Where did the time go?



It’s been about 8 months since my last post and, for all intents and purposes, this blog was abandoned.  So, anybody reading this probably thought I went off somewhere and drowned my sorrows in tubs of ice cream and mountains of french fries.

Nope…didn’t happen.

I actually have some good news.  I didn’t stop on my weight-loss journey.  Even though it’s not a fast as I would have hoped, I am still well on way to reaching my goal.

To date, I have lost around 65 pounds and for this first time since my early 20’s, I weigh less than 240.  If you’re do the math, in July 2013, I had gone back up to over 300 pounds.

Granted, I am at no risk of blowing away but, this weight loss has made me more energetic and focused.  It has also done wonders for my self-image and confidence.

Still, I am not done.  I still want to  get down to 200 pounds and even have a stretch goal of 190 pounds.

So, if anyone wants to offer up some insight or healthy tips/tricks, I’m all ears.

Also, in case you hadn’t figured it out…I’m back!
