Weight: 346 pounds. 34 pounds down since 2/1/2013, 50 down since 11/29/2012
It has been just over 7 months since I made the decision to change my health. Looking back, it was the biggest, and best, choice I have ever made. Instead of going to bed every night wondering if I’ll wake up the next morning, I wake up every morning looking forward to what the day will bring.
So what will the future bring? I don’t know for sure. I’ll eventually settle on a weight that I am comfortable living with for the rest of my life. I will then spend the rest of my life maintaining that weight. I know that I will never reach a real end of this journey until I reach my personal “Dead End”.
I’ll spend the next 30-60 years tracking my food. I’m sure I’ll eventually get to the point where I don’t have to put everything into a computer, I’ll just know the numbers in my head. But gone are the days when I ate what I wanted, calories be damned. I might go on a binge if I ever get the 3 month warning, but I think my friends would be OK with that.
I will continue working out. I’ll eventually find a way to fit Basketball back into my life on a regular basis, but I’ve also grown to enjoy a good morning jog. Let me say that again: I, Steve Young, like to jog. My oldest friends know how shocking that is to read.
I guess what I want to say is that once you get on this road, it never ends. The best journeys never do.
