Who Wants to Get Active? 2010

With ease.

Posted by ilived Mar 9, 2010

It sure seems as is my workouts get easier as lose the weight but I know I am sure feeling it right now.   I guess a combination of yard work, honey-do's and pushing a double stroller on my walks will catch up sometimes.  I feel great though!  The soreness is a good soreness.  It is still hard to get a full nights rest with my 2 year old and 9 month old.  But I will make it.  It is so funny to hear people to me how I need to try some "fad" diet or take some fat pill to help me lose my weight.  I just have to laugh and tell them
"no thanks", I got it.  When I tell them how I am doing it they back off and say it is too much work.  Whatever, no more diet sodas. no more fried food, no more white flour  and sweets plus some good old fashioned exercise.  I had gotten so complacent and lazy with my unhealthy lifestyle that it was easy for the fat denial to set in with no problem.  No more!  50+ lbs off in the last year and I refuse to go back. Good night all.

My pink cloud

Posted by ilived Mar 6, 2010

This week has been challenging to say the least.  I am happy to say I am down to 235!  20 lbs down and 35 to go.  My pants are getting baggy.  I am liking that.  To think, a little over a year ago I had to purchase size 42 jeans.  Now my 36's are baggy.  Since I started thid challenge.  I have been able to tighten my belt 2 more notches.  No that my "I love me moment" is done, I am about to call it a night. But I want to share this with everyone,


Everyday is beautiful; some are dreary and others are pretty,

I love them all and you would to if you where me.

To see that wonderful sunrise brings a smile to my heart,

Reminding everyday; it’s a brand new start.

Then to see the marvelous sunset in the west,

It is there reminding us all that we are truly blessed.

To realize that I took so much for granted makes me want to cry,

I am so thankful that I did not die.

So many people do not get the same opportunity,

That is why I need to be the best person that I can be.

It does not matter what it is; everything happens for a reason,

Unexplainable events will happen everyday and there will be a lot more to come.

Some are to never be figured out; just because you can’t does not mean that you are dumb.

Take a second and admire the world around you and be thankful you are still here.

Make it a habit, day after day, year after year




I wrote this after my accident and three week coma. I sometimes lose  sight of the little things and forget how fortunate I am just to be where I am.  I hope everyone has a good night!

What a week to start training.  My youngest was in the hospital.  I wrote on the wrong blog post.  The weather!!  But hey the walking is my stress relief.  Training went well despite the obstacles.  Sometimes, I might walk late at night or real early in the morning.  I can say that people are starting to comment on the weight loss.  That is a nice feeling and all but I don't want to be jinxed and screw up my stride.  It never fails, I will be doing real well and then get complacent and ultimately fall off course.  I am going in to this challenge with a LITTLE DIFFERENT MIND SET.  It is no longer an option for me.  I have to lose all of this fat in order to be around for my family.  Well, I will step down from my "rah rah" box for now.  I hope everyone has a great week!

Loving life

Hello everyone.  My name is Jason and I am a 36 year old father of three who has been in a bit of "fat" denial.  I have never been this weight before and it took me some time just to actually "see" just how big I had gotten.  Then when I was looking at some pics from a year ago, I started to realize I did not like what I saw.  I had an auto vs. construction accident 7 yrs ago in which I lost 75 lbs in three weeks while I was in a coma.  Umm... not wanting to go that route again.  I had to re-learn how to do everything like walk, talk and even how to swallow water.  The doctors said I needed to gain some weight back.  I went way to far and gained over 100 lbs back.  I tried to put it off on the Traumatic Brain Injury I had acquired. That excuse only goes so far.


Now I have made a miraculous recovery and I am trying to go back to work full time, lose 55 lbs and get off disability.  I have made it through some pretty challenging circumstances but losing this weight takes the cake.  I wish all of the others in this journey with me, "Good Luck!"  I hope everyone has a great day!
