Trying again.
Monday, October 09, 2017      2 comments

I've lost my job. Was laid off. I know two fat people who died of heart attacks in their 30s and 40s. I'm depressed, and a little scared. A lot scared. Time to do this for real. Total Weight: 279 pounds Approx. body fat: 35.2% Le... Read more

Back at it. Had a decent week, but also have done a reading. Guess what, losing weight is hard. This time I am attacking it like a rabid, angry pit bull. My goal by January 1st: - Lose 20 pounds of body fat - Lose 7% body fat by ... Read more

Saturday, August 12, 2017      2 comments

Was like I didn't even try. Well, maybe because I didn't. I am going to start adding a cheat meal - it's a necessary add I need to have in my life to counter the social requirement to eat and drink. It also requires that I start standin... Read more

Week 6 - Progress painfully slow.
Saturday, April 29, 2017      0 comments

Jesus H. Christ - very frustrated lately. But as soon as I say this is going so slow, I immediately think...well it's all on your shoulders buddy. Weight loss driven by lack of calories as opposed to exercise. Will be shooting to remedy ... Read more

Week 3 Recap. Slipped up.
Saturday, April 08, 2017      1 comments

...not going to go into too much detail. Had a pretty good week, then two days of eating crap and boozing derailed it all. Back on it. Simple truth: Under-eating and under sleeping lead to a loosening of discipline...and then it all goes... Read more
Someone asked me why I am focusing on eating plants...
Saturday, April 01, 2017      3 comments

My response: Couple of reasons for the focus on plants. Probably the main reason is that I have really started to dig deep into researching nutrition, the evidence is pretty compelling that a plant based diet is much, much healthier for th... Read more
Week 2 Recap: Losing body fat is more important than losing pounds.
Saturday, April 01, 2017      0 comments

Better week - not perfect. Kicking this thing off and using a 14 week weight/BF% tracker, I assumed that 14 weeks would be "Phase 1"...in all reality, I think this first fourteen weeks is "Pre-Phase 1". This is a time to adjust lifestyle to fi... Read more

Just getting back from a 4 mile walk on a glorious unofficial Spring day in Arkansas. Really needed the sun to get me back to the right state of mind. I kicked off last week and attacked the lifestyle with gusto. My exercise program was tight... Read more

Sunday, March 12, 2017      1 comments

Kicking off again, with firmness and discipline. Just came back from Carnaval in Brazil...it's bizarre to be the fattest person on a beach of hundreds of people. Many consider the week of Carnaval to be the true beginning of the year, so... Read more
Week 2: Amazing what simple activity can do.
Saturday, January 07, 2017      3 comments

Week 2 was busy, busy, busy....I lost weight but it was strictly due to more passive activity (walking in a metropolitan area as opposed to schlepping to work in a car) as well as pretty tight control of diet. I didn't pig out or do any happy h... Read more
