How is your personal fitness stuff going? You never talk about that anymore. Reading your journey to lead a healthier life inspired me to do the same and I’ve lost 75lbs in the last year. It’s been a life changing experience for me and it’s nice to finally have more self-confidence. I just wondered how you were doing with it. Still active?
I am still active. I have managed to tone up quite a bit and maintain my (just under) size 36 waist while still enjoying life. I still eat healthy, I continue the gym routine 3-4 days per week, and I have managed to avoid fast food this whole time (except for a few work trips where my whole team out voted me and there was nothing healthy nearby). I did add some muscle in the past year and I am working to tighten that up as of now, but I’m happy with how I look and am always seeking to improve.
I am really glad you are having such a success in your own journey and I am happy I could inspire you to lead a healthier life. I think many people are afraid to try new things and that sometimes drives them away from making major lifestyle changes like losing weight or eating healthy. I often get asked, “Isn’t eating healthy really expensive?” or “Don’t gyms cost a fortune?”, and my answer is always no. There are affordable ways to change personal eating habits, affordable ways to lose weight and lead a healthier lifestyle, and the only person they’re hurting by not changing is themselves. Being healthy for life is like a long distance run..sometimes, it’s tough, sometimes it’s glorious, and it requires dedication and discipline.
Life is full of challenges. A healthy life is a challenge with a HUGE payoff.
