Well, here I am in BEAUTIFUL St. Petersberg! We are staying at a really nice resort this weekend, and we have done nothing but relaxed! Walking on the beach, picking up seashells, and watching the waves has consumed our last two days! People always want to know what I eat! When you lose over 200 pounds, it is like something of a phenomenon. People ask me: ” What do you eat on a daily basis?” ” What did you eat on (Fill in your holiday here)?” ” Do you eat pasta?” My favorite question is “What do you eat when you go out!” Well, here is goes! Being in St. Petersberg, most restaurants are very expensive and trendy! There are no Chili’s or Outback, and I really can not look up the nutritional information on the computer. So what I do is……. Eat the exact same thing that I always […]

So today I had some work done to my car. i was irritated, but not a big deal at all! I drove my wife’s car to work today, which is similar to mine.I realized that when you are used to something, it is weird not to have it.My car has satellite radio in it, and my wife’s does not. So down the road, I am wanting to listen to some Hot Jamz, Howard Stern, or Sirius hits 1, but instead I was listening to this thing called FM Radio. I also realized how annoying commercials are.I finally turned the station and I heard one of my favorite songs, which is “Heaven” by Los Lonely Boys. Sometimes a smell or quote or a song can trigger a memory. This song brings a story to mind. About three years ago, my kitchen was running rough. I was understaffed, and busy so everyone […]

Before I start, I want to thank all of you who pimped your blog! I added every one into my blogroll. Let me know if you want to be added on! Anyway, back to the post! Pack your bags!We are going out of town this weekend! I realized that old pictures of me are rare, and I do not have an old picture of myself where I smiled. Here I am with a stained fleece at Disney World! All I remember was my back was hurting, and I was tired. My wife is smiling yet I could not smile! Why not! I was with the woman I love!Then I remembered that being over 400 pounds does not bring so much happiness! This weekend my wife and I are celebrating our five year anniversary! We have been together for over eight years, but this weekend marks our five years of holy […]

You know, I have changed the way I live. So many people are doing the same in 2009, which is great! Here is the only problem with that… So many people do not know how to live a healthier life! It is true. Living a healthy life can be tough at first. What to eat, when to work out, if you should work out, etc. I get emails from people who ask me how to get started, is Weight Watchers for them, is fiber the answer, how long to workout.I try to answer as many of them as I can. I did get a link for a website I would like to share… Before I even get into this, I did not get any type of payment or reward for talking about this. I was sent a link to this website, and i saw that it was not about losing […]

I am on a blogging tear lately!I have decided to try to make more frequent posts. Why? Well……….I really think that blogging helps me with weight loss! Actually, I think blogging helps people lose weight. It wasn’t like that for me four months ago!In fact, if it weren’t for my wife, you might have never seen this blog! I remember starting my blog in April. I didn’t tell anyone I was doing it. I just wanted a place to write down my weight loss, and a few ideas I had. I am not the best writer in the world, but I love to put my ideas on paper!I got the idea of a blog from my brother.About 90% of you know who my brother is because he has brought a lot of traffic! For the ones that do not, he is Joe Posnanski. He is a sports columnist for the […]

I am usually off of work on Tuesdays. It is a great day for me to catch up on sleep, and doing things around the house. But I am working today, Well, not yet, but in a little while. I was going to take a vacation this week being it was my 5 year anniversary, but I decided to just take off the weekend. So when I woke up, I was a little irritated. Granted, I make my own schedule at work (to a point, I am very fair!), but I just did not feel motivated to get up.I am sure you have felt that way before! The dog was very annoying. I just wanted to sleep. She just wanted to bark.She won! Finally, around 6:30am I woke up. That is late for me, I am usually up around 5am. I really felt behind!I was considering skipping the gym today! […]
