Run Forest Run!!!

Saturday, August 19th, 2006

Well starting in June I went on a diet trying to drop 88 of the 313 pounds I had hanging around. Being that heavy sucked. I never had energy to go do anything, I couldn’t even walk because my knees and back would hurt so bad after only a few mins of walking. First I started out trying to walk but that was quickly nixed. I talked to some buds on IRC who I knew were big health buffs, and they suggested to me to try riding a bike since it would be no impact on my knees, and wouldnt strain my back. Up to the gym I went to get on a cycle. I started and was only able to make it 15 mins at a time, after a week or 2 I was up to 30 mins. I kept this up for about a month and didn’t even loose 8 pounds. Needless to say I was getting pissed off. Next I figured the changes I made to my diet just were not enough. I made more changes to the kinds of food I was eating, and then to the ammount I was taking in, and even steped up the workouts to twice a day and 5 to 6 times a week. From July 4th to right now I went from 306 to 273. Im now able to not only walk with no problems, but I am running 2 or 3 nights a week as well.

Now I feel great (well not as good as I would like but tons better). I still have about 50 more pounds to go to get down to where I would like to be, I think Ill be able to be there before Christmas. I’ve already gone from a 44 waist down to a 38, and I hope Ill be down to a 36 or 34 when its all said and done. Time to wrap this up and head out for a run. Take care 🙂
