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 #21 - "The Heavy Man's Diary"... Take 2

This is "The Heavy Man's Diary"..... Take 2. Well technically it is "take 3" but in the grand scheme of things it is all one big crazy never ending drama anyway! If that makes sense?!?!

As many of you know, after reading my post yesterday, I was extremely stressed out and I felt like the light at the end of the tunnel was getting farther away each day. At one point I felt like giving up and eating my stress away. I realize that I am not the only person in the world that is going through a battle with weight issues. But on days like yesterday, I feel like I am trying to climb this gigantic mountain all by myself. However, thanks to a lot of support and words of wisdom from many of you, I am back & ready to push forward!

So with this being said..... I am officially declaring tomorrow "The Heavy Man's Diary" Take 2 - 3ish..... lol. Seriously, it was suggested to me after last night's post, that I should take a step back and take a deep breath. Over the past few weeks I have let the pressures of life get to me and started my "Heavy Man" come back in a crappy way. But tomorrow I intend on doing this thing right! And when I say this thing.... I mean "The Mission to Healthy."

Once upon a time, I managed to push myself just enough to loose over 100lbs. And I did this by eating healthy and exercising just about everyday. Somewhere a long the way, I lost that "push" and now it is time for it to come back even bigger and better!

So tomorrow........ I step up on that scale........... I take my front shot photo....... I take my side shot photo........ I eat healthy once again....... And I get my ass back in the gym! Because the way my health is now, is not acceptable anymore! It is time to pick myself back up for good!

Good night my friends! Tomorrow starts a new day!

  1. We can only learn from our past and go forward better prepared to be successful. It can be challenging when we can only see the final finish line and get demoralized but permanent success means a change of lifestyle and that can happen today and continue one day at a time until we get there. Today is the only one that matters in weight loss. Take care. I am your newest follower.

  2. Good man...well done! 'If you're going to eat an elephant, you can't do it in one bite'.....a saying I love. You can't do everything all at steps my friend xx
