Weekly Weigh-In: 302.4 Lbs.

Weekly Weigh InI finally weighed myself after a few months of not weighing in and the result was a measly 302.4 lbs. Yuck. I was seriously aiming for the 290s at the very least. Not much I can do but keep on keeping on, right? I’ll be under 300 next week!!! I guarantee it!

This is what happens when you slack off for a while then kick but for 2 months. I suppose I put on weight when I was slacking off and just ended up losing that weight that I put back on. Which sucks because it has kept me at a constant yo-yo for 302 lbs to 320+ lbs.

I came up with a solution. I will be working my ass off, literally, for 4 to 6 weeks at a time and then chillax (chill and relax) for a day or two then get back on my 6 week ass kicking routine. So I should be able to drop significant weight, gain good strength/stamina and still be able to have a break every few weeks.

I think I can keep myself sane that way. Don’t get me wrong, I feel better than I have felt in a long time. I feel strong, and I think I need a new wardrobe because my clothes are starting to look Kris Kross baggy on me (cuz inside out is a miggity, miggity, miggity wack!). I’ve been getting the “you look skinnier” thing from all types of family, friends, and peeps online so what I am doing is working. Now I just need to stay consistent.


Over the last 2 months I’ve significantly increased the amount of fruit and vegetables that I eat. Almost to the point where lunch will consist of several fruits and water. Something I have noticed since actively increasing my fruit/veggie intake is that I am not as tired. I have some intense workouts and I can get through them now where before I would nearly pass out.

My eating is the least of my worries since I have that on lock. I eat fish, chicken, meats, bread, fruits, vegetables and drink a gallon or more of water a day. I’m actually sipping some green tea and munching on a plum as I write this. I also take a multivitamin and whey protein after workouts.

My workouts are varied. I make sure to lift weights, run, bike, walk (which is seriously underrated!) and perform bodyweight routines. I’ve taken a liking to bodyweight workouts. One of my fears is not being able to lift myself as I hang from a rooftop. That’s why I started working on chins ups and pull ups. Thanks to Iron Woody Fitness, I have some bands that will assist me with my chins up until I can start lifting my own weight again.

For me it’s all about real world strength and stamina. You should be able to carry a person out of a burning building, sprint to track down a mugger who stole your wife’s purse, and walk 100 miles to safety if you’re stranded in the desert.

Oh, and I’m back to my weekly weigh-ins. Every Monday homies!

    Well you can only move forward and it sounds like a solid plan…but did you have to mention bread!?! It’s my weakness.

    • I love to eat bread with peanut butter and a banana, all made like a hotdog. It’s so good!!!

        that dog on bread is a wheat product that your body likes to crave. it makes you crave sugar. it also creates the spread around your thighs and love handles. be careful- note to self πŸ™‚
