doing great!!

Saturday, October 10, 2009

Doing really well and today I weighed in at 328, down from 385, which turns back my “fat clock” about 10 years, I have managed to drop a little over 7 BMI points but am still “morbidly obese” - WHATEVER!. I am in the best shape I have ever been in the last 15 years and i love myself for who I am NOW, not some imaginary studly looking dude that I MIGHT be in the future. i accept myself where I am at and that is the key. i am getting there slowly but surely and I’m having a great time along the way. I have inspired alot of people along the way where I live and that just keeps me moving. I also ran for 20 minutes on the treadmill at 4.2 mph and almost 5 min of that at 5.5 mph. Not bad for an OBESE guy -just more of me to love! Hmm whats going to happen when I really get in shape? Hey guys…… quit whining and enjoy the journey. you can either look at it like - wow dude, I need to lose 100 more lbs before Im not obese anymore - that bites! or i can say the bigger the challenge, the bigger the braggin’ rights! It’s all in how you look at it. Forget about instant results, they dont exist. If you are pill poppin and starving yourself, all your doing is renting your numbers, you’ll never own the victory in the long run. Be in it for the long haul!

    Thank you for teaching me how to make this journey.
I have more than the weight loss mountain to climb, and the things I'm learning from you will help me to meet my other challenges as well.

    I am reading back over your past blogs, to learn more about your journey. I love a couple of your phrases in this blog, "the bigger the challenge, the bigger the bragging rights." LOVE that one!! :) Puts a new spin on staying positive when looking at the entire goal. Also love how you say those who are doing it the unhealthy way are only "renting their numbers." So true as well.

Love the catchy phrases that stick with me! :)
