I thought it was time I changed my about me. It’s almost been a year on this blog.
I started 211 lbs, Mid March, 2012.
I am a 26 year old cook, who used to do a lot of sit down/admin type. I’ve also worked in call centers, which is also sitting all day.
When I hit my biggest weight of 211 lbs, it was at a transition point of my life. I was unhappy on many levels. I left my desk job and went back to working for a catering company I had worked for years ago. I knew I had to lose the weight, so I finally decided to make the change.
I track my daily calories with MyFitnessPal on my phone, take progress photos, and measurements to compare over time. You can check my progress page for my most recently updated numbers.
With work, I’m now on my feet for 8 hours a day, and carefully watch what I eat while I’m there. I walk a minimum 2 miles a day, just as my daily commute, and usually include other walking while running errands or for exercise.
Previously I was working out at the gym 3-4 times a week, but currently I’m just doing low level cardio like walking, watching my diet, and doing the occasional body weight exercise.
I believe in common sense and realistic ideals. I do not restrict what I eat, but I try to make good choices throughout the day. If I want a donut, I have one.
I hope you enjoy reading my journey, and I really appreciate the comments/suggestions and compliments.
