performance: losing 4.4 lb a week
I have been overweight since I was 11 years old. Well that went on for 29 years and this is the year that I lose some of that much gained weight. At my heaviest I was 407 lbs. Since March I have lost 76 lbs. It's time to make a recording of my journey. Well I don't ever plan to be 250 but 260 would be great. That would be 147 lbs lost.
Why did I eat? Well there were many reasons. Depression, anxiety, comfort well that needs to all change. I'm 40 years old now and I hear you plateau when you are losing weight. That hasn't happened to me yet so I'll continue to do what I am doing as it seems to be working.
I don't want to discourage anyone but I have tried a lot of fad diets. I did lose a lot of weight on Atkins. Like 50 lbs or so but then my breath smelled like meat and I felt awkward ordering a hamburger and throwing away the bun or asking the wait person to not bring a bun. I guess Atkins was not the way I wanted to spend my life eating. I like carbs.
So my journal will be my record of my weight loss. Be it good or bad I will post it. I also write my thoughts in it at the time. Who knows you may get inspired or you may think this guy is full of sh*t.
I want to lose a total of 150 lbs. I don't want a timeline for it but I do want to get under 300 by the end of the year (the current year is 2011).
