Let me start out this week’s blog in another direction. I got a lot of feedback from last weeks blog, and mostly people saying they wished they could do it, they wish they had the time, my kids keep me so busy, and I think you just have to believe in yourself. There are 24 hours in the day and you aren’t at work or dragging your kids around that whole time. I am all over the fucking place. But I still seem to make the time for the things that need to get taken care, including my family, friends, businesses – You name it. I think you just have to believe in yourself. If you were able to believe in Santa Claus for like 8 years, you can believe in yourself for like 5 minutes. Seriously.
But in all fairness, the truth is that I’m having enough trouble saving myself that I can’t save you. I wish I could but I can’t. That’s why while we have friends on our journey, loved ones, family, and in the end, it’s your journey and you have to go out alone. I’m not saying that a couple cheerleaders on the way aren’t a good thing. But what works for me might not work for you. My goals might not be the same as yours. I have been tweaking my journey for over four years. And here I am still going. Lol. Take that doubters and haters. It’s all part of the journey. And in the end there’s always something that will work for you when the time comes.
I posted a transformation Tuesday photo Instagram it was very well received. It definitely puts things into perspective and included a lot of non-scale victories.
Journey started on Jan 6, 2014 – 1,653 Days Ago!
4 1/2 years ago
5xl to Xl t-shirts
4xl to Xl shorts and sweats
Down 10 pants sizes. (60 to 40)
I am 2.4 pounds from my first major goal of 2018. Once I hit that. I’ll have 15 more to go to have completed my 50Lbs lost in 2018. I am hoping at 2 pounds a week to have that done by the end of September. Sooner would be nice but I am taking it 2 lbs at a time.
Oh did I say size 40 above? Yup! I finally got into my size 40 Nautica Jeans that I have had for over 2 years a few days ago. Now they are a little muffin top heavy but they buttoned with no problem. They might even make their first appearance over the next weekend or two. I have posted about them before and they have been a goal of mine for a long time. I guess once they fit nicely we are going to have to go for the 38s. yeah buddy!
I haven’t been a size 40 since freshman year of high school. I remember how beaten up I was because my dad couldn’t find any 40 corduroys for my first day of school and was in a panic. I think it might have been one of the first time that I knew I was in trouble and years of emotional and comfort eating were to follow.
I want to thank everyone for reaching out about the job… Apparently I should hear in the next few days. And there are always questions about the band when things like this come up. You do know that everyone in the band has legit jobs right? I am the only one who hustles without a 9-5. Most of those guys don’t have the stress or pressure that – that brings with it. So I would be happy with a little less stress, a little more fuck you money and being able to take a few nights off or turning down some shitty gigs and not have to worry about making ends meet. Plus I am ready for some new challenges. There is nothing wrong with that.
It was nice to have my coach tell me I was looking lean today. He’s a grump and doesn’t give too many compliments freely so there is that.
Well like I said last week. Keep doing you.
I am heading to the beach in a few hours and am just going to relax and not worry so much.
Peace, Love and Understanding,
