On the Road To Success

Last month I wrote this post, in which I officially and publicly announced my plans to lose 30 pounds this school year.

As of this morning, I'm 10 pounds closer to that goal :-) I wore long pants and had to cinch up the belt a bit more than I remember doing when school ended last June.

Congrats Darren...you are going to make me get off my dead ass and go to the gym. :<)

If going to the gym is a burden (and it was for me), you won't stick with it. Get a treadmill or an elliptical trainer or a stationary bike, the same kind of equipment you'd use at the gym, and use it at your own house while watching football games. Bought my first elliptical at Play It Again Sports (used equipment) for $99, about 3 months' gym membership.

Why lose weight?

Also, it seems like you could do 60 by the end of the year at that rate!

Why lose it? Because I think I look gross, and I don't want to have to be even more, larger, pants.

I don't need to lose 60. I think 40 would be great, but the goal is 30. I've still got a *long* way to go.
