As I said last week, the gain was nothing to be worried about. I’m back on the weight loss train. I’ve been pretty good about walking every night. Yesterday I was able to walk once in the morning and then again in the late afternoon. I enjoyed a couple nights out last week, so it’s nice to see that I’m still losing. I should note I weighed in a little later than usual, but I don’t think that had too much effect.
I’m in the mid-270s before July 4th. It’s not inconceivable that I could hit my goal of being in the 250s before I leave California for Eugene at the end of summer. That’s pretty exciting.
It’s kind of weird how my mood has shifted throughout this whole process. Before I started, I used to always say that I needed to lose weight, but I just never got around to it because I didn’t have faith in myself to follow through. At the beginning, I was very hesitant about everything, and even when I was having some nice big losses I was still weighting for the shoe to drop. Until just recently I was still waiting for something to happen and me to revert back to my big, fat self. But not anymore. I’m halfway to my first goal, and I can see the end. And the end of this is with me as a healthier, more confident, more happy with his appearance type of guy. I’ve already gotten far on that way, and I’ve reached the point of no return. I can see the end of the tunnel and there’s no way I’m turning around and getting back on the path of self-destruction I was on. Fat Dave is on the way out and Healthy Dave is trying to break in. And I must say that’s a pretty good spot to be in.
