Tipping the Scales: 2 lbs. Lost this Week

I can’t say I am surprised. Given the slow start I had to last week I was expecting to lose only a pound, but every little bit helps I suppose. This reminds me that I can’t slack off whenever I think that I a have accomplished something. My goal is to be at 299 lbs [...]

Did I Lose Weight from a Hair Cut?

I got a hair cut the other day and I feel a lot lighter and a little tighter. Did I really lose that much weight or is it my mind playing tricks on me? I tried analyzing my other photos but I couldn’t tell whether or not I had lost any significant weight on my [...]

Fat Man Down, Looking forward to Biggest Loser

Hurt My Ankle, No Weight Loss Ahhhh! I didn’t lose any weight. My initial reaction is to freak out, but considering what has transpired over the last week, I am fine with it. Last week I hurt my ankle slightly. I pulled a ligament in my ankle and had to sit out a few days. [...]

HIIT Training Hits Me Hard

In my ongoing quest to lose weight and get back into shape I keep coming across many individuals that are proponents of HIIT Training. It is my understanding that HIIT is an acronym for High Intensity Interval Training. I have done some minimal research on it and most resources state the same: Perform short bursts [...]

Showers are a Workout Too

Maybe it’s because I am over 300 lbs or maybe it’s because my shower is tiny, but showering is like working out. I tested this by showering yesterday immediately after I worked out and showering today an hour after I worked out. The differences were staggering. When I showered immediately (within 15 minutes) after working [...]

Working Out with My Family

Over the last week or so I decided to institute a “Family Workout” routine. It basically consists of the entire family (me, my wife, and our 2 year old daughter) going to the park or going out for walks. Something, anything. My wife has been on me for months about going for walks, so this [...]

Tipping the Scales: 4 lbs. Lost this Week

It may not seem like a lot, but 4 pounds lost is pretty significant to me. Especially considering that it was lost during a 6 day period. I don’t really expect to lose too much weight too fast. Maybe about 10 to 15 lbs per month for the next few months. I think that is [...]

Sweaty, Sore, Hungry and a Bet

Let me start off by telling you about my bet. I was helping my bud pack up stuff for a move when he jokingly offered me his large size Dallas Cowboys jersey. I told him it wouldn’t fit me and he agreed. I then told him to give me a few months before it would [...]

Drink More Agua

I seriously mean it. Drink MORE water. It helps clean your system out. I tend to drink at least a gallon of water a day. Maybe more, I get really thirsty after intense workouts. I also get extremely hungry after an intense workout, but I will cover that some other time. If you look close [...]

Replace, Remove, Repeat

I was having a “comment conversation” with Jesse from Former Fat Guy and as we were discussing a post of mine I blurted the phrase “replace, remove, repeat.” It was in reference to starting out slow and then gradually, over time getting acclimated with the new changes you have made in your life. Many people [...]

Mr. Bundles Stretches when he Runs

That’s what some people call me. LOL. I think it’s a cool name. It comes from a Rocawear brand t-shirt that I purchased while on vacation in New York. It’s one of my favorite. That’s a pic of my Mr. Bundles shirt (It’s from when I had a beard). I was also in a bit [...]

Next Level? What about my Knees?

I think it’s time to start pushing it to the next level. At least I think it is. Isn’t it? Each workout feels easier each day I do it. I think I want to start incorporating some different exercises into my routines. Yeah, I think that’s what’s best. I think I will run longer on [...]

Interesting Conversation with my Cousin

I had a very interesting conversation with my cousin the other day. It centered around his wanting to get back into shape. He hadn’t been over my house for a few months and realized how I was living a healthier life: green tea and soy milk in the fridge, tuna in the cupboard, salads and [...]

Late Workout Today

I woke up today with the desire to workout. But I didn’t right away. Instead I went over to a friends house and helped him move a 250 pound big screen television from his upstairs game room to his downstairs living room. After a few minute and a lot of sweat, we did it. Oh, [...]

Controlling My Calorie Intake

The last couple of days have been pretty satisfying. I have managed to mentally suppress my appetite. As soon as I get up I make a protein shake and eat a bowl of raisin bran cereal with soy milk. Then I eat a yogurt, fruit and or a half a can of tuna for lunch. [...]

Day 1 All Over Again, 345 lbs with Videos

Yep, that’s right. I was on the right track for about a month, doing my workouts and eating the way I needed to eat. I was even mentally “there.” But that’s behind me now because today was the day I started all over again. I weighed myself today and was at 345 lbs. I told [...]

Steady Progress

It has been a while since I posted. Since my last post I have been hitting the weights and cardio on a consistent basis. Except for a couple of days last week when some “things” happened that required my undivided attention. But besides that I have been on a role. I have already made this [...]
