The view from the finish line


We usually think of weight loss as a straight line, with a definitive starting point and a finish line. From my vantage point, now nearly eight years since I lost 120-lbs., it seems clear that it just doesn’t work that way.

There’s a starting point, yes, at least in the sense that we make a pivotal decision to change our eating and exercise habits. And then there are the weeks or months that we initiate those changes. We’re shopping for healthier food, and doing more cooking from home rather than eating out. Maybe we join a gym or start riding a bike to work every day. All of those behavioral changes become the healthy habits that carry our weight loss success forward.

This is a guest blog I wrote for The Hartford Mile. To read the rest of the post (it’s pretty darn good, if I do say so myself; you’re gonna wanna read it), please click here…

I’ve been experiencing foot pain recently—and I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me to turn my shoes over to look at the tread!!! When I did, I was horrified. No wonder I was having foot pain; my tread was worn thin. Yikes!!!
