Anonymous asked: Hey Dylan. I'm a few years younger than you but I went to EHS with you and I just want to say you're probably the biggest inspiration I've ever had in my life. Seeing what you did makes me want to exercise and eat healthy every single day of my life. I'm a senior and writing my college essays now and one of them is about the most inspirational person in my life, and although we were not friends I'm seriously considering writing about you. You are such a great person andihopeonedaywecanbefriends!
Oh my god I just saw this in my inbox and I honestly am left speechless right now. First of all, thank you so much and I couldn’t be happier that I could inspire something in you. Even if we weren’t great friends it doesn’t mean it’s too late—if ever you want to talk just talk to me on Facebook :) Thank you so much for your kind words and if you do write about me for your essay consider me honored, humbled, and forever grateful. Thank you :)
Anonymous asked: have you met your goals? You have stop posting and I was wondering if you are happy? I sure hope so.
Well it’s great that you noticed my lack of postings recently :) I did reach my goals but there’s a lot of stuff I didn’t realize would happen with all the weight loss so “happy” is still ways away
Zoinks where has the time and the motivation gone?
It’s been TOO LONG since I’ve last posted on this and for that I apologize.
It’s been an insane past few months.
Let me catch you up:
On Valentine’s Day, I weighed 187.8 pounds (woot)
After that, I fell off the dieting wagon.
This weekend, I weighed in at 196.2 (yikes)
SO HERE WE GO AGAIN KIDS!!
I’m seeing all of my friends in Colorado in SIX WEEKS
In that time I would like to get down to 185, making it 11.2 ponds I have to lose.
I’m getting my life back on track and making shit happen.
For those who still follow, thanks for the dedication :) Much love!
Keep strong and GET IT TOGETHER!!!
Anonymous asked: Hey, I'm overweight and have just started exercising and eating healthy etc and reading your blog has been such an inspiration!! I was wondering before this had you tried to lose weight? And if so, when you began this time did it feel different? Did you know you were going to succeed? Because I feel like that this time is different, but I'm not sure if that is just a feeling or actually means this time I will stick to it. Also what would be the best piece of advice you would offer? keep going :)
I had definitely tried losing weight before and time after time, I crashed and burned. I feel like this time, it definitely felt different in that I knew I needed to change and I knew once I did I would be so much happier in life. I had no idea whether or not I was going to succeed but I never let myself think that I wouldn’t. Waking up every morning, I would tell myself “you can do this” and I kept pushing no matter what pushed back against me.
My best piece of advice is this: your biggest, harshest critic is yourself. No matter what other people say or do, you alone are the only person whose criticisms you take to heart. This time around, tell yourself how proud you are and look to the future with hope not looming disappointment. Keep strong and believe you can do it :)
