Rock bottom

Standard

Rock bottom…can it get any lower? Why write this post now? I have put it off for the past month can’t I put it off longer? NO it is time to face reality! So drawing on the strength of a friend from middle school and fellow blogger, here. is goes…I weigh 205 lbs. Now you maybe thinking not such a big deal. But to me it has become the anchor around my neck, keeping me at the bottom of this rocky pit. A little over a year ago I weighed 228 lbs. I started jogging/walking everyday and diligently tracking everything that went into mouth and was ecstatic about the progress I made getting down to 182 lbs. Those around me are telling me not to be hard on myself given everything that has happened in my life the last 3 months but the reality is those are excuses and it is time I rise above. So the goal for the rest of April is at least a pound a week, at least 3 days of 30 minutes on the elliptical, and writing what I eat down. The anchor has been untied it is time to start making my way out of the pit. It maybe slow at first but I am hopeful the momentum will pick up.
