UGHHH!!! Got on the scale today. 320 pounds!
That means all of the weight I lost two years ago, has decided to 'mysteriously' reappear.
There is no mystery, however.
After my bike crash, I 'let go' of all my great lifestyle changes.
No more exercise (not motivated). No more 'healthy food choices' (again, "who cares" - I was just happy to be alive).
It certainly was not surprising, then, that all the weight came 'crashing back'.
Then I got sick in Colorado, just last week.
The doctor gave me a big scare once again. He told me that my blood pressure was at 'stroke level' - and that while he was going to give me some BP meds to control it, that I HAD to do something about it. So I am.
I know what I need to do - and I have done it - I just need to 'dig a little deeper' and get back do it. So I am on a road to loosing 80 pounds again - by January 30, 2017 - that's 1 to 2 pounds a week.
I have done it before - I know I can do it again.
I'm baaaack.! Onward!
- Lose 80 more pounds on the way to losing more than 100 pounds in order to live a much more healthy lifestyle again.
I hope to walk, swim, and hopefully return to cycling and a little weight training. But it was my passion for cycling that helped me shed 80 pounds, and I am going to try to return to what works.
I have learned that becoming healthy (and losing weight) is a holistic process of nutrition, hydration, exercise and sleep.
I live in Seoul, South Korea and work with a IT contractor for the US military. I'm not very comfortable with revealing to much personal information, so if you want to chat, you'll have to send me a spark-mail.
I believe that learning to love yourself, love others, develop meaningful relationships, and laughing alot are the most important things in life.
