The Weight is Over


Well actually the wait is over and the weight is under. The wait is over because I’ve finally published a blog … sorry for the hiatus. The weight is under because my focus on weight loss has been successful.

I never planned on using my blog to help inspire me to change, but I suppose it makes sense to start with the man in the mirror. My blog is also not intended to keep giving you updates on my weight. Since I have started the year with a couple weight related blogs I figured I should give you an update and then let the “weight watch” take a break.

I talked about how I lost 2 fingers and gained 15 pounds, but went on to remove that additional weight once I brushed up against the 190 lb marker. I then told how success along with complacency kicked in and I eventually gained much of that weight back over the past two years. I was determined to keep an eye on my waistline and get into better shape in 2014.

I’m happy to report that over the past 6 months I have dropped 12 pounds. 2 pounds a month is a nice slow weight drop and I’m very pleased with the results. Portion control, eating healthier, more exercise, and constant monitoring have been some of the actions I’ve been controlling better. I still have a lot of work to do in order to get in better shape, but things have progressed quite nicely.

So how does all this relate back to you? It’s essential to make some goals and figure out the actions that are going to help you attain those goals. Be honest with yourself along the way, ignoring setbacks is not a successful way to progress. Don’t be afraid to recalibrate. Be realistic and even consider setting multiple small goals as you continue towards your larger audacious goals. You may just surprise yourself with what you can accomplish.
