I started my weight loss journey in June of 2010. Since then, I've lost over 100 lbs. It hasn't been easy, but I refuse to give up. I want to be as healthy as I possibly can and lose over half of my original body weight.

Weekly Weigh-In: Finally Facing the Music

Well, folks. You ready for this? A week and a half ago I weighed in at 284.4.

What does that mean? It means that I’ve put back on roughly 21 lbs. from my lowest weight of 263.4 at the end of May.


I was mad at myself that I let it go this far. Then the anger turned to sadness, and I spent a few days moping around, feeling sorry for myself.

But then I sorted out my shit and focused on the fact that I am in control of my behavior. I am not only in control of what I put in my mouth, but I also control how I respond when things don’t go according to plan.

So I kicked my ass into gear and ate right. Consistently. And then this happened…

Last week: 284.4

This week: 281.6

Loss this week: 2.8 lbs.

Total loss: 115.8 lbs.

Feeling great. It’s been a LONG time since I’ve had a loss like that. Keep chugging along, keep making progress. That’s really all I can ask for, right?
