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 #1 - Part 2 Starts Now!

Hello My Friends,

Do not adjust your computer screens, it is I the Heavy Man, back for a second day in a row. For all of you who are new to this blog, I have been on a mission I like to call, "The Mission to Healthy" for a little more then 9 months now. I started on Monday, May 31, 2010 with the full intention of losing weight for my wedding, that will take place this August. But as the mission grew, it became more about helping myself as well as others who struggle with the same weight issues I do. And to make a long story short, I have been on this mission now for 9 and 1/2 months and I have learned a lot. Not to mention, I made a ton of friends that keep me motivated constantly. But unfortunately it has been hard, since the last week of December, to keep up with my posts on a daily basis. I actually went about 250 + days straight without missing a post until that point. If you are curious about the obstacles I have gone through to get to this point, please feel free to visit the blog's archives and check it out.

Anyway, I have been slipping a little lately on the eating side and I think missing my daily posts plays a part with that. When I was blogging everyday, it served as a constant reminder of how far I have come. And I can tell you right now, I will never go back to being over weight ever again. You may have noticed that I have updated the blog site and added a few more pictures of myself, that date back to when all of this started. To bring you up to speed, the pictures I am going to share with you all now, are the most recent. You will be able to see how far I have come by comparing these photos with the ones that are on my site's home page. They will remain there as another reminder of what I will never be again.
Day #1 (Part 2) Mon, March 14, 2011

March 4, 2011 (Side Shot)
 It has definitely been a long but successful journey so far. And I do not plan on stopping any time soon, even when my wedding day has come and gone. So I am going to put the last 9 and 1/2 months in the past and now focus on the future and the new tasks at hand. I am going to officially call it Part 2 of "The Mission to Healthy" and Day #1 starts today. I have a little over 5 months to go until my wedding day is here. And what I pictured myself looking like, will become a reality come hell or high water. The Heavy Man is back people and I am sorry that I have been lazy the last few months. It has not been fair to you or myself. I look forward to taking this next part of my journey with all of you.

Until tomorrow and I mean tomorrow, have a great night!!! Let's get to the details of today:
