Taking Shape for Life - Week 11

Last Monday completed another week of my program to develop a fit, lean and healthy body. I lost another 5 1/2 pounds last week. To me, that is pretty amazing. Over the course of 11 weeks I have lost a total of 57 1/2 pounds.

I started blogging about my journey as a means to hold myself accountable. I figured that if I started slacking, you all would keep me in line and motivated. Now I blog about it because I am so excited about how well I am doing, and because it has not taken a whole heck of a lot of effort to get here. What is really cool is the fact that my success is not atypical, people everywhere are enjoying the same success that I am.

Eleven weeks ago I couldn't walk up a long flight of stairs without panting for breath by the time I got to the top. Last Monday I ran up those same stairs, twice, just for the heck of it.

This attempted take over of our health care system by the .gov highlights one very important issue. We need to become responsible for our own long term health. I am going to do everything within my power to stay as far away from a .gov run health care system as possible. Building a healthier, leaner body will go a long way towards achieving that goal.

The program is a simple one, not always easy, but simple. Pretty much has to be for me to be successful on it. As I have mentioned before, I am so impressed with my success, and with this program, that I decided that I wanted to help others see the same results that I am. If you are at all interested in losing weight and gaining a healthier body, head on over here to see if this program might be the right one for you too.

Glad to hear you're still getting fitter! I started the same system a week and a half ago and already lost 6 lbs putting me at 245lbs. I haven't weighed less than 250lbs for at least 4 years and I really was astonished when I stepped on the scale and this is just the beginning.

The simplicity really is what makes it work. Thanks again for the blog and your weight loss efforts!
