It’s been one month of healthy living. The difference this time is that I’m not being completely obsessed with each and every calorie, and I’m not restricting my diet to the same five-meal rotation of what I deem “acceptable.”
This first month has been a focused effort on cutting back my over-the-top eating (i.e. eating out 5-6 times a week, eating entire frozen pizzas, etc). This first month has been about cooking more, and just going smaller on the portion sizes. And it’s worked.
October 1st: 320.2
October 31st: 304.2
Exactly 16 pounds.
I also took a picture on day one and another one today.
I remembered this video today. It was filmed at the Runner’s World cover shoot two years ago. These days it’s hard to imagine being in a place where I was completely in love with running and the running world that comes with it. I want to get back to that place.
This is the scrapbook of my life and journey from morbidly obese and depressed to finding health and happiness. I have lost 120 pounds, run eight marathons, completed two Ironmans, and gone from depressed recluse to motivational speaker. Read more about me and this blog here. Or start from the beginning.
