Still moving along...

I was going through my blog and wanted to reprint this post from April of this year because I found it kinda inspiring:

April 30, 2009

Quoted from People Magazine: "Channing Tatum may have one of the best bodies in Hollywood. But when he isn't working, he's a regular guy with a taste for "beer and cheeseburgers." "Life is too short to miss out on the beautiful things like a double cheeseburger," says Tatum, 29."

Eight months ago, this was my thinking. Whenever I went out to eat, I would splurge. Not on dollars, but calories. My infamous saying was, "You only live once. I wanna be happy and eat what I want". The thing was, I wasn't happy eating what I wanted... not even close. Yes, Channing may have a "nice" body even though he eats cheeseburgers and beer (lucky bastard!), but I am far happier where I am in my life now than eight-months-and-33-pounds-heavier ago. I am no where near my healthy body weight but I am a hella lot closer than I was eight months. When I think back at how my life used to be... fast food for dinner after I got off of work at 11:00pm, going out every weekend and spending $100's on alcohol, not exercising, not doing anything... it's no wonder I exploded up to almost 180 lbs. But it's also so remarkable how some time, effort, and patience can change you. Since starting my weight-loss journey, I have not gone through any drive thrus, I have had only a couple of drinks (TOTAL) in the last eight months, and I exercise religiously 6 days of the week.

Yes, I have a long ways to go to get my "sexy back", but today it is not a question of if anymore, but when!

Nicely put! Or as I have heard it also said, "Nothing tastes as good as how thin feels."

Yay! I'm definitely with you, I used to want to eat all of everything now I'm enjoying tastes more and counting all calories. It's exciting to look back and see how far we've come!
