The Weight Is Over: Feeling Groovy

Sep 19, 13 The Weight Is Over: Feeling Groovy

Man I feel good this week.

I’ve been eating pretty good for the past two weeks (only one terrible meal this week – damn you Taco Bell!) and I’ve walked some more on the treadmill.

When I weighed in this morning, I saw this:

It’s been a few months since I’ve been down to 250 and I’m feeling good. My clothes are definitely fitting a little better (I don’t feel like I’m going to split my pants when I bend over!) and I actually just FEEL good. Healthy.

Of course, I know I still have a long way to go but I continue to maintain a positive outlook on this. I know it’s not going to be a quick transition. Again, it took years for me to put this weight on, I can’t expect to change everything overnight.

This coming weekend will be a little bit of a challenge. I have a wedding to attend. Rich food and an open bar will be my enemies. I’ll have to bone up on “healthy” alcoholic beverages before I attend the festivities to at least feel less guilty (and hopefully less hungover) in the morning.

BONUS: I actually fit into my suit!  Well, I will before the wedding anyway.

    Great job Brian! Keep the positive attitude man. Just focus on being a little better today than you were yesterday.

    • Thanks Chris, that’s good advice and definitely the outlook I’ve been taking this time around.
