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 #203 - And Here We Go

Patty has officially arrived in Charleston, SC!!! And you can only imagine how happy I was to see her standing at the baggage claim door, when I went to go pick her up from the airport. Not only was I excited to see her after 17 days but I was also anxious to see her reaction to how much more weight I have lost since I seen her last. And to my calculations, it has been roughly 11 lbs lost in the last two and a half weeks. Her reaction was exactly what I had hoped it would be. The first thing see said to me was, "you are melting away." She then told me, after a while, that it looks like I have gotten thinner all over. And even later on in the night, she said that she couldn't believe the difference in only 17 days. I guess my determination and the new Weight Watcher's PontsPlus program has been affective so far.

Now I pride myself for being honest with everyone when it comes down to this mission and my weight loss program. And I am going to let everyone know now that I had a heck of a cheat meal tonight for dinner. The reason for this cheat meal was because I missed Patty and my 7 year anniversary being down here. And I know it was rough for the both of us. So I promised that I would take her out to a nice dinner when she got down here. And I kept my promise tonight by taking her to her favorite type of restaurant, Hibachi. The meal was great and I ate every single piece of food that was put on my plate. And of course I felt guilty afterwards and went running for 30 mins outside in the freezing night air. I already know that I am going to be weighing in higher than 215 lbs tomorrow morning. But I realize that this will happen and I will keep on going strong to gain back that ground and then some.

It is great having Patty down here with me. She is the one that keeps me calm and she will also be there for me when I get really stressed out during the next two weeks. Anyway, Monday is quickly approaching and crunch time is about to start. Wish me luck everyone, as I attempt to execute this event the best I possibly can.

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

Day #203 Front Shot


  1. Do not feel guilty about your cheat meal. Be done with it and move on! You are doing FANTASTIC!!


  2. What is really exciting is that you know that, even if you "cheat" for one meal, you can get right back on the wagon and "catch up" to your goal. You now have the tools, and you know how to use them. Keep up the great work.

  3. Glad your wife could be there with you. That cheat meal will probably only effect the scale for about 3 days.. and you deserve it.... You are doing great!
