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 #190 - A "Front Shot" Comparison

Today was another long, yet productive day. I had meetings the entire morning that answered some very important questions that I had coming into today. And now that I have those answers, I can proceed with moving forward on even more important objectives. I also managed to complete some developmental objectives as well and hopefully this big event of mine, will start to take shape very soon. I know that there is a ton of hard work getting put into this, I only wish that the out come happens the way I am hoping it will.

Anyway, I had another successful day of healthy eating, as well as exercising. I even managed to grab a couple compliments from some co-workers I haven't seen in a while. And you know receiving compliments for hard work, really motivates me to work even harder. I am also happy that I have managed stay on track so far, even though I am away from home.

I wanted tonight's post to also feature some comparison shots. I know I usually feature my side shots at the first of every month but being that I am not home this month, I wanted to save my next side shot post until I get home. I am doing this because I want each of my side shot photos to be in the same elements every time. I think that makes it easier to compare the pictures. However, I still wanted to share a comparison of my front shot photos from today and the very first day of this mission. I hope you enjoy seeing the difference as much as I do. Let me know what you think.
Day #1 - 302 lbs
Day #190 - 222.6 lbs
