9/24 Weightloss Wednesday: Sooo Close to 30 lbs Gone!

Weightloss Wednesday

It’s Weightloss Wednesday!  I was sooooo close to 30 lbs but a trip to Octoberfest was my undoing.  Apparently German cuisine is not conducive to fat loss…or it could have been the huge beer I bought of the decorative stein.

I mentioned Bountiful Baskets in the video so if you are interested in a co-op, take a look here.  Please remember to follow me on YouTube to never miss a video and please like this video.  I’m told that is important. Smile

You can see the Chicken Parmesan recipe I mentioned here and all my no sugar added recipes here.

Thanks for watching!

9/17 Weightloss Wednesday: 27 Lbs Down!

It’s Weightloss Wednesday!  Subscribe to my YouTube to never miss an episode.

So happy to see the weight continue to come off, albeit slower than I would like.  I’m down to 293 lbs and have seen noticeable improvements in my energy and endurance.  In fact I can ride a bike for about 5 miles and swim for about 1/2 a mile every day and don’t feel like it is just wearing me totally out.

This past week has been a little up and down because we were moving and had to eat some fast food because I didn’t have access to a stove.  The good news is that it absolutely opened my eyes to how quickly just a few bad meals can pack on the pounds.  Yuck!

I’m still struggling to quit Coke Zero but I’ve been drinking less.  This will definitely happen and soon.

I have set a new fitness goal!  I have never in my life been able to do a pull-up and I would like to be able to do it.  My gym has a machine that allows me to take a little of my own body weight off and do pull-ups so I will be using that 2-3 times a week and trying to use less and less weight until I can do a pull-up unaided.

I wrote a post this week about the importance of the right attitude in weight loss.  If you are struggling to lose or to cut sugar out of your diet, please read it.

Overall, it’s been a good week and I’ve seen good progress toward my goals.  Can’t wait to see what the new week brings.  How has it been going for you?  I would love if you left a comment and just le me know where you are in your process and what gains you’ve seen.  Thanks for reading!

8/27 Weightloss Wednesday: 26 Lbs Down!

Weightloss Wednesday

It’s Weightloss Wednesday time again and I’m happy to report that I am down 26 lbs!  I can’t even tell you how encouraging it is to see that needle on the scale move everyday.  In fact it’s gotten to the point where I can’t wait to hop on the scale and see what happened overnight.  Please remember to follow me on YouTube to never miss a video and please like this video.  Thanks!

Last week I forgot to link to the people who have helped me in this journey.  Please check these links out.

Vinnie Tortorich – His podcast has really been instrumental in “getting my head right” about what to eat and what not to eat and how to think about my diet.  He also has a pretty awesome book that is one of the more entertaining reads I’ve encountered on this little journey.

Dr Robert Lustig –  Bare minimum, if you are interested at all in cutting sugar out of your life, you need to watch his video.  It was life changing.  His book “Fat Chance” is what I’m reading right now (the one I mentioned in the video) and it is FULL of info you need to know.

My Wife – Always encouraging and my biggest fan.  Not only could I not do this without here, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t want to.

8/20 Weightloss Wednesday: I’m 20 Lbs Down!

Weightloss Wednesday

It’s been a while since I’ve made one of these Weightloss Wednesday Videos because I haven’t really been losing any weight.  I finally came to grips with the fact that my snacking and dessert-eating was sabotaging my weight-loss efforts and once I stopped snacking, the weight started coming back off.

I can’t even tell you how exciting it is to see this progress and to FINALLY be under 290 lbs.  I special shout out to my lovely wife and Vinnie Tortorich for putting their finger on what my problem was and helping me break through.

6/4 Weightloss Wednesday: 15 lbs Down!

The weight is continuing to slowly come off and I couldn’t be happier!  I’m down 15 lbs and feel fantastic.  More importantly, my blood pressure is WAAAAAYYYY down, still a little on the high side but at least my doctors don’t threaten to admit me as soon as they check it anymore.  So things are going great and I couldn’t be happier about this new direction in my life.  Please follow me on YouTube to never miss a video.  Thanks!
