All Potatoes All the Time

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve made an update here. I’ve got lots to catch up on and to be fair the title of this post really has nothing to do with this update. I just happened to be going down a YouTube vortex today about the potato only diet and I’ve found

The Plan

The Plan Day 1 – 244

If you’ve been following along, you know this has been a pretty long (and to this point) and rather sad journey. I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “failing to plan is planning to fail.” So have I. And I fancy myself a pretty analytics guy who tends to lay things out and makes a ton

10 Years

A Decade of Weight Gain Ends Today

Things just got weird. I’ve been working on making some technical changes to the blog here over the last couple of days. I’ve migrated the site onto a much more stable hosting environment and as of this evening I’ve installed a security certificate on the site as well (hence the https in the URL). Why


I Know What Needs To Be Done – Can I Do It?

239.5 – No Fast Food

This is really what it boils down to. No. Fast. Food. It can’t be a once a day thing. It can’t be a once a week thing. Once a month? Maybe but even that it’s probably too much (at least until I get to my goal weight). Today is day two. Tomorrow will be day

A Look Back

242.5 – A Look Back

Well where do we start? Back on November 2nd I wrote a post called The November Nine. My intent was to lose nine pounds in the month of November. As you can tell by the title of today’s post I failed. I’m still trying. I’m still focusing and obsessing on my weight on a daily

November Nine

241.5 – The November Nine

The Wife has been telling me for quite some time that I need to have a plan. I need to have goals. I need to have something concrete in place. She’s absolutely right. If you look back at recent posts the lowest I’ve been is 237. Today I’m 241 (Yesterday to be exact… I didn’t
