Going Down

I've had a good week so far. I'm down to 189 pounds! I honestly don't recall the last time I was below 190. I'm sure it has been at least 5 years or more. It feels great! Totally awesome! I'm fitting into more of my old "skinny" clothes. It's like shopping without the expense! I'm getting more second looks from men and women at work. Coworkers are asking about my weight loss. I'm loving it! Instead of sweating about losing 15 or 20 pounds I've set weekly goals of 1, 2, or 3 pounds based on my work schedule, factoring in when I would need to eat and workout. So far it has been successful and I don't see that changing. My goal is obtainable and the new attention is inspiring. By the end of July, my goal is to be at 170, my "old fighting weight". By the end of August, I hope to have tighten up all the jiggly parts. I'm excited about the progress so far. Its hard to believe when I started this journey about 4 years ago, I had allowed myself to balloon to 252 pounds. Never again. I've since learned new eating habits and have been exercising long enough now that it is a habit. I'm all a tingle.

one year ago (6/7/11), I joined a local gym, something I have never done in my life. I have dropped 30 pounds, have begun to tighten up the jiggly parts, I feel stronger and more flexible. I have also dropped my total cholesterol 40 points. AND I really like going to the gym!

never thought I would be saying that EVER!

I have far to go, but I am taking it one day at a time. it took many many years to put on the weight, and it's going to take a few more years to drop more pounds. but I am in it for the long run.

cheers to you, dave, for doing something beneficial for yourself!
