WOW! That’s all I can think and say… the last 4 months have been wonderful. My life has changed for the better in so many ways. The amount of energy that I have, the way my body feels, and more importantly the place my mind is in! I have come to learn so much more about myself, my will power and more importantly my addiction throughout this whole process. Only 100 pounds go to!
Every day is a new day is the approach I would take in the past, but the gaping problem with this philosophy is that I would use that as an excuse to go off plan. Now I think of this as a race, a race against myself and time. What I have done in the past has a direct impact on what my future holds and while every day is a new day, every day that I stay on plan and hit the gym brings with it benefits for the future.
As the weight continues to come off so do the countless restrictions that have been held over my head for more years than I care to remember. I know that this might not seem all that significant to most but for the first time since high school I no longer need to shop at what I called a “fat man store” Last night I purchased a new pair of jeans and some t-shirts from Old Navy! I am not sure why society does this, but for men who are as big as I was, there is a very limited market for clothing. In fact, even where I live there are only two places I could shop in the past. One of which only carried horrible quality clothing, and the other which was VERY expensive! SO with that said this has be my favorite moment of my whole experience. I have gone from a 56 inch waist to a 42 inch waist…. Not bad I suppose!
Here I am!
