2 months 11 days

So what is it like eating next to nothing unhealthy? Pretty honkin’ cool.

So what has changed? A good bit.

First off, I can see my feet whereas before (at 265 lbs) I had to bend over…I mean bend over to see them. I have gone down one half a neck size in the dress shirts from 18″ to 17 1/2″. I have gone from a 43″ waist to nearly 38″. I have gone down from a snug size 42 pant size to a loosening 38″ pants. I only have one more notch on my belts before I have to buy another black and brown belt. My extra large undershirts that used to be tight are hanging off of me. I have now started to see definition in my arms, gut, and chest again. I am beginning to see my lats and I can see my clavicals again. Why? Well, as of June 20th, I’m down 31+ pounds.

Needless to say I am feeling much better. I don’t think I would make great time on a mile, but I could run a solid lap without passing out.

Becoming a fairly strict vegetarian has been an awesome thing.

So the burning question: Have I messed up?
Sure…especially at the beginning. I would grab something that had a little cheese on it or I would snag a snack that had refined sugar. Oops.

These days it is a lot easier. I’ll still treat myself to the massively occasional fry or tater tot, but nothing that is blatantly anti-veggie.

I like the transforming me. I still have a double chin, but it doesn’t look like anything like it did. I guess I have more of a chin and a half.

Well until the next weigh in…

Results of the meds

So I went Tuesday back to the doc for a check in, giving a vile of blood, and an emotion weigh-in. And the results….I am still depressed but much less than I had been, I still have viens to give blood (so they stuck me) and the vitals…blood pressure is down to nearly normal and the best part…I’m down 16 lbs. That’s right…I’ve lost 16 pounds. Of course this has nothing to do with the meds and everything to do with how Shady and I have changed our eating habits.

So have we changed? What are we doing differently?

Well, I’ll be breif with this.

NO BREAD WITH YEAST (pita is okay)


Oh, also no coffee, no sodas, no fruit juices with sugar…just water, freshly squeezed or juiced juice, and soy milk.

Laugh all ya want, but the proof is in the…well…it’s in the pudge, or lack thereof.
