Mid New Years Resolution Update

Alas and alack, I have failed thus far to lose the 30 lbs I set out to lose at the outset of 2008. Instead, I have gained 30. I feel awful and I am tired all the time. It is time to regain control of my body.

Tomorrow evening I will begin going to the fitness room at my plant. I am going to begin by using the treadmill 3 - 4 times a week. I am not going on a diet. I am going to cut back on portions and drink more water.

I weighed in this morning at 252 lbs, the most I have ever weighed in my life. I sense that this weight loss effort will be my most difficult ever. At least for the first month. I owe it to myself, my wife, and my children to get this weight off.

Prayers and encouragement are not only welcome, they are desperately needed.

I know you can do it Todd. It is so much easier for men to lose. All my husband has to do is drink more water and cut out the beer.

Seriously though, I was able to drop 20 lbs in less than 6 months by focusing mostly on exercise. I have more to go, but I just keep remembering how great I really feel when I exercise. If nothing else, I feel better, sleep better, and have more energy and am overally happier than my normal happy self. Good luck!!!

Well I think the two of you look Fabulous!

If you MUST exercise I have often heard it suggested to find something that you love like bicycling or basketball w/the kids. That advice doesn't work for me however as I LOVE potato chips and reading or watching movies. ha,ha. I too struggle with moving more and eating less. But Right on Brother ... You can do it!
