Dropping the Pounds

For years now I've said I wanted to lose weight. I'd do seasons where I'd go to the gym. I'd go without soda for a bit. But in the last few months I've gotten more serious about it. I had some bloodwork done in December also that showed some issues I needed to take care of. In the last few months I've dropped from about 217 down to 201 today. I can't wait to see the scale say 199!

At my heaviest in my life I was 235. It was when I was an intern at Saddleback, eating lots of fast food and stuff all the time....drinking as much soda as I wanted. It was actually a little hard to get in and out of the car at that point. I had to work at it.

All I've done now is start doing sit-ups at night, running during the week, and making some relatively minor changes to my diet (typically red meat no more than twice a week and soda or coffee no more than twice a week).

Hopefully I'll be healthy dad when baby Addison gets here!
