Starting over for the last time.

Almost exactly a year ago, I wrote this post. The level of commitment I had to my fitness at that point was astonishing. I was living, eating, drinking, breathing fitness and a healthy lifestyle. I worked my butt off for a solid 4 months and dropped 25 pounds. Then I slacked for a few months, but never gained the weight back. I got my grove back at one point and was just as committed as I was in the beginning. Then a massive storm hit my life pretty hard. I haven't shared the details on it, but it was pretty devastating to me. It essentially ruined all the hard work I had put into getting healthy. From that point on, I gave up hope. I felt like everything that was great had been stripped from my life, and I wasn't worth the effort anymore.

I gained back all the weight. I would still exercise every now and then, and a few times I even recommitted. Nothing though gave me the motivation I had in the beginning. Until now. Well, last weekend to be exact. Things had been set in motion before hand, but last weekend sealed the deal for me. So here we are. I am starting this journey all over again. Hopefully this is the last time I will have to start all over again. So now for some embarrassment...
