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 #254, #255, & #256 - Riding the Weight Roller Coaster, Once Again

This past week has been both busy and very long. I find myself looking at the clock more than usual because I can't wait to get out of work and into the gym. Also, it doesn't help when it is my birthday this Saturday and it just so happens to land on a weekend this year. Usually my friends and I hang out on my birthday and then I meet up with my mom and grandma the day after for a birthday meal. I am going to try my best to control my junk food cravings this weekend, especially after my Super Bowl break down last Sunday.

This week has been a roller coaster when it comes to my weight. I started off under 200 lbs last weekend before the Super Bowl. Then I was over 200 lbs after the Super Bowl. And now I am under 200 lbs once again at the end of this week. It is very interesting actually how much the human body can fluctuate during the course of a normal week. I am just happy that I stuck to my healthy eating routine this entire week while working out just about everyday.

Today is a very busy day at work. But I will make sure to take time, later tonight and this weekend, to let you all know how I did with food, during my weekend long birthday celebration. But until then, I am going to leave you with my update photos from the last few days. Have a great Friday my friends!!

  1. Definitely a teeter-totter act there with the 200# mark. It wont be long I am certain; your willingness for success has proven that if you want that number to be less and stay there then it certainly will.

  2. I miss reading your blog everyday......what's up?

  3. Anonymous,

    I am sorry about the delay between posts. Work has been crazy and it took me a little longer then I thought it would to recover from my birthday this past weekend. I will be back to blogging every day again tomorrow. I promise!! Thank you for your support!
