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.


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.


(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).


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.)

Took my phone to the Apple Store because the bottom of the touch screen has been acting up (sometimes can’t type on the keyboard). They ended up replacing it. Good thing I went because my 1-year warranty would have ended in less than a month.

Of course, after I got home and restored it from a backup, the “Other” part of the data on the phone is HUGE, and after trying everything else, I just had to do a factory reset. So I have to reconfigure everything. :/

Weigh-In Wednesday - Week 2 (Again)

A 7.4 lb loss! You have no idea how relieved I am to see the scale moving down once more. And of course, I knew the first week would see the biggest loss, but I was only excepting 4-5 lbs, not over 7 lbs.

I gotta say, even though it’s only been a week, I’m starting to feel a lot better both physically and mentally. It seems that vacation really was exactly what I needed. I’m sure signing up for Weight Watchers again helped too.

Now I just gotta keep at it.


Someone spoiled last night’s GoT episode for my sister.

I had a feeling that was gonna happen, because even this morning I went to Google News and the top headline for the entertainment section spoiled it.

The good news though is she wasn’t completely spoiled… basically she was told that one thing and not the setting or circumstances surrounding that one thing. So that’s good.
