August 1st, 469 Pounds


July was a rough month.  Really rough.  But, I’m now on the other end of that month and I’ve lost another five pounds.  I’ve also lost about an inch and a half of waistline.  I was 66 inch at my most rotund part of my belly.  Now I’m at 64.5.    My goal is to get below 400 by the end of the year.  That’s going to be tough.  The closest I’ve ever gotten down in the past 15 years is 413 pounds, and I was younger then too.  But my overall plan is to be active every day except Sunday.

It kinda hits you hard when you finally realize that you’ve literally been carrying a whole other person on your back for over a decade…  Lately I’ve been like the comic book guy from the Simpsons.


64 inch Face

I saw a guy recently who is actually taller and bigger than me called  “Possible Pat.”

He’s six foot eight and weighed 605, which is about 100 pound more than me.  He lost 300 pounds and aside from a little loose skin, is totally fit.

He’s the first guy I’ve ever seen that is as big as I am (actually bigger) who has lost weight.  Right now I’m around 475, and my waist is 64.5 at the biggest part of my belly and my thighs are 41 inches in diameter.

I guess non-fat people wonder “How could a person get so fat!!??!!”  Well, it creeps up on you, and then the fat itself becomes a force multiplier to bring on more  fat.  Oh, you’re upset that you’re fat, well eat up, that’ll fix it!

My ultimate goal is to get below 400 by the end of the year.  Tough, but possible.  And also, for the first time in my life, I’m going to build muscles!  Chicks dig muscles! 🙂

Down to 475.4



It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and there’s been a lot of ups and downs in my life.  Things are starting to swing up! 🙂

I’ve started to work out lightly at a local gym with my best friend, and he needs to get back in shape too.  We are taking it easy, and are just looking to build light muscle.

I haven’t lost a heckuva  lot of weight since April 1st, but it is going down.  I really started at 515 back in March, and got down to 495 on April 1st.  So, twenty pounds in three months ain’t bad.  My goal is to get down to 439 pounds by the end of the summer, and then 399 pounds by November.

Banned by Hellmann’s!


Last week I reviewed the new “organic” Hellmann’s mayo on the Hellmann’s website.  Very rarely does a product today so disappoint that I resort to writing a review, but this “organic” mayo was just plain awful.

Apparently the review was published, but moderators removed it.

Below is their email to me:

Tastes like Sysco bulk mayo
I’ve been eating Hellman’s mayonnaise my entire life in this new organic Mayo does not taste like Hellmann’s or most other mayonnaise. It has a bad aftertaste as well, and I don’t see why using organic ingredients would make it taste worse but it does.

You can ban my comment, Hellmann’s, but it still doesn’t change the issue that your fancy new organic mayo tastes like gas station packets of mayo!  How about getting rid of the soybean oil first before worrying about organic.

Food Log 5-4 to 5-8-2016

Busy this weekend.  I’ve been eating 2,000 calories a day, or less.   Saturday I didn’t eat anything till 6:30 P.M. so I was a tad hungry, so dad and I ate at the Chinese buffet, tres plates, but I didn’t eat anything else that day.
