As Chris Davis continues his journey towards the healthiest life possible, he continually reaches new milestones.  After officially hitting a milestone of 50% of his total weight loss last week, he hit another one over the weekend walking over 20 miles.  As he settles into his new life in Pittsfield and under the watchful eye of Dr. Jeff Godin and one of Spartan’s Founding Few Joe Desena he is achieving levels of success he never thought possible.  Here is his journal entry for March 7, 2012.

This weekend was a great weekend for me, I spent most of the weekend walking and I was able to walk over 20 miles, with an elevation climb of over 2,200 feet. I never thought I would walk 20 miles in a weekend. It funny to think I that soon will be doing that in a single day. I am so happy with the progress I am making here. In a few short months I will be walking 20+ miles a day a couple times a week. That is just going to be so cool!

This morning, my body felt good considering what I did to it over the weekend, but when I went to stand up I got a little light headed. Over the weekend Dr. Jeff Godin left me a glucose meter to try and keep an eye on my blood sugar levels when I get light headed like this. So I took emailed him and I ran the test. It was low, very low, so I ate a couple of oranges and I started to feel better. I guess this is something we are going to have to keep a close eye on days where I push hard to find my new limits.

It sounds like Mondays are now going to be my day to recover, so I have been taking it easy on the exercise today, and I have taken time to reply back to emails from fellow Spartans, and to go through and read the comments on Facebook and on the blog site. Thank you for all of your support, it is really helping me to keep my mind in the game.

    WOW…inspiring story Chris…so much so you’ve provided ME with the catalyst to finally stop my couch potato ways and get into the game. I have started my own journey to Sparta, being 331lbs at age 47, Type II Diabetic, Hypertension, Sleep Apnea…the worst shape of my life, I’m tired of being sick and feeling like crap.

    I want to get into condition good enough so that I can finish a Spartan Sprint come this December! Wish me luck! I’ll keep rooting for you as well!

      You can do it Richard, use Chris’ inspiration to keep moving youu forward. I weighed 338 on July 30, 2010 and last weekend I finished my first Spartan Sprint here in the Texas heat with a time of 1:33:00 and weighing 178lbs. I shed the sleep apnea machine about November of 2010 and haven’t looked back! No more pre-diabetic worries, no heart, blood pressure or cholesterol issues. Resting heart rate of 42 beats per minute. It IS possible and this training and the proper diet will make it happen. I’m pulling for both of you guys!! Keep rocking!
