Three Years of Going Nowhere

November 7, 2010
Three Years

I’m on the road sitting in a hotel room, reflecting on where I am at with my weight loss journey. The sad truth is that I am about where I am at where I started, if not a little worse, more than three years ago. True, that wasn’t truly the start of my journey but [...]


Good Start to the Week

November 9, 2009
Thumbnail image for Good Start to the Week

After getting up the gumption to post my update yesterday I knew today was going to be an important day. Could I stick with the plan and remember that I am supposed to be on a diet? Or was I going to fall right back into the bad habits that have caused my weight to [...]


Ready to Start Again

September 21, 2009

As is no doubt obvious by my lack of posts and my weight loss chart that continues to go up instead of down, I’ve been in a weight loss rut. Nay, a virtual crater. The Grand Canyon you could say. I’ve realized this months ago and have struggled with finding the motivation needed to get [...]


How a Fat Guy Shops at Macy’s

August 23, 2009

I received a $200 gift card for Macy’s that I’ve been holding on to for a couple of months until last night, when I finally spent a little time shopping for myself. There were a lot of half-off deals on clothing so my plan was to stock up on some new outfits. While I have [...]


Knocking Out Some Cardio

November 11, 2008

I did something today that I am pretty proud of. It isn’t on the scale of the two mile run I did back in January, but considering where I have been lately in terms of exercising, it was pretty good. I’m back on the couch to 5k training program, starting back at week 4. Last [...]


Proud To Be an American

November 6, 2008

I’ve managed to stay away from politics on this site that is supposed to be a weight loss blog, but given the events of this week I just can’t ignore this post from Mark Cuban, who echoes my own sentiment (except that I voted all Democratic this year, something I haven’t done in a long [...]


I am NOT a Stress Eater

November 3, 2008

I am NOT a stress eater. I am NOT a stress eater. I am NOT a stress eater. It’s important for me to reiterate that positive thought because frankly, I am a stress eater but I’ve got to stop it. I got some bad news today that has caused me stress and my initial reaction [...]


A Weight Loss Blog About Nothing

October 8, 2008

Seinfeld was famous for being “The show about nothing” and it’s time for this weight loss blog to take the same approach. Now I know what you are thinking, and it’s “But John, you haven’t been posting at all - this already is a weight loss blog about nothing!” and frankly you wouldn’t be far [...]


In Which I Tell My Wife About My Weight Loss Blog

July 22, 2008

Amy, Do you remember back in January when we were talking about the weight I had lost and you asked me what was making the biggest difference in my success? What I told you was, to put it simply, eating less and exercising more. But there was something I didn’t tell you. Since August of [...]
