Just a brief update on my goal of getting fit.
I am now down to 198 lbs. I have not been under 200 lbs. in at least 20 years. It is a great feeling and I have now lost 69 lbs. in 21 months and I am only 13 away from my goal weight of 185. I cannot remember the last time I felt this good physically and I do not want it to go away anytime soon.
I still have that belly action that prevents me from going to the beach sans shirt. To rectify this I started DDP Yoga last week. Holy shit it is kicking my ass! Monday consisted of about 30 minutes spent learning the basics, which my body handled surprisingly well. Wednesday was a full hour of going over the basics again and then doing a 25 minute energy boosting routine. I moved my body in ways that I did not realize were possible and actually broke a serious sweat which I used to avoid as much as possible. Friday was another 25 minutes of the same energy routine and my body is definitely feeling it which is a good thing.
In week one things were not easy but I did my damndest to stick with it and learn the correct way to exercise. Over time I know DDP Yoga will help me to get fit and I cannot wait to see how far I will have come by the end of the month, but first I need to get past week 2!
