This is an interesting blurb. For years and years and years I’ve been trying to figure out what kid of theme to use on this blog. I mean, I only bought LarryRivera.com because it’s my name. I never like the idea of branding my name for business. Somewhere someone told me I should, so I did.
Unfortunately to often you have to go through great pain to grow. Who wouldn’t like a easy pill to swallow? Today’s thought is just this: If you want something bad enough you will do whatever it takes to go out and make it happen.
It was while I was enjoying my wedding anniversary with my wife. I realized that I have yet again climbed the weight scale. When I was 30 I decided I needed to loose weight and get into shape. Well I did just that over the course of a year and half I went from 228 to 180. I felt great, I felt like was 18 again.
I was doing good for a few years. Then it happened, my treadmill broke and at the time I didn’t have the money to repair it or replace it. It kind of got me depressed a little. I ultimately back slid all the way back up to 226 lbs. So what took me a year to get off my body took me about the same time to put back on my body.
The first time I was on my weight loss journey I lost my weight via lots and lots of exercise. It got to the point where I had to work out an hour and half every other day just to maintain my weight. The reason was because I really wasn’t watching what I was eating.
Congratulations, you’ve made it to the end of this article which is something not everybody does. Anyone who has hung in there this way now has the information and facts to utilize on #KW1# .
Well my friends another week down. I feel differently this time around. When I was 30 I didn’t bother paying much attention to the way I ate. I simply worked my ass off. I found a picture of me back in 2009.
Back then I was a man on a mission. I pretty much have been on the heavy side most of my life.
I finally came to a place in my life where I felt I needed change. I would like to mention that although I say heavy. I have always been strong and fast.
I have always been active, I played sports outside, I lifted weights when I was a teenager and young adult. And then there is martial arts.
Even though I was heavy set, I still trained and had a high level of martial skill.
I figured at 30 I may as well look the part. What happened to me was that part of my regular training was jogging on the treadmill. I enjoy doing that. It’s a chance for me to reflect on my life and the directions I want to go. My old treadmill finally broke that threw me for a loop. I got so use to having that piece of equipment that I sort of went into a slump. On top of that I was having the best internet marketing year of my life.
The combination was I went from 184 lbs you see me in the picture above all the way back up to 226 lbs. Terrible I know! I am about to be 39 and staring down 40 I don’t want to go into my 40’s over weight. Rather than working out like crazy I am actually paying attention to how I eat.
This time around I am incorporating all the things I found to be helpful throughout the years and weight watchers ranks up there and I’ll tell you why. Weight Watchers really doesn’t tell you how to eat. What they do is they tell you what it’s going to cost you to eat via the point system.
I like figuring out how much food is going to cost me because I can monitor the amount and type of foods I choose to eat. Currently I am dropping weight every week and it feels good. Here is a picture of my current weight loss track.
