A Perfect Version of Myself

Losing Weight is Hard

I’m more than halfway there!!!!

When I started doing this thing called weight loss, I realized that I would have to lose 183 lbs in order to hit my goal and it seemed impossible.  It seemed obscene to think that I would ever be able to lose that much weight.

While I still have A WAYS to go, I know that it’s possible.  Today more than any other day I believe in my very core that I am going to do this.

I lost 2.8 lbs this week, catapulting myself over the halfway mark.  I feel like I’ve climbed a very steep mountain and am now getting to look down the other side.  Sure, it’s still tough to go down the mountain – sometimes it’s tougher than going up – but I know I can do it because I’ve already been able to accomplish so much.

I’m going to a baseball game tonight (Jays vs Red Sox for any baseball fans out there) and I’m sitting in a luxury box with my work crew.  I’ve been concerned about the ballpark food (and drink – I haven’t had a beer since December).  I’m still in the running for my Vegas goal and going to a food free-for-all is certainly not a good idea. 

This weigh in and the milestone it provided may help me behave myself.  I’ll let you know how it goes.
