My name is John. On January 23, 2012 I decided to change my life by losing weight and living a healthier life. Since then I've lost over 75 lbs, discovered the joy of running, and changed how I see and eat food.

 

First off, SPOILERS in video for those not caught up on show.

This is AMAZING. I couldn’t stop laughing. And the other videos by this group are equally awesome.

The last runner at Boston

Just saw this on reddit. A great little story about some volunteers waiting at the finish line for the last runner (well, as the people commenting added, wasn’t THE last runner but the last one before the volunteers were forced out).

ACL Fest 2014 Lineup!
I’m not too excited at the moment about the headliners, but as with previous years I’ll be listening to them a bit and I’m sure as we get closer to October I’ll get more excited. I’m actually REALLY surprised about the headliners, this is a pretty big departure from past years. And the “old guy” act is Pearl Jam I guess?
BUT…
- Foster the People- Spoon- Broken Bells- Fitz & the Tantrums-  Capital Cities
Ohhhh yes. Although I am a bit disappointed that Lorde is only doing the second weekend.
Also, I was hoping to see Bastille on the lineup. :/ They’re actually playing here Friday night, but the tickets have been sold out for months. So there goes my chance of seeing them anytime soon.

They were in my locker.

Not sure why I put them in there… But phew!

And now I can’t find my work keys. Aka the keys that open every door/lock in the store.

WHY.

(I think I may have left them at work, because every day when I leave I put my name badge and boxcutter in my locker at work, and I have my name badge so maybe I for some reason put my keys in the locker instead? I’m hoping it’s that).

Great.

The only fucking shirts that fit me are my work shirts so now I get to go to Easter brunch with my family looking and feeling liked a stuffed sausage as my regular dress shirts are too small now.

What a great way to start the day.

While going through and restoring everything onto my phone, I was looking through my photos and came across my weight loss progress photos. I haven’t looked at them in a while and haven’t kept up with them (last one is from July)… but damn, I can’t believe how thin I was! The great thing is though… I’m not saying that because I’m sad that I’ve gained a bunch of weight back, but because I REALLY want to get back to that weight. I mean, I don’t look fantastic or anything, but I look a whole lot better than I do now (and that was just a few months after my heart surgery).

So yeah, that extra motivation is just what I needed.

(And no, I’m not going to post them, at least not anytime soon, because I’m only in my underwear, and I’m sure none of you want to see that.)
