Podcast alert: Lifestyle Accountability Show

I know I blogged about this before but I can't find the post. I did my interview for the 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.


  1. Cool! Can't wait to listen AND attend the session in Savannah!


  3. Thanks for the kind words! We actually just moved to a 3-per-week publishing schedule this week so that we have some bandwidth to tackle some video, etc. in addition to the podcast. Really looking forward to connecting in Savannah!
