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."

The Return of "The Heavy Man"

Hello Everyone!!!!

You do not have to adjust your computer screens....... The Heavy Man has returned!!

I would first like to take a moment to apologize to everyone that I abandoned over two years ago. For all the people out there that remember me and my blog, I am extremely sorry! I know I let a bunch of you down. I only hope that I can work my way back into your hearts and gain each & every one's trust once again!

For all of you who do not remember or know who I am, please call me "The Heavy Man." It has been roughly two years & three months since my last post and a lot has happened since then. But first I would like to share a little back ground about myself.....

On May 31 , 2010.... I introduced the world to "The Heavy Man." On that very memorable day, I officially weighed in at 302 lbs and I was a very miserable person.

A few days before that day (May 31), I had gotten into an argument with my mother over my weight and health. Later on that night, after the argument, she called me up in tears telling me, "I do not want you to die." Hearing those words coming out of your mother's mouth are very life altering. So from that point on, I was on a mission to fix my health and to get into the best shape of my life for my wedding (Friday, August 26, 2011). I called this mission, "The Mission to Healthy." (If you would like to read the story in more detail, please feel free to go to the archive section of my blog and look up my very first post).

Now fast forward a little in time.... Everything was going extremely well with the "Mission to Healthy" and I even managed to get my weight down to 190lbs!!! But then stress started kicking in, traveling for work was taking a toll on my body, and the mission started going into a downwards spiral. I began not keeping up with my posts and before I knew it, my wedding day was here and my weight was back up to around 250lbs! Now don't get me wrong, the wedding was a huge success and I married the love of my life!

However, my health was declining again and it was getting extremely hard to get back on track. And to make things even worse, my weight sky rocketed back up to 280lbs! I felt like there was nothing that I could do to get back on track. Until, I received some of the best news of my life! My wife was pregnant and I was going to be a father!!!!!! Now let me tell you..... I was not struggling anymore to find that motivation!!

Things were starting to look up again, as far as the "Mission to Healthy" goes. I was loosing weight once again and my health was taking a turn for the better!! I even managed to get back down to around 250lbs the day my son was born!! And believe me, it was the happiest day of my life!!

My Beautiful Son.... Connor Lee Dombrowski
Unfortunately, like so many times in the past, stress and the demand of traveling all the time started taking a toll on my body once again. And now I am back in the same boat. Trying to figure out a way of loosing the weight and getting back to the good health that this body had a long time ago. But this time around, it is not for me but for my beautiful wife & my amazing son.
My Wife Patty & My Son Connor
I need to be around to watch over and take care of them both. This is so much bigger than me now and that is why I am back my friends!! Yes I said it again..... The Heavy Man is back!! And I am bringing back the "Mission to Healthy" with me!

So as for my current state of health, I am back up to around 270lbs and I can feel my self gaining fat every single day. My plan is to pickup with the blogging on a daily basis (to the best of my ability) as well as exercising and eating healthy once again! I am hoping that this time around it will be a little easier getting back into the swing of things.

Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I apologize to everyone who was reading my blog a long time ago. You all did not deserve me stopping like I did and I am extremely sorry for that. I hope to make it up to everyone, as well as gaining some more friends along the way. The "Mission to Healthy" has officially started once again and I hope everyone can join me!

Until tomorrow... I hope everyone has a great night!

  2. Welcome back.

    Congratulations on your marriage and the birth of your son.

    Although I've lost 120lb and I'm cycling, swimming and running every week, my weight is creeping back on. I know that it's down to me starting to eat a few things I shouldn't but I think my body is starting to get used to the level of exercise I'm at.

    Over the last six months I've gained 14lb. Not much but I shouldn't have gained it at all.

    I'm ready to join you and get back down.

  5. Welcome Back!
    Indeed this is a mission for a lifetime. Bear no shame in the fact you regained weight. Recognize once again the harm your weight puts you in and recognize that you have it within you to weigh whatever healthy weight you want to. Yes, you must recognize to you have to work for it if you want it. That's the hardest part honestly, addressing your attitude and establishing an attitude to achieve what you want.

    So I ask, how is your attitude?

  6. I'm so glad you're back!! That was a busy 2 years. Very productive. You made a person! Congratulations on all the blessings in your life.
    You can do this.
    You look great actually.
    My daughter is 5 now and I feel especially determined to attend to my health to that I can be here for her as long as possible. I had her late (at 42), so I have to really be fit and strong and stay well for as long as I can.
    Your wife and son are beautiful.
    We can figure this out and just do what we know to do. It seems like it should be so simple, doesn't it?
    Good luck!!
