Lifestyle Accountability Show a couple of weeks ago, and the show will be aired April 1 or April 2 if you're interested.
I'm afraid I might not have managed to make a coherent narrative out of my story -- the problem is that this whole weight-loss thing has stretched out so long that it doesn't fit neatly into a before-during-after story. Especially since I have had several losses and regains. I am still waiting for the moment where this all feels like a success. I am hoping that it came out okay.
I think I can count myself as a successful loser/maintainer even though I am not at my ultimate goal. I can tell you that I feel much better as an active person bouncing around the 180-pound mark than I did as a sedentary 215-or-whatever with a mostly-starch diet. I never did weigh myself at my highest weight and I have destroyed most of the photographic evidence, but I know I felt terrible. They say that maintenance is successfully keeping off at least 30 pounds for more than a year, and I have definitely done that.
After my interview with Adam, I did have to ask him how he manages to release a podcast EVERY DAY. That's crazy. He said that he sometimes agrees with me. I'm looking forward to meeting him at Fitbloggin' and attending his podcasting session. I have daydreamed about doing a podcast of my own here and there, but I need to know more to see if it would be realistic.
