Almost to my next big goal

It's hard to believe that I am where I am today. Just this time last year, I was struggling to walk because of lower back pain, and I was weighing in at over 360 LBS. My life was miserable. Because of my back pain, I was unable to eat all the time, which was a blessing in disguise. But in August 2010, I embarked on a journey to get a healthier life and get at a healthier weight.

My first goal seemed impossible. Many thought I was setting myself up for failure. 332 LBS at the time, I set a goal to make it down to 300 LBS. Within 45 days though, I managed to make it to my goal with only a change in diet. Since that initial weight loss, I have set up another goal of 280 LBS. Again, most sites and trainers say that I am setting myself up for failure. Today I weighed in at 283 LBS. Just 3 LBS short of my next goal, and I have to say it feels great.

I have at least one more goal in me. I am hoping to make it down to 260 LBS by February of 2011. I see this being a pretty good healthy weight for myself. Also, now that I do workout at Anytime Fitness, I will be able to put on some much needed muscle. Who knows, maybe I'll make a good monster.
