1,078 sticks of butter!

One Thousand Seventy Seven point 6 sticks of butter (to be exact), that is how much I weigh (so you don’t have to do the math that is 269.4 LBS). This is the heaviest I have ever been in my life! But that number goes no where but down from here.

As the old saying goes today is the first day of the rest of my life! I am sick and tired of sitting on the sideline waiting for something to happen! Life is happening around me every minute of everyday and if I keep sitting on the sideline I am going to miss it. I joined a 12 week weight loss challenge with my best friend and I am ready to jump start my life and get healthier and slimmer. The next 12 weeks are going to be a challenge both physically and mentally, but I need to do it. I want to be able to walk up to the third floor of my building and not be sucking wind by the time I get there. I want to be able to work a shift at the bar and not be so tired and in pain from carry all this fat around. I honestly don’t care if I come in last place in the challenge I am in, as long as I weigh less than I started with then I am good with it, the prize money I could win is an incentive, but honestly I just need to kick start my fitness journey and this is what I need.

What I love about the gym I am working out at for this challenge, is that it is small group training. So you get almost one on one training which is exactly what I need. I need someone who will push me past my comfort zone and challenge me and force me to grow and get better. I could go to the gym on my own (but I don’t really know what I am doing) but the problem is I go to do weights and put the lowest weight on that I can and I don’t challenge myself enough. I need someone to push me to do heavier weights, or one that extra set, things like that, and Beta O is that place. I worked out today and although I almost puked I didn’t, and to be honest I feel great now! I am so motivated to continue! I am heading to grocery store to stock up on good food!

Here is to making what is left of 2018 the best it can be!

Side note about the photo: This is the mentality I had before! I made excuses oh I cant go to the gym because of this or that. That stops right here right now. I am my first priority. I may need to say no to going out with friends and say no to meetings after work. Please know it is not that I am avoiding anyone, but I need to do this for me. I need to be happy again!

One Thousand Seventy Eight sticks of butter and dropping!

  1. Good for you Richie. Like you said it doesn’t matter if you win as long as you are lighter than when you started. I am sure you will be a success and seeing your determination I started my low carb again. Best of luck to both of us. #life is good, #melt that butter


  2. Whether you can or cannot, you’re right. For the path you take is yours alone. True. Friends will join you along the way. For when you reach the end, it is only the beginning.
