On Saturday morning, I weighed in at my new low: 180.2 lbs! This puts me just 5 lbs from my penultimate (there’s my favorite word, again!) goal, and only 15 lbs from my final goal! I’m excited to be so close.
Also, today is the one year anniversary of the start of our new lifestyle that has lead to my weight loss and improved health, and I never dreamed that I could get this far so soon. I hoped, but I didn’t really think it could be done.
Yet here I am.
When I set out to do this, I had lofty goals, but no real expectation of getting there. When I met my first goal, I was happy and surprised. When I hit my second, third, and fourth goals, it was intoxicating. I wanted to hit that next goal!
As it turned out, I missed the deadlines I had set for myself for my last two goals, but I’m okay with that. Losing over 105 lbs in the period of one year is a great accomplishment, and I’m proud of myself and of my wife on her loss. We’re both feeling great, and we’ve improved our quality of life.
You can do this, too. A year goes by quickly. I can’t believe I’ve come this far in so short time.
