Actually 9.86%, but who is counting?
I posted yesterday about being in a hurry, and I am going to continue on that thread. Today, my wife and I woke up really early, and so did everyone else it appears. I have been thinking I am behind, if that is possible, in my weight loss and I need to hurry things up. That is preposterous. Indeed, I am a not doing everything I can do right now to get to where I want to be in 329 days, but I have time; but it must start today.
I find that if you try to hurry your weight loss or have TOO lofty of a weight loss goal, you will lose weight but it comes back – the Yo-Yo effect. Also, skinny is not fit. I am looking to be fit. I want to have the body I need to do triathlon, surf, bike, run, play with my kids and hike the shit out of these here mountains. I don’t need to be skinny, I need to be healthy and fit.
I am not in a hurry, not should I be. I am hoping to average 2.5-3 pounds weekly over the course over the year. of course at first i will be losing more like 5-6 pounds, but that tapers off pretty damn fast, and that is something not to hurry.
I am also not in a hurry to see these two girls grow up. Sooner than later, they will be driving, dating, marrying, get pregnant, etc. I do not think my heart is ready for that. Today diapers, tomorrow a shotgun. These are two of the many reasons for me that I want to lose weight.
