Plateauville - COVID-19 edition
Tuesday, May 19, 2020      1 comments

Two months later... Still in a plateau, although I had a couple days post-excess/hormonal times where I bounced back up to 300 lbs. It took a little self-forgiveness because I never wanted to weight 300 again. Thankfully that was only for a cou... Read more

I've decided to not let this plateau get me down. I look at it positively that I have been able to maintain myself in this 10-lb range happily since early 2020, not stepping back up into the 300lbs life. I do need to kick my own butt, perh... Read more

It's official. Since Xmas 2019 my body has bounced around in the 290s. Down about 90 lbs from my highest weight, I am happy, healthy, moving better, and so proud of my progress. I have discovered a love for intermittent fasting, living my l... Read more

So yes, I took a real break from the everyday this holiday season. With not going to work for over a week, and not getting motivated to be in my own basement gym... I gained more than a few pounds but worse, feel like garbage. Thankfully I... Read more

Okay, not problems. That's just a joke. I have completed my first round of training from the Couch to 5 K app and while I appreciate it's enthusiasm on the last run, I did not complete 5km. I proudly managed to get 3.67km in about 35 minute... Read more

Woo! I promised myself that I would go down to weighing myself just a few times a week, M W & F, but today I just felt like I needed to step on the scale. Lo and behold, I have officially lost 90 lbs to date. I did join the plateau busting ... Read more

After a year and a bit of eating better and working with intermittent fasting I started noticing a distinct increase in my overall energy (and a wonderful decrease in my hunger levels). And with the small savings and gift cards I was able to gat... Read more
Impressing a health care professional
Thursday, September 12, 2019      1 comments

I didn't start this journey to do anything drastic. Just to weigh less and put less stress on my body in general. My health care professional has been my cheerleader and support for 18 months, starting with giving me a goal number to aim to eat ... Read more

Okay, I know it's only 5lbs more than the last time, but every pound is worth celebrating on this journey. I got to thank my health care person last weekend when I told them that I had lost 20% of my body weight with their guidance and sup... Read more
Celebrating 20% lost
Thursday, August 08, 2019      3 comments

Okay, it just dawned on me that, oh yeah, I've lost 20% of my original body weight now. That's cool. There's an overall calmness and feeling of success that I wasn't expecting by hitting that number. I guess it calls back to when my OBGYN mentio... Read more

I always want to have the right tools for the job, so with my birthday presents from family I was able to purchase new work out clothes & shoes. I seem to have hit every sale at each store I visited and found great trail running shoes which shou... Read more

Yeah, I couldn't wait. I have to celebrate 75lbs lost. In the grand scheme of things, I would have usually given up and re-gained this weight by now. Having a network or support is so, so important. The accountability to someone else has been t... Read more

Happy, proud and motivated. That's how 70 lbs lost feels this morning, especially when I didn't gain weight over a long weekend with some bad eating. I have started and mostly successfully done intermittent fasting for around 75 days now. I... Read more

Thursday, May 23, 2019      2 comments

417 days have passed since my initial weigh in a 385 lbs. The heaviest I've ever been and other than having sore joints, I felt like I was in decent shape (albeit larger than I want). Now, less sore, with more energy and just feeling better over... Read more
