I started my weightloss journey a little over 2 months ago. I've tried the whole diet and exercise regimen before but found it way to easy to get off the wagon. I began looking around the internet for things that I could actually fit into my life that were easily obtainable and I found enjoyable.
I really have a loathsome relationship with cardio and find it tedious, boring, and usually doesn't help me that much. On the other hand I love strength and resistance training.
In 2 months I've lost 29 pounds (I started my tracker here a little late when I was at 285 but I started at 295) I know I'm losing it faster than what is deemed healthy but I feel excellent. I'm finally eating the right foods and using portion control. I have adopted the eat stop eat lifestyle. Basically I eat around maintenance all week but pick one or two days a week where I fast for 24 hours. This has really been a blessing for me and my busy liftestyle. Not having to worry about food for an entire day. It was a little difficult at first not eating but I have no decrease in energy or mood and the fat is shedding off all while I'm making strength gains in the gym.
I wanted to start this journal as a way to stay accountable and share my success with others.
