    the journey of a thousand steps...

    Day Zero
    Weight: 304.2 pounds
    BF %: 48.2%
    BMI: 42.5


    I realized recently I could lose 100 pounds, and only barely be out of the ‘obese’ range.

    My BMI classifies me as morbidly obese. I am literally so obese, I could die from that alone.

    I also have high blood pressure, poor cholesterol, and high glucose/A1C. And all of that comes back to my weight, as does the low testerone, sleep apnea, macular degeneration.

    If I lost 100 pounds, I could still be overweight, but who knows what my health could look like then?

    It's past 10pm at this point, so I'm starting tomorrow. Tomorrow, I will start Vitality. Then I hope to do Baseline, Foundation Light, and Foundation. Also, with spring starting, I want to get back out there on hikes and walks with my boys as well.

    I don't want to lay any long term plans, and end up burying myself in intentions with no starts. So, that's it-- 4 months to start.



    the journey of a thousand steps begins with a single step, and I'm ready to take that first step.

      Good luck! I live in the South Hills, and if you are looking for a great place to get outside, the Montour Trail is great. Not sure exactly where you are at, but there is a place to get on in Robinson too!

          Welcome! I think it's very sensible to not plan too long term, and I wish you all the success on your journey!
