So I’ve always been a bit on the heavy side. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t considered fat. Two and a half years ago I decided to make a change. At the time I was almost 230lbs. I was right on the line between overweight and obese. I worked on exercise and diet and got down to 170. As with everyone I lost focus and over time I ended up back over 180. Well I’ve decided to redouble my efforts this winter. I’ve signed up at the university’s rec center and have been trying to go 2-3 times each week. I’ve got down to 182 as of this morning. My goal is to make it down to 160 by next April. I’d love to here other people’s stories about weight issues or loss. It helps to have a community of ideas and stories to keep one going. Weight loss is a marathon not a sprint.
