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 #200 - Still Moving Forward

I believe I have reached two milestones in one day!! Well, first I am going to state the obvious one. It is officially the 200th day of my, "Mission to Healthy!" Can you believe that I started this mission 200 days ago??!! And I have not strayed from path the entire time. It is the longest commitment I have ever made, well beside the 7 years I have been with Patty. But common, 200 days straight! I am extremely happy that I did not give up on myself and I don't plan on ever giving up for the rest of my life. Thank you all for your support over the past 200 days and I can't wait for the next 200 days to start.

The second milestone I hit today, happened when I weighed in this morning. The scale displayed that I was weighing in at 211.8 lbs!! This means I have lost 90.2 lbs since the start of this mission!! Of course it might be a little higher tomorrow because of my weight fluctuation but I was extremely happy to see that number on the scale this morning. As a matter of fact, I have been doing great in the weight loss column since I have arrived down here in Charleston, 2 weeks ago. Since I have gotten down here, I have lost 12 lbs! I think that is great, since I am not at home and I don't have access to a gym right now, because the key doesn't work. I do however, want to check my weight on the gym scale when we get a working key again, just to make sure that my scale is still accurate. I always tend to do this when I have a good weight loss streak going. It is just a habit of mine that I have developed.

Anyway, day #200 went pretty well and I am feeling better every single day with my health. I am pumped and ready to hit the ground running for the next 200 days. Until tomorrow my friends, have a great night!

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

Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man - 49 Points)
(I am currently following the Weight Watcher's PontsPlus program)

Breakfast - 2 slices of american cheese on 2 slices of whole wheat bread = Points 16
Lunch - Piece of roasted chicken with a piece of pork loin and a serving of corn = Points 10

Today I played basketball outside for an 1 1/2. It was a great workout and the weather was awesome. Tomorrow I hope to get back in the gym, if we ever receive our new keys!

  1. How totally awesome for you! Isn't it fun to LOVE the scale instead of hating it? I remember when..... and I WILL get there again.

    Congrats on all your hard work and your incredible commitment.

  2. I kinda love the mirror thing we have going. I can not tell you that to many times that the commitment we have shown is the most amazing thing. The weight comes and goes, setting a course and following it, that is new to me.. Opening day in 155...I have a ticket for another thin guy..

  3. You are way cool He-man, keep it going! You are a true weight loss warrior. Right on man.


  4. Thank you all for your constant support. It really means a lot to me. Especially being away from home for the entire month of December.

    Allan, I couldn't agree with you more. The commitment is the most amazing thing. I will gladly be that other thin guy for opening day!!
