Had My Physical Today

I never take my health for granted. Just seven short years ago I was morbidly obese, pre-hypertensive and most likely pre-diabetic.

So when I hear lines like this is the best cholesterol readings my doctor has seen or that I'll most likely never develop diabetes (unless I were to suddenly revert to my old habits), I feel so happy.

My Goals For The New Year

I don't believe in New Year's Resolutions because I don't think they work. Instead, I would rather set goals for things I want to accomplish. I think it's much less pressure that way and it seems doable.

Whenever I set resolutions in the past, they were always about weight loss and they never worked. I would be like others... workout for a few weeks and stop going for a while after that. I would change my diet briefly and go right back to the junk food within days.

It's Now Six Years of Sustained Weight Loss!

I Am Rewriting My Story

I got this shirt from Dr. Mondo the other day. I am set to be on his show again in a few weeks.

I think this is an awesome shirt. I'm sure all of us struggle with at least a few of the items listed in it. Formerly obese people like myself still struggle with some of these items.

Strength Training After My Tummy Tuck... Feel Like A Beginner!

It's been a few weeks since I updated about my abdominoplasty. It is now 6 weeks post op and I am feeling great! I feel back to normal and back to working out. However, it feels as if I'm a beginner, despite making significant gains for months.

I know I will rebuild the muscle, but I feel like I lost so much by not working out. I have the sagginess in my arms again so I need to build up. My goal is to get back to where I was pre-surgery by January.
