Ditching the Flab, Anxiety and READY TO GROK!
After reading a couple journals and deciding I'd like to keep tabs on myself and track my progress I have decided to take the plunge. Right now I am on day four and I feel like this is working.
A bit of my background I live near Lansing, MI and I am 26 years old male. I am single and live in my mothers basement. I am an executive for an insurance firm in the area and I make a good salary so I actually moved home to pay off all my loans and debts, more then 3/4's done! I am stuck to a desk a lot of time so I try to take a lot of walks or just getting off my duff the most I can.
Outside of work I love spending time with family. I coach youth football in the fall for a team in Lansing and I love doing that and working with the kids. I have a 5 year old Australian Shepherd who I spend tons of time with and he keeps me active.
A little medical history. Other then being clearly overweight at 6'2" and 275 pounds (9/10/13) I suffer from anxiety and some depression which I medicate with Zoloft and Xanax, I would love to get off these drugs and hopefully with the change in diet and everything I can start taking less and less!!
Last year I lost a lot of weight going from 310 to 233 after a breakup by doing these diet shakes and working out daily. I never really liked how I felt during that time and then after I stopped the shakes the weight came back on when I started eating more SAD foods and drinking beer. The weight came back.... So I officially started my Journey monday morning 9/16. I will try and write daily. I weighed myself daily (same time every morning) and I will measure my waist every Sunday. Ready to grok!
Waist (right under belly button fattest point- 50.5"
Chest (at nipples) 49.5"
