So I am down 180+ pounds in 17 months. There are days I feel like I take one step forward and two steps back. I finally landed a job and am still single.

There are days that I am just a malcontent and jealous cynic. I am slowly accepting the fa

It was a year ago today that I went under the knife. Not only did this surgery save my life it forever changed me into the exercise crazed maniac I am now. 

I still HATE to walk but I love biking and go for a 4-6 mile ride every day. I have als

I have noticed a pattern recently and since I have had surgery. It is with hot and cold foods. I find foods that were hot but are now cold more flavorful and yummy. Hot foods I find bland no matter how many spices are in them. 

Anyone else have

Hello LGBTQ community,


As a large gay man, it was hard enough trying to find someone. When I did, they did like me for me and who I was even though I was on a bad track and my luck was starting to catch up with me. I will admit it; I like

Hey guys! 

Happy Sunday. 😉

 Today I decided to put on shorts for some odd reason and not my usual gym shorts that are too big  for me anyways but these are just dockers cargo shorts and they are hilariously way too big. Like 4 inches

Hi All,

I have not posted in a while and I figured that it was high time for an update.

I am 7 months out and post-op as of yesterday and nearly 50% down to my goal. I always am second guessing the scale when I get my INR checked and th

I have been trying to post an updated avatar picture and it will not upload. Anyone else having this issue? I guess I am missing something because it is not working.

This past week I have not been eating on plan and just eating things I shouldn't. I have felt like crap and have paid for it all week too. I am done with that, saw the light, and came back to Jesus. Yesterday's grocery run was dedicated to getting back

I have not posted in a while. I am doing well, am down 120lbs which is 30lbs from the half way point, and losing steadily every week. Today has just been a weird day for me. I just started noticing how much smaller I am but earlier had a complete meltd

 I know that walking has contributed to my weight loss.  Is there anyone else out there that absolutely loathes walking?  I guess I don't enjoy it as much as others because my feet and legs hurt so much sometimes.  With the fall season now upon us I th

I have not done laundry for shirts in more than two weeks. I am working my way through my closet to see what fits and does not fit. 

A lot of things are fitting that used to not fit. It's nice to see hard work and perseverance paying off.

Hey All, 

Not quite 10 weeks out and am feeling great and moving lots. Eating real and clean foods and oodles of protein. 

I am seeing the weight just melt off of me and there are some weeks where I lose a little and then the following

Hey Ya'll!

Sorry, I have not been on lately. We have been having some awesome weather here in West Central Ohio and I have been out enjoying it since June was basically a month of monsoon rains.

This is my first blog post and I figure that I need to start keeping a written record of my thoughts, feelings, events, NSVs, and missives on this new journey that I have been thrown into. <
