Well I can't believe its been a year since I started all of this. As of Monday I was at 181, yes I gained a couple pounds but I'm Ok with that because I was able to quit smoking cold turkey and only gained 6 pounds from it. I think the six pound gain was worth the price of dumping this nasty habit. I had my last smoke August 11th so I'm a little over 2 months smoke free.
In the mean time, from about June-July I stopped working out consistently and it shows. I can look at my work out charts and see exactly when I stopped making progress. Face it guys, if you want to loose and maintain, exercise is something you have to do for the rest of your life to keep you there.
Today i've decided to stop dicking around and get back on course. I should say I've never completely stopped doing my DDR, I did at least once a week but thats not enough to lose anything. Although I haven't gained a lot either so that is promising in making think I won't have to kill myself to maintain later.
Anyway, last January 1st I wrote something about wondering where I would be come January 2008 so I am making a goal to try and finally get to 165 by January 1st. I probably should be at goal by now but I'm not going to let it stop me. If it take me 2 years to get there so be it. I've looked at some recent pictures, and while they look better then my 226 pounds starting weight, I still see a fat person when I look at them. And you know what? I'm tired of being fat...so Exercises full force again, here I come..
