In October of 2009, I resolve to lose some weight. My goal was pretty ambitious. I wanted to get down to 145 pounds. At the time, I weighed in at a hefty 187 pounds (on a 5’4″ body…that is a lot). I hit my goal in July of 2010. I was thrilled to have attained my goal in just 9 months. However, I wasn’t convinced of my progress just yet.
I entered phase two of my program at that point and have been there up to now. My aim was to keep the weight off. In other words, I had worked hard over the last nine months to take the weight off, the new experiment would be if I could keep the weight off. As of this morning I weigh in at 141 pounds. I have held a consistent range of weight between 140 and 143 pounds for the last nine months. I would definitely consider this a success up to this point.
Okay, so that brings me up to the next phase of my program. Phase three of my program is going to be the “rebuilding” program. In other words, I am going to initiate exercise into my routine. I have a pretty active job, but I want to do more. I am not looking for the huge muscle-bound goliath look (now look those of you that know me in person stop laughing right now…you know what I meant). I simply want to firm up a bit. I can tell you being in my forties, and losing that weight makes me seem a bit “saggy” in places.
In this new program, I am looking to stay true to the way I have handled this entire process. I am not looking to go all fanatical with a conditioning program. I am looking to create a program that fits in with how I live my life. I was successful with the first two phases of this, so I certainly can see me being successful in this latest attempt.
