Today I have accomplished the largest weight loss I have ever had in my life… beating a 75 loss that took me a year and working out everyday back when I was 18-19…
76 pounds in 127 days done by diet only! Just straight, hardcore calorie counting and limiting… and at age 50 (now 51)… I weight the lowest I have since August 19th, 2008… that over 6 years ago… I must say I am very proud of myself right now!
Now.. just for kicks… If someone gave me 76 pounds of:
- Gold (at today’s price) it would be worth $1,327,675.40
- Silver (at today’s price) it would be worth $19,395.20
- Gasoline at the $2.505 (at the national average) it would be worth $30.22
- Dollar bills, they would be worth $34,504
- Quarters, they would be worth $8618.25
- Pennies, they would be worth $13789.20
I am not going to lie.. it has been a difficult process… in the process of losing 76 pounds I have gained (backtracked) 49.8 pounds.. so in actuality I have lost 125.8 pounds. In the last 127 days my motivations have waned and priorities changed… plus you are trying to control and in some cases reverse what you know.. what you have done for many years or even your entire life…
I got my old home movies converted to DVD and picket them up last week… I haven’t been able to watch them you (no time at all really) but I skimmed through them and one thing I saw really made me think about what I was brought up with as normal… it was a scene from one Easter… probably around 1969.. I was around 6… it’s me and my sister, obviously excited that the Easter bunny had come… the dining room table, which was about 5 feet by 4 feet was COVERED in candy… all kinds of different sugary treats.. it was a massive pile of candy just for the two of us… that is my normal… I am told as a young child that I would eat sticks of butter.. just butter… and they let me do this?!?!?
This is an uphill, life long fight, and I have succeeded to this point.. but I can’t stop… now the focus has to be on the remaining 123.2 pounds to my goal.
