A lof of people have been asking about my progress. Well, yesterday I’ve hit my “under 200 pounds” goal. Meaning, I weigh about 192 in the morning at my lightest, and at night when I’m at my heaviest I’m 198.
This means that I’m officially under 200 pounds. For the entire day! Yeah!
That picture above was taken when I weighed 260 pounds about two years ago. I weighed about 254 when I began my journey starting in January of this year. So in short, I’ve lost over 60 pounds in 2.5 months (12 weeks).
Want to know how I did it? Well, I mentioned my daily routines in a previous blog post. But a major “thanks” goes out to Anthony Alayon, owner of UniversityOfAbs.com.
I highly recommend his program.
I’ve never felt more energetic (my wife keeps telling my I’m a pain in the butt by how much energy I have) and alive. This feeling is totally worth the extra hour each day.
This reminds me of something Tom Venuto, author of “Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle,” and “The Body Fat Solution,” which I’m reading right now, said (words in brackets are my own and I’m paraphrasing a bit):
“What do you want? Short-term gain [like binge-eating] with long-term pain? Or do you want short-term pain [like working out] for long-term gain?”
That statement is powerful. And it’s a constant reminder of why I must keep going.
I’m not posting about my health progress on my blog as often as I should, but if you wand to follow my progress, I have a mini-blog (like a tumblog) at Posterous.com. Visit michelfortin.posterous.com and subscribe.
