Our latest 30 day box of awesomeness has arrived. Well, day before yesterday, but whatever... 11 months ago Jackie and I made the best decision ever and took control of our health. We've had great success, but at the same time, we fell into the complacency trap, got back into a few of our old habits and while not giving back all of our gains, we have taken a step back. For me, I released over 40 lbs, most of it over the first 4 months, going from about 220 lbs to 180, back in my 32 inch jeans! Hit my workouts again and swapped a bit more flab for muscle. Then the "C" word hit. Cheat meals turned into cheat days, into cheat weeks and I won't talk about my baseball concession stand tab... I was 183 yesterday, a big deal? No. Do I feel as good as I did a few months ago when my eating was better? NOPE. Being healthy is a lifeSTYLE, not a life sentence. It's fun and Jackie and I want to help anyone who needs a little encouragement to be healthy, because this stuff works for us. I've been 250lbs and I can tell you where I am now is better for me. It's not about the scale, it's about feeling and being your best, keeping up with your kiddos, getting thru the day well. That said, we are hitting a REBOOT and being stricter with our regular meals over the next 30 days. It's a mindset. I went from 250 to 180 a few years ago, then relapsed and topped 220 again. The mindset is about noticing when you start to slip and make the corrections while small ones are needed! Whatever you do for your health, know you're not alone in your journey.
