That’s right. A Fat FIGHT! I’m going to keep this short. Jesse, from Former Fat Guy, and I have agreed to a weight loss battle. The contest will last 4 weeks. The one with the best stats on October 5th will be victorious. By best stats we mean the best overall change, relative to our [...]

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 [...]

Long Night, No sleep, New Logo

About once a month I experience a weird, non-sleepy, full of energy day. Last night was one of those days. I don’t particularly like it when I stay up all day and all night, but I am at least able to get tons of work done online. Although, now that I think of it, I [...]

Other Peoples Weight Loss Blogs

The other day I was searching the web, notice how I didn’t say “googling,” for blogs that were similar to mine. I came across a large collection of blogs that were very informative and entertaining. Many of the bloggers are similar to me in that they just want a place to speak their mind about [...]

Finding It Hard to Exercise and Eat Healthy

Ever since getting back home from New York I have been finding it extremely hard to exercise and eat better. I told myself that when I got back home it would be back to my normal routine that I followed before heading off on vacation. Well, disappointingly I have not lifted one weight or eaten [...]

Stranded in NYC..Back now.

I was in New York over the last 5 or 6 weeks and it was torture. I was not able to get online, workout, feel good, or anything. I had a horrible time and it affected me in every facet of my life. I went backwards as far as my workouts and diet are concerned, [...]

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 [...]

Weird Day, Wii Day

I feel weird today, not sure what it is really. I managed to eat right and work out. Today was a cardio day and I was on the treadmill for 20 minutes. I fought through the pain though. At around 13 minutes I was feeling like stopping but I kept going. I also felt but [...]

Exhausting and Interesting

Last night I found a site that let me do an informal test of my body fat percentage. It was very interesting, although extremely informal. According to the test: I have 26.5% body fat. I have 89.8 Pounds of fat and 249.2 Pounds of lean (muscle, bone, body water). If those numbers are close to [...]

Double Time

Today was an awesome day. I woke up ready to workout but couldn’t because I spent the majority of the day with my daughter. It was so great because we enjoyed each others company. For breakfast I had some Total Raisin Bran with some 2% low fat milk. It tasted really good and filled me [...]

Day 1 of Forever: Before Pictures

What a day. It started out wrong. Things didn’t feel right. I was dreading waking up today because I knew that I had to begin my lifestyle change. Last night I was craving some Dominoes Pizza. I even ordered it , but it never came. I guess it was fate that didn’t let it come. [...]
