    2020 - Mike's Weight Loss Journal


    Journal Entry
    Thursday, January 2nd, 2020


    Hi All.

    I have been around these forums for a long time (even before this username) and well maybe this will finally be the time I get it right.
    I hit my highest weight in July of 2019, a whopping 385 lbs.
    It was a mental issue being that heavy as my scale doesn't read above 350 (385 was from the doctors) and I just couldn't shake it off.
    I dipped a few times just below 350 throughout the rest of 2019 but I just didn't commit enough.
    Sometime in November 2019 I had started just eating a bit better and focusing on just eating less of things.
    This led to me using my scale and being stunned to see 343.8 lbs.
    I said to myself, F it I'm gonna keep going and see what happens.
    I have successfully made it through the holidays and as of today I weigh 333 lbs.
    I have lost 52 lbs since July and I honestly wasn't trying too hard I just stuck with it.

    So to start 2020 I'm going to keep doing more of the same.
    Eating less and making better choices overall.
    I won't always weigh and prep my food super accurate for now.
    However, I will definitely be mindful of what I eat, the portions I eat and the macros I eat.

    My goal for this journal is to just record something at least weekly to go over what has happened since my last entry and give a weight update.
    Nothing overly complicated because when I do that I feel less inclined to do it.
    As a short term weight goal I want to get below 300 lbs for the end of February.
    My family will be going on a vacation and the last time I got below 300 (think like 3/4 years ago) the plane ride was much more comfortable.

    Thanks for reading!

    HI All.
    I have been a bit busy so didn't have time to post last week.
    Just wanted to get some update out there, so here we go.
    The past week wasn't the best but I stayed steady as far as my weight goes.
    It just means I'll take longer to get to my initial goal of under 300 than I planned.
    So far this week has been better and hopefully I have a lot more to show for it for my next weight check.
