I haven’t stepped onto this scale in over a month.
The desire and motivation to lose weight has always been there, but so have 12 hour days at the office and 3-straight weeks of rainy, “stay inside and eat snacks with my daughter while watching Dora” weather.
I’m coming out of my slump, though, like I always do.
I’ve always wanted to be able to say that I was able to lose 150 pounds. The number 150 is arbitrary, but with my body type and height, 194.4 pounds is probably pretty close to my “ideal” weight.
Even though posting has been scarce lately, I’ve still maintained a fairly active lifestyle. I’m still very much in love with fitness, counting calories, and helping others lose weight — I’ve just consumed too many calories on a daily basis. Weight loss — and weight gain — comes down to simple math.
It always has and always will.
Ultimately though, it’s hard to motivate others and promote calorie counting while weighing 235.8 pounds. It ain’t a muscular, ripped 235.8 pounds. It’s a soft, slow, and overweight 235.8 pounds.
I’m going to fix that. Not starting tomorrow, after my birthday next week, or after I come back from vacation — but today. Now.
Now has always been the best time to get things done.
