’t seem like much, but then when you are going to walk 5.5 million steps, half-a-pound is pretty significant. I’m still 3.2 ounces over my 15 pound limit.
At this point I would have to cut something significant. Can I skip taking my glasses because I’m wearing contacts? That is 3.4 ounces. Maybe I’ll just wear my glasses. The solution is water and water is heavy. I walk slower in my glasses. At some point I just have to stop worrying about it. I’m really close and I can decide better once I see what I’m using and what I’m not using.
I can say that I’ve gone through absolutely everything.
With that I’m focusing on getting my food packed and spending time with my family. They are going to miss me, and I’m going to miss them. That is what I’m going to do until I leave.
