Time to renew...

Monday, December 28, 2015      0 comments

Well, ever since the surgery I've been pretty lax in keeping up the good habits. Of course I couldn't go to the gym for a few weeks, but that was done a couple weeks ago and I still haven't gone. And I haven't been paying nearly enough atte... Read more

Surgery update:

Tuesday, November 17, 2015      2 comments

Great news: They were able to complete the procedure laparoscopically. I was in the hospital about 11 hours, then sent home to recover. Apparently among the contents of my gall bladder were 3 "golf-ball" sized stones! I'm honestly surp... Read more

The gall of some bladders!

Alright this may be a little long, forgive me. I got woken up a bit before midnight by some pretty severe abdominal pain. Couldn't get back to sleep for several hours, it was some pretty excruciating stuff. At work today it got worse, ... Read more

It's been a while...

Several weeks since my last entry..... Not much has been happening really. Weight loss is kind of at a stand-still due to a combination of health issues, life issues, and bad-choice issues. I think I'm recovered to the point I can star... Read more

Random update because random update

Friday, October 09, 2015      2 comments

I haven't made an entry in almost a week so I figured it was time. As of last weigh in I was under 348 so the 350's are behind me. I'm declaring today a cheat day (mostly because 2 out of my 3 meals are being provided by work, and I w... Read more

When you mess up, stay up.

Saturday, October 03, 2015      3 comments

It's easy to give up when I mess up. I had about a week and a half where I wasn't tracking, wasn't going to the gym, and wasn't really trying all that hard to keep the lifestyle change going. The last few attempts have made have been t... Read more

The 350's are almost behind me....

Wednesday, September 30, 2015      3 comments

Things have slowed down after the first month of drastic weight loss. The last 8 or 9 pounds have taken as long to drop than the first 20 did. But, it's still coming off! As of this morning's weigh in I was at 351.8, so just a smidge under ... Read more

Update and such...

Tuesday, September 29, 2015      1 comments

Alright, here's a long overdue update. I've had 12 days of laziness, but kept my eating mostly in control, just haven't made it to the gym for nearly two weeks. Basically, work and school and home life coincided in a gigantic crapstorm... Read more

Been a rough few days...

I normally work out on Friday, but I had to host a bachelor party for a friend. I was his Designated Driver, so I didn't consume a lot of empty alcohol calories, but we did buy some pizza and I kinda pigged out. Also, on Saturday I had... Read more

Another small victory.....

Around a year ago I bought a shirt from our company store, to add to my collection of company-branded business apparel that I have begun collecting since moving into a management role. Even though it was the same size as all other shirts fr... Read more

I doubt I'm the only one who has encountered this. A team member of mine brought in a huge box of donuts today. (Seriously, what is it with office jobs and donuts? They are so often associated with cops but really, I think the true face of ... Read more

Pushing myself into a better workout.....

Thursday, September 10, 2015      3 comments

I've kind of hit a point where my workout wasn't as effective as it used to be - my physical condition (while still old and busted) has improved a lot in the last two months. When I first started in late July, I began by just doing a few mi... Read more

Bad News/Good News Scenarios and other ramblings:

Wednesday, September 09, 2015      5 comments

Bad News: I'm only down 1.4 pounds so far this month. Which is actually still decent progress, just a far cry from last month where I dropped 18 pounds over 30 days. Good News: I'm still 12+ pounds below my "goal line." And, I'm still movin... Read more

Progress is still being made...

Friday, September 04, 2015      2 comments

I've definitely hit that point where progress slows down. From late July to late August, I dropped 18 pounds in a 30 day period, which is basically .6lb/day of loss. Pretty phenomenal I think, especially for not doing any crazy starvation/fad di... Read more

My pants fit better today.

Monday, August 31, 2015      6 comments

This makes me happy. At my recent heaviest (390+) some of my nicer work pants were getting a bit snug. Today (~360), I noticed that they fit almost perfectly. This is a great feeling. Who knows, another 30lb and maybe I'll h... Read more
