Finding Myself Along The Way

It wasn't long ago that I was 100% focused on my long-term weight loss goal. As far as I was concerned, I was going to lose 100 pounds in the course of a year. Two years later, I'm just now approaching my 50 pound weight-loss mark. I'll be halfway there in twice the amount of time I thought it would take me to lose all the weight.

During these past two years, I've been humbled. This trip I'm taking is definitely supposed to be more about the journey than the end result. I need to ...
It wasn't long ago that I was 100% focused on my long-term weight loss goal. As far as I was concerned, I was going to lose 100 pounds in the course of a year. Two years later, I'm just now approaching my 50 pound weight-loss mark. I'll be halfway there in twice the amount of time I thought it would take me to lose all the weight.

During these past two years, I've been humbled. This trip I'm taking is definitely supposed to be more about the journey than the end result. I need to learn things about who I am and understand how I grew to be 100 pounds over-weight in the first place before I can truly benefit from losing that weight.

I will eventually see my goal and enjoy the end results of all of this hard work, but for now... I just enjoy the processes involved in getting there.

My Goals:
I''ve been on this path since April of 2004. On a nice sunny day on my college campus, I noticed I was feeling out of breath just walking across a flat sidewalk to class. I weighed in that night at about 255 pounds. For a 5''6" frame, that''s a bunch of extra weight. In March of 2006, I decided to finish what I had started. I weighed in on June 14 at 203.4 pounds, and I would like to see 190 by September and reach my long term goal of 150 by the end of 2007.

Personal Information:
I live in the Capital District of New York State.

Way to go- Keep up the good work.

I've been working on weight loss for the last year and a half and only lost 15 lbs. It's hard work... very hard indeed...
