In this post I will continue with my fat loss progress for the remainder of 2014. Every Wednesday I took a shirtless picture of myself on my iPhone and emailed the picture of myself with my goal weight, actual weight and other details like my belt loop and activities I was doing. The text of these emails will be in the caption below each photo. I went through ups and downs, successes and failures, wins and losses but I came out on top. It's really great to see these pictures again and revisit this dramatic change I made in my life. I hope you get something out of it.
This is where it ends. I stopped logging my progress at this point. The initial goal was 175 but I was very satisfied with my progress up to this point. I had completely changed my appearance and my habits. Everyone I knew commented on my weight loss. Everyone. It was weird. Once I shaved my beard, I freaked out when I looked in the mirror. I honestly didn't recognize myself. It's a very strange feeling not to look at yourself and recognize what you see.
I rode out the rest of the year hovering around 185 and feeling great. Riding my bike and being active. I got my road bike in August 2014, a Cannondale CAAD 10. I loved it. I was out every weekend.
Life was good, very good. New body, new bike and a new lease on life. My interest in road bikes eventually led to an interest in mountain biking as well. I was hooked on all things with two wheels.
This is where things get... complicated shall we say? Until next time.
