Hello Readers! I have been delinquent in posting, but I post with good news. My target date to have lost the initial 25 pounds was on March 15th. I was on a ski vacation with Dana at that point in time so that is why I am slow to post. I am very pleased to mention that I did hit my inital goal of 25 pounds by March 15th.
I have mentioned before though that this is a never ending journey for me. While in Colorado skiing my friend Andy Moore laid out a further challenge. He asked me how much more I truly wanted to lose. I am not afraid to share my weight with the world. I am down to 217 pounds now, compared to mind boggling 350 pounds I was once at this is a miracle. My next level that I really want to reach is the under 200 barrier with an ultimate goal of 185 pounds that would put me at a very healthy number. My friend Andy who is in very good shape wants to join in this quest so we have a bottle of a fine liquor on the line. This will keep the inspiration up.
I think an important point to make since I said I was on vacation is that working out or physical activity does not have to stop. Each of us owns a pair of running shoes, pack your shoes in with your luggage and do something while on vacation. For me the trip was skiing, and I think Dana will attest to this skiing is a very physical activity. Most people probably think going down a mountain is very easy, but you get an incredible leg workout in as well as a very good cardio workout in.
I look forward to keeping everyone up to date on my next goal. To everyone find your inspiration and use it to help you achieve all that you can. That was my motivational phrase of the day.
