So, my name is still the same but this post is 2 years from the last one. I'll be 40 in June & I still have dreams of dropping excess weight. Perhaps, allotting a weekly goal of 2-3 lbs/week from May 1, 2012 until May 1, 2013 for a solid 12 months (96+ lbs?) would be wiser than stating pie in the sky type of unrealistic goals. Let's see whether this will work, this time around.
For a solid year (the time that I returned to school), I stopped using SP & it didn't help b/c I put a lot of what I lost, back on. 248-ish lbs now (very unhealthy weight).
Although I'd like to still do those outdoorsy type of activities, I'll settle for not feeling crappy all the time & having the energy to do whatever, whenever!
The Philadelphia Marathon is around November, my brother et al are running in it (again) - will I join them this year? Might be a good goal.
Now if I can just get as motivated as our fearless team leaders, I'll be able to achieve greatness.
My name is Derek, I will turn 38 in June and I'm trying to reinvent myself by losing between 50 and 90 lbs by the time I turn 39.
Why now? Because I want to become more of an outdoors person, I want to learn how to kayak, I want to go rock climbing, I want to ski during the winter months, I want to be able to take off my shirt at the beach and not be embarrassed, I want to run a marathon (or walk), and I want to feel better about myself, overall.
Oh, I'm from the 6th borough of New York City, aka North New Jersey, Essex County.
