Last year, I introduced the Social Media Slim-Down, a weight-loss support group that, over the course of several months, totaled hundreds and hundreds of pounds gone forever. It was a tremendous success for everyone who participated – except for me. I failed at listening to my own advice.
This morning, I stepped on the scale and saw bad, bad, bad numbers. Worse numbers than I’m used to seeing on a scale.
I weighed in at 205, which, for a 5 foot, 8 inch guy like myself, is not too good. There are other factors why this isn’t good for me, specifically, but we won’t go into those today.
So, while the Social Media Slim-Down was about a group effort, my new initiative is about getting myself where I need to be.
With that being said, today is the official launch of Operation 25!
What is Operation 25? Operation 25 is my personal life/health/fitness program that will help me get from 205 lbs. to 180 lbs.
How long will it last? As long as it needs to. I am not racing a clock – I am going to make sustainable, long-term life changes that will facilitate a 25 lb. weight loss. It could take a few weeks…it could take a few months.
Who’s involved? I have a two-person support team:
Can I (meaning you) be involved, too? Sure! I’ll post and tweet updates and tips that I find helpful or comforting or alarming. I have no training or certification (outside of being a Men’s Health subscriber for 4 years), but I’m trying to change my life before it gets too late.
Feel free to chime in with hints and advice – I sure need it!
Coming soon, I’ll discuss the tools I’m using, including the coolest sneakers on the planet, an iPhone app and more!
