3 Years and Goin Strong

I've posted this before but this video captivates my purpose of all this.

It's been 3 years yesterday since I embarked on my journey to fat loss. At 225 lbs 3 years ago - I'm healthier now than I ever was at 35 years of age. I credit a good friend Ed for the inspiration to initiate this journey he was so nice to help me start off 3 years ago. He certainly started the path to a healthier lifestyle for me and I always manage to thank him for that every time I can.

Keyword: Health - that's what it's all about. It's not a 6 pack, it's not how we look to others - it's what we feel inside where we get that motivation and contentment to keep on going. Don't do it primarily for others - but a good friend always reminded me to do it for yourself. We owe our bodies that much.

It's always been about gradual fat loss. I haven't tipped over 175 lbs in more than 2years. Never tipped more than 225 in 3 years. And I've kept if off.

Take care of the body that makes you appreciate the great life you have around you - your family, your friends, your job, your house, your car..whatever it is, being healthier makes a big difference.

Better health, longer life.

Here's to 3 years and beyond...find your motivation - IN YOU.

Great job in getting where you wanted to go. Awesome job maintaining and improving on that!

FYI, you are one of a handful of people I point to when showing 'how much we can really improve ourselves'.
