There are days when the sun rises and sets without any distinguishable features. The hours seem to slip by without any fanfare and without incident. Then there are the days when something happens, something so impossible to believe that the world itself hasn’t stopped turning. Today was a day like that for Chris Davis. Today, he became half the man he once was.
Here is his journal entry for today.
Last night I left the office, and walked back to Spartan Camp, we have decided to add a second climb up the mountain in the afternoon to help keep our progress on track. The walk went great, I was running a few minutes late for kung-fu, and I will just have to make sure I get out of the office a few minutes earlier to make sure I am not late for kung-fu today.
This morning, I was woken up by Joe and the film crew… There is nothing better than waking up to a camera recording. It took me back to my days of being on-call as a Network Engineer for Comcast. Talk about going from 0-60 in 15 seconds, that will do it.
After waking up, we drove down to the Bikram Yoga Studio, where I had my second session, I feel that I did a lot better this time, but I know I have a long way to go. I the only part I had a real problem with was lying flat on my back… I guess it is a side effect of being so heavy for so long. I am sure that as I continue to lose weight, and get more flexible that this will work it way out like the other issues I have experienced so far…
Then came the big news. After Yoga, we weighed me and I am down to 344.4lbs. That means I have now lost over 50% of my original weight when I began this journey. I am literally half the man I was and I feel great!
(Note from Chris: I really need to take a minute and thank my fellow co-workers located in the Detroit XOC, Atlanta XOC, and Central Division Offices. Without your support I would not have made it this far. I also need to personally thank Wayne Pennington, for watching over our servers in Detroit, and Jimmy Gatt for watching over our servers in Atlanta, during my leave of absence. Also I need to thank Shane Portfolio for inviting me to join him during the Atlanta Spartan Sprint Race; his invitation changed my life forever.)
