Welcome to my #firstworldproblems post.
I make a good living, sitting At my desk all day. I can take breaks at any time and eat whatever I want.
I’ve nothing to complain about except a lack of self-discipline. That freedom to eat has been trouble.
Over the last few years, I’ve drifted into being overweight. This is about where I am medically, around 218lbs:
I’m not alone in this. But I’ve been inspired by a few people lately:
- Steven Johnson, my friend from Atlanta, who took himself from my situation to competing in Ironman events.
- Chris Coyier, who’s written about his health a lot.
- Merlin of Chaos blogging his progress.
Here’s where I’d like to before the end of the year: 180lbs and in the middle of the Normal zone, rather than the Overweight zone.
Until the end of the year, I’ll blog my progress to keep myself accountable.
If you have any tips, or if you’ve blogged your road to better health, let me know in the comments!
