Self Reduction Launch
Right now I'd have to revise that plan to about 10 pounds every year.
Either way, it's not happening. Instead, it seems that each year I'm adding pounds. There is no "going away" happening here at all.
Back to the drawing board, then.
I've done it before, and I can do it again. Lose a massive amount of weight, that is.
Years back I went on an awesome weight loss journey in which I lost 132 pounds, all over a reasonable amount of time, by exercise and a serious modification of my eating habits. I was in the best shape of my life, and I felt better than ever.
However, at the peak of my fitness, I suffered some broken bones in my left foot, sidelining me from my workouts. Follow that by a major abdominal surgery and then a right achilles tendon/heel bone surgery, and I've been out of the gym now for the last 2 1/2 years.
So. It's time to launch a new and improved SELF REDUCTION EVENT.
They say telling others of your plan makes it more real. Ok then. I'm putting it out there for all the world to see, so I'm accountable to keep on track with this. Those of you that are close to me can nudge me if you see that I'm getting off track.
I will use the first half of this year, specifically now through the end of June to modify my eating habits. Hopefully by then I will have lost some weight and perhaps feel up to beginning an exercise program on July 1st. At that time I will re-evaluate and redirect again if necessary.
Wish me well, please. This will not be easy.
