Too Long Between Posts

I decided I needed to get a post put up. Like I said, I don't know who is still reading me, but I just don't want any of those folks to think I have submarined. Quite the opposite, I am thriving and happy with the direction I am going. I have had so much happens since the last time I put a post up that I can't even really recall it all.

As I have said over and over, I am not scale number guy anymore, I am clothes size guy now. Well I am in 3 new shirts I was waiting on. I have no clue what I weigh, but I know a size 18 dress shirt fits me now.

I actually have quit writing my calories down, and have become really good at just knowing I am under my calorie goal, or over it if that be the case. But whatever the calorie count for the day, I am not fascinated/obsessed/crazy about it. I have waaaaay more good days than bad.

I can run 3 miles again! I left the office yesterday and ran out a mile and a half and ran back. I did it in 39 minutes! I am getting there again!

I have more pecs and less boobs.

What I refer to as my whale hump in my belly (I have the weirdest looking stomach, right in the middle sticks out in a V shape) is disappearing.

I can't seem to sit still at home anymore. If the sky is somewhat clear, I am outside doing SOMETHING!

And most proudly of all, my wife is kicking my butt in getting in shape, and I am doing pretty good, so imagine how good she is doing! Today, we are going to get her fitted for her first pair of RUNNING SHOES!!

I could probably keep going, but it would sound a lot like bragging, and I am not that guy. I am just so thankful that God saw fit to give me the turn around I have been praying for over the last 2 years!


  1. Great post .... I am pleased for you.

    Take Care and .....

    All the best Jan

  2. I'm still reading you so thanks for putting something out. I'm glad to hear how good you are doing man and the Mrs. as well. Doesn't it feel liberating to stop counting calories? One day it dawned on me just how innacurate that whole process is. A medium apple could be anywhere from 70 to 120 calories depending on your version of medium. Once you start compiling all the potential error in each item you start to realize that even the most dedicated calorie counters can be off by as much as 10% every day.

    Anyway, keep it up my friend; you're an inspiration to us all!
