Weight loss is no easy thing. It is filled with it's ups and down, bad diets and miserable failures. But at some point in our lives we need to get real and man up!
Here I go again. It is 10/3/2013 and I am committed, again to losing the pounds. This time however I have a plan.
First, I realized I could not do it alone. I have sought out help in the form of counseling by a nutritionist and therapist at a Diabetes clinic. My bloodwork was so bad that I qualify for the program through insurance and if you are reading this blog, you might as well. Hell, most of you are probably gamers who eat the same crap I do and look the same as me, so it is likely you have the same issues!
But in addition to that, I have joined a gym. I started up a membership at a gym in my town, and paid upfront for four physical training sessions. Yes it is costly, but I have spent a LOT of money on toys and models. You would probably not think twice about spending 150 bucks on a couple of GW box sets. Why not spend that on your health? I bet at most gyms you can get a package deal price on training sessions if you negotiate.
Finally, I invested in some proper gym clothing and shoes. Yes it makes a difference if we feel good about what we are wearing, especially the shoes. :)
So my check in weight at my first training session on September 21 was 291 pounds. At the second session on September 28 on I as at 288. Looks good so far!
I will try to keep a running record here.
Oh and I am planning on doing a Zombie 5k in the spring. Wish me luck!
