For me, fitness is a passion, I just love reading about it, studying it, sharing it with people and so for me this lifestyle is easier that for most. That said, weight is and always has been my nemesis. Today, however, I won the latest installment of the Biggest Loser at work bu losing a total of 21lbs in 3 months. Add that to my journey and you have a total loss of 60lbs.
That’s right. SIXTY POUNDS!!!!
It’s not the first time I have done this kind of weight loss, but I am hoping it will be the last.
Many times we get so wrapped up in what we are doing that we don’t take a moment to recognize our achievements. The reason for this is that those of us with borderline obsessive personalities know that the second you take your foot off the gas you risk going off the road completely. For me, that is the final step in my final journey. The ability to step back for a moment, see what I have accomplished, congratulate myself, celebrate a little but then get back to work. In the past I have allowed the celebrations to linger too long, to allow the congratulatory process to lead me back to the place that I started. This time, however, I think I will be OK. My thoughts for celebration are more of the non edible variety whereas in the past, my usual victory dance was around a large pepperoni pizza and a 2 litre bottle of coke! I don’t know what I am going to do to celebrate my 60lb milestone but I know that whatever it is, it won’t get in the way of my 75lb milestone which is my next big goal. That would put me at around 217lbs which is slightly below my current goal weight.
Maybe then I will have that pizza…. with coconut flour crust 🙂
