I don't know how you found my blog, but you did and just made my day. After 6 months of hard work you are the first person (other than my wife and mom) to read and comment on this blog. I was just looking at another blog about weight loss and they were getting a lot of comments and encouragement. I have been doing this for 6 months and have yet to have anyone outside my family discover this blog and to hear your comment is big motivation for me to keep going.
What you say about the weight fluctuations is very true, I am not going to let the scale numbers keep me for going down the right path. In the past 6 months I have gone from 325 to 255, from 50x30 pants to 38x30 pants and from an XXXL shirt to an XL shirt. I am hopefully going to be able to go to Disneyland soon and ride the Maliboomer ride that I was kicked off of last December and I know how good it will feel to fit in there. I am exercising regularly, I trained for and ran a 5K in May (28:47) and am running and working out still, training for a 1/2 marathon in November. Running was never really something I was into but it feels good to accomplish something.
Once again, thank you Gloria for your motivational comment, it really helps to keep me going at this!
