Doing something right...
Sorry if I come off sounding self-absorbed, but I'm thrilled. I started at the end of the winter at 326lbs. This morning, the scale read 294.6lbs. I'm down 31lbs! 14 of those have come off just this week. Very weird, but I'll take what I can get! 275 now seems within my reach. I'm wearing my 2XL shirts again instead of the 3XL, and there is plenty of fabric to spare on them!
The odd thing is, I haven't been on the bike since Saturday (weather, conflict in schedule, etc). I have been doing much better about my diet though. Whoever said weight loss was 90% diet and 10% exercise was on to something. I'm sure I'll plateau soon and have to start working much harder for the results, but I'll take the easy pounds too.
I feel immeasurably better than I did a few months ago. Finally getting my sleep apnea treated was really the key to even being able to get off my duff. For anyone who suspects they may have it, don't let another day of your life get away from you. Do whatever you have to do to get started. It changed my life the very first night.
