My goal, creatively named The 929 Project, is to lose 90 pounds between September 29, 2008 and September 29, 2009.
After 4 months –
I am down (a little more than) 27.8 pounds. Official weigh in days are Mondays – and my scale is broken! I have been convinced, for some time, that the scale was dying, and this morning, it died. So, I’m going to go buy a new one, and I hope that I’ve lost a couple of pounds since my last official weigh in. Check back Monday to see how I’m doing.
I am now working out four to six days a week. I am also training for my first 5K. I can now run (almost) 2 miles, without stopping, compared to four months ago, when I could barely jog one-quarter of a mile.
What can I say? I feel like a new man. Seriously, I love going to the gym, I love feeling in control, and I love the fact that I’m losing weight. Even on weeks where my weight stays unchanged, I still feel good, because I’m doing the right things and becoming and healthier person.
124 days ago, I decided to stop eating refined sugars, starchy foods, and assorted junk. I also gave up caffeine and soft drinks. I radically changed my eating habits. Since then, I’ve stuck to my plan, and I feel better than I have ever felt in my entire life. Seriously, less is more.
I’m actually posting several articles a week, here at No. Calories Needed. Connecting with my readers keeps me motivated.
