Time To Answer Questions.

There have been a lot of questions from all you readers about my weight loss so i figured i would take a post to answer all of you. Being that im guessing most everyone has tried to diet you know how hard it is. The fact is DIETS DONT WORK. If you want to lose weight you must first realize that the reason youve gained weight is from a bad lifestyle. There for you dont need to diet, you need to change your lifestyle. The reason my "diet" works is because i changed my lifestyle. I used to eat just for the fun of eating. i would take in an average of 3000 to 4000 calories a day. if i was bored, i ate. if i was sad, i ate. I have no replaced eating with other things. If im bored, i play my guitar, or go see a movie. I even exercise now instead of sitting around on my ass. lol. and Believe me, if you think diets are hard, lifestyle changes are even harder. The fact is anytime you lose weight in a weeks time period, you want to reward yourself, the problem with rewards is however, one reward turns into two, and two to four and so on. until you now trying to work off your reward. The hardest part about my weight loss, is not giving up. There has been so many times where i just want to stop, Chipotle always sounds good. lol But i know how happy i am with my body, and how unhappy i was when i was that 258 pound animal that i dont even know anymore. I cant even explain to you how great of a feeling it is to get onto that scale every week and see a -2 or a -4 pounds. its single handedly the greatest feeling ever. Now i look forward to seeing that scale when a year ago you couldnt have paid me to get on it. I cant tell you the feeling of watching your pants size go down. or watching your shirt sizes going down. i started off wearing XL shirts and size 40 pants. im now a M shirt and a 34 pant and shrinking.

so, in order to try and help all of you i decided to let you in on my secret. If you have an iPhone of iPod Touch, get it out cause you will want to get this app. its called lose it. it tracks your calorie intake and also keeps a chart of your weight loss. its a free app, but remember, using the app is only half the battle. you still need to follow your calorie allowance, and remember to work out. even if its only for 30 minutes a day. just do it. you will thank me later.

Cause I Love to Copy My Mother.

For all you readers of my mothers blog you know she did a weight update with pictures, which i am rather proud of her for doing. so i figured i would do that same. just to show you the progress we are both making.

This is me at my heaviest. This was from last summer when i was weighing in at a handsome 258 Pounds. Holy shit. lol

Its a horrible picture but you can truly see just how big i was.

Well almost exactly a year later this is me.

Almost 60 Pounds lighter and weighing in at an amazing 198 pounds!

I hadnt really seen the change that other people saw in me until i started looking through old facebook photos of me. The change is amazing. Not only did i lose a lot of weight. But i gained a better taste in clothes. lol

Im hoping to shave off another 25 pounds to be exactly where i want to be. FIngers crossed.
