My Story

On Monday, May 31, 2010, I embarked on a mission to lose weight and to get into the best shape of my life for my wedding. For a long time that mission was a success until life started getting stressful and food became a way to cope with that stress. To make a long story short, the mission fell short before my wedding day was here. And to make things even worse, I stopped eating healthy, exercising, and blogging for over two years. I now have a very beautiful wife and baby boy but my health is still crap. So to turn things around, I am brining back "The Heavy Man" and the "Mission to Healthy."

Day #107 - Chasing Another Milestone

I had a much better day today then I did yesterday at work. I woke up this morning determined to not let what happened yesterday ruin my today. But I have to be honest with you all, my day started off good even before I left for work. And I attribute my good morning to the positive results I have been getting from my new cardio based workout routine. I have mentioned it before and I will say it again, I am happy about how serious I have been taking my mission. I have been putting 100% into getting healthier and losing fat, that I have actually changed my life around for the better. Taking the time to research and to understand what is best for me has really paid off in the last few months.

Anyway, since I have started my new workout routine, I have been able to break through the plateau I was stuck in. I also found out last night, after doing my body measurements, that I actually lost another inch around my waist as well. However, the thing that has me pumped up the most is that I weighed in this morning at 252.4 lbs. This means that I am so close to reaching another milestone for my mission. As of this morning, I am .4 of a pound from officially reaching 50 lbs lost, since Day #1!!! I can't even describe how excited I am to be at this point in my mission. If you were to ask me on Day #1 if I thought I would ever make it to this point, I would have said no. But now if you were to ask me today, if I would be able to make it until my wedding day, I would say I am 100% sure that I will stick to this mission until that day. I would even go out on the limb to say that I will stick to this mission and my new way of life forever.

Chasing this next milestone of 50 lbs lost seems so close. I actually can't wait to finish this blog and climb into bed because I want to see what I will weigh in at tomorrow morning. I find that setting these kind of goals is a big help with sticking to the mission. I actually visualize what I will look and physically feel like on the day of my wedding. All I can say is watch out to every guy that has ever graced the cover of a health or sexiest man alive magazine. There is nothing stopping me now!

With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:

Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man - 38 Points)
(I am currently following the Weight Watchers Points System)

Breakfast - 2 Eggo nutrigrain waffles, with an apple, a serving of Light'n Fit yogurt, and a serving of sugar = Points 5
