THANKS! yeah medium shirts and 32 pants LOL ... was wearin a 44 pant last year this time.. smdh.. ill never, EVER EVER be that weight again ..
189 this morning .. down a pound last week after massive cheating (dairy/sugar), but also ive been adding veggies and coco oil/butter back into the diet which seems to be helping a LOT ...
thanks again to all that keep me motivated
189?!? Did you break down and cry, like you said you might?
Congratulations! Just a few more weeks, and a few more pounds...you can do this!!
188 this mornin ... :)
didnt cry yet .. its insane how 15-20lbs doesnt really feel like i lost much? i dont feel that much smaller?
i have 5 weeks til my 1 year anniversary ... it would be awesome to lose a pound a week going forward
ive been eating more, more often, and trying hard not to cheat with dairy (it just isnt good for me), but ive been having more sugar LOL ... it seems my body can handle that.. .thank you all for the support, especially zippy, you should REALLY join our little group on facebook zippy! look for primal/paleo lifestyle
back to the push!
Echo to all that I got totally captivated by this story and read it start to finish. Mad props man....
This journal. Wow.
This is just what I needed to motivate me. For the first time in my life, I am over 300 pounds. I feel so ashamed.
Thank you so much.
thank you all ... that is why i bothered to start a journal, to help friends and strangers see the progress and how easy it was .. how much better i felt, etc..
still pushing ... 188.2 this monday ... if i remember right last week it was 188.8 ... but progress none the less.. if im honest, i have been having WAY too many cheats .. dairy/sugar 2-3 times a week in the form of ice cream, sundaes, shakes, etc... just been hard to avoid because it didnt slow me down weight loss wise ... but it does bloat me like crazy and i dont feel nearly as good ... the wife and i both agreed we gotta give this crap up and get back to 95-100% ..
i need to keep focusing and keep the slow loss going ...
187 this morning .. like 187.5 to be exact ...
REALLLY need to stop cheating with sugar and dairy .. its been 1-2 times a week lately for a sundae, ice cream, frozen yogurt .. just tough its one of my favorite things in the summer .. but they bloat me and make my weight loss stop or even make me gain for a few days ..
just checkin in ... 3 weeks til my bday ... 3 weeks to lose 2.5lbs ..
ps - found old doctor info that put me at 310lbs June 2011 ... wow ... updated starting weight
with 2 weeks exactly until my 1 year anniversary, and finding myself slightly sugar addicted again, I have decided not to weigh in until my 1 year anniversary (day after my bday) ... that also marks the start of a stay-cation week with my wife at home ..
im doing a 24-48hr fast started last night, and making sure im 100% to reset my sweet tooth .. been having FAR too much sugar .. doesnt matter if i can still lose weight matters how i feel (bloated, slugish, always hungry, etc) ...
im sure i can hit 185 by my 1 year, but more importantly i am focusing on getting back 98-100% ...
ps - might need to set my goal weight down to 179! thinking it over
Hi Todd! I've been out of town for the past two weeks (kayak circumnavigation of Long Island) but had to check back in and see how you're doing! It sounds like you will totally hit your goal of 185. Fingers crossed, and positive energy.
I'm so glad you're staying honest with yourself, and working and working!!
Thanks from all of us...
Todd, you are a champ. This journal is very inspiring so thank you for starting it!
