Life Sucks When You Are Fat
Maybe we’re a little bit alike? I’ve been fat since childhood. You?
I lost a bunch of weight in high school because of the sports I played … I kept it off in college mostly because I couldn’t afford to eat very much … well, that and I rode my bike everywhere for lack of a car.
But once I got a car, got a job, moved into the real world I have steadily gained weight. I’ve had some periods of nice weight loss but it always comes back … and more.
I was 152# in high school.
I was a strong 185# (with very little fat) in college.
Now I’m 34 and 310 pounds … I’m somewhere near 45% body fat.
I hate life this way. I affects everything I do. I effects how I feel about myself, what I want to do, what I avoid, how I get along each day.
I’m tired of this and am going to see if going public with my campaign will help me stick to it.
There are five things I (believe) I need to overcome to lose the weight – each of these will be frequent topics of this BLOG:
1) Eat healthy foods
2) Find a system that works for me
3) Develop/Find my old will power
4) Become more structured
5) Develop a support (or guilt) system
My goal is to get under 200 pounds … that’s over 100 pounds lost eventually. I hope to use this BLOG as my journal and as a public face that keeps me accountable. It would be incredible if others are able to contribute and gain from this effort I’m undertaking.
