At the beginning of this year, I decided that enough was enough...it was time to lose some weight. Ahead of the birth of my third child, I wanted to make sure I was healthier, fitter and happier.
Tipping the scales at an unimpressive 224 pounds, it was about time, even at 6'1!
When I came back from vacation on January 2nd, I decided to do a few things...call 'em resolutions if you like:
- Attempt to lose 40 pounds
- Go back to the AWESOME weightwatchers.com regimen
- Not shave until I broke 200
- Share this with my community as a way of forcing myself to lose the weight or risk the humiliation of failing my community
I am heartened by the fact there is a blogging community out there doing the same thing.
Today, however I broke one of the resolutions...I shaved. Even though I have not broken 200 yet, I am 214 and 10 pounds lighter. It was a mini-victory, but truthfully I had to do this because my wife was at her wit's end with her yeti-like hubby.
The weightwatchers interface is amazing and although they could still do SO MUCH MORE in terms of making their program more conversation compliant, I am thrilled to be a customer.
And so, back to the diet, swimming at the local Y and facially-challenge growth incentives. Perhaps I'll share my grose "before" picture with you at the end of my journey, but until now I am boldened by the fact I have opened up to you all...
