Back in the saddle

Today I seem to be back in control of my eating. Before I started binging I was at my dream weight of 175, I now weigh 202.4. If I lose 1 pound a week it'll take me over 4 months to reverse the damage I'd done, but at least I'm not binging anymore. I could have been back to 290 pounds before I finally recovered, that has happened to me many times before.

My 1st race of the season will be on April 1st. I was very excited about showing up to race at my dream weight of 175, but it could be worse. My Ironman is in the fall this year, that gives me plenty of time to get back down to a racing weight. Thank goodness for miracles like abstinence!


  1. great job! Well done. take good care x

    1. SO happy for you! Any length of relapse is not fun - my last one lasted 8 YEARS! Now working on year #3! So glad we are not in this alone. Hope you will check-out my blog at God bless.

  2. Hi,

    Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I read your blog as well. Will pray for you in regards of binge eating. I am glad to hear that you have a wife that pray endlessly for you. Be strong and trust in Him.

  3. Instead of trying to find an ideal weight, try getting to an ideal racing speed. I've been told way too many times I'm too big to be fast...I'll be sure to keep that in mind when I go under 9 hours in an Ironman. I live for speed, not for weight!

  4. That's great that things are better. Though I know how discouraging the weight gain can be, the fact the you did not regain it all is a victory to celebrate.
