De-Nickified: Is The De-Nickification Complete?
Posted 6/4/2013 2:55:00 PM

And finally after five months(and a couple of extensions) I have met the weight loss requirements Jason and Deb set forth. I suppose I should say something about how the journey was more important than the destination, but that would be a lie. The past two months has been make sure that when I stepped onto the scale at the end of May it said 219 or less.  I didn't care about how I did it or whether the methods I used were good for my health.  It was about making weight pure and simple.  

That's why I'm so glad it's finally over. Now I can stop worrying about it and focus on what, to me, this whole thing was really about. Pretty much every book and website out there will tell you that focusing on a weight is setting yourself up for disaster. And after five months I can confirm that it does make it all about the number and not about how you get there. 

I just want to keep having a blast lifting heavy ass weights at Crossfit Central, eating a balanced diet based on making better bad decisions and being surprised by the guy I see when I look at myself in the mirror. Certain people can worry all they want about me relapsing but I've been to the mountaintop and for the first time in probably fifteen years I don't feel like I'm fat. Trust me I know there's still work to be done, but after going through life like that why would I let myself get back there again? 

The De-Nickification may be technically over but the journey is forever.

As always please Like Restora Austin on Facebook and follow them on Twitter, and while you're at it show some love to Snap Kitchen and Crossfit Central. And me too I guess. You know, if you want to.
