Ht. 5'10", Start: 160 lb, Today: 191 lb (BMI: 27), Goal: 160 lb - Hi I'm Tommy. 7 months ago my girlfriend gave birth to our beautiful first son Oscar. But he's been quite ill, and I've had many sleepless nights fuelled by chips and beer staying up to look after him and get him to sleep. Since he was born I've put on around 2 stone and got the 'dad bod' which hasn't gone down well with my girlfriend. I wondered if anyone had experience of coping with raising young children cause I want to lose weight and become a better role model for my son.

Hi for anyone who reads,
It’s been quite a stressful end of week and this upcoming week will also be the most stressful until the end of June 7th! Finals is quite an important thing in college and should be the #1 priority when it approaches. Because of that I will not be able to blog about my adventures with food. :( I will be coming back after June 7th with an extendedly long blog post that summarizes my time and experiences during finals.
My up and coming thoughts about this is the following:
I’m worried of snacking due to the fact that it’s my #1 issue when I get stressed out. I’m doing a ton of cardio during finals to get all my stress out. I’m planning on running in the morning, and in the evening. My goal throughout this finals week is to not snack at all.
Good luck to me!

My workout’s are getting more and more intense which is eventually going to make me more and more tired. I hope i’ll have enough energy to do my homework. heh.
I have something running through my mind about the last meeting we had. There was a parent that was extremely restrictive of the iPhone that was given to the kid by the study. If he’s not in control of his technology that controls his weight-loss, how are you ever supposed to keep him responsible for losing weight? idk, just a thought I had.
I’m taking section exams in the next few days so the blogs may come out a little later than expected.
I’m going to be studying for quite a while today but I’ll be away from home so I wont have any tendencies to over eat. Wish me luck!
Don’t really remember to be honest. It was either nothing, or something so ... (view more)

I weighed in at 189.5! I used to be at a 33.15 BMI and I’m now at 30.59. Wow. 18.5-24.9 is considered a “normal” BMI. I’m not far away from the 24.9! Hopefully I can get all the way to maybe a 23 or 22 BMI. Each time I weigh myself and see a lower weight I get a surge of motivation to keep going.
Breakfast: Toast and Trout
Had some toast and had to add a little protein to my cause I’m going to be working out after my 2 classes which are gonna take forever. I’m pretty pumped to lose all of this weight. My mind has been racing about what is going to happen after the study, how its going to work, if I keep the weight or just get it all back. I think just having the conscious fear that I could lose it could help me keep it off.
There was free sandwiches at my school. I ate half of it. Not too much going on after class since class... (view more)

Today was a stressful day
Breakfast: Toast with Salmon Spread
I was quite grumpy this morning. Probably because I didn’t have dinner last night. I just wasn’t hungry and in a bad mood at night. Not quite sure how to explain it. Everything felt like it was pushing on me so that it could see how far my pressure point is before I blow up. Eek. Scary.
I had to go to sports therapy today. This was my 2nd to last one before they can claim me as “Recovered”. I’m not sure that I really ate anything that day.
Dinner: Mod Pizza
I went over to my girlfriends house and I had Mod Pizza, which is like subway for pizza. I couldn’t weigh it so I ate half of it and stored the rest of it away. I was studying the whole day so I was fairly stressed. I didn’t go about everything though!
I think food ... (view more)

I’m not 100% sure how many people read this but that has nothing to do with my goal. My goal is all for myself, to understand what I’m doing and how I feel about it.
If you are reading this and are having trouble weighing out your foods or have trouble losing weight even though you still weigh out your foods or even just simply have a hard time not snacking. I CHALLENGE YOU. I challenge you to try and dish for 1 week straight with out snacking. A week! Try it out.
Breakfast: Toast with Almond butter and Banana
Very yummy and something I could get used to :)
Nothing special. Just following each day.
I was studying a ton so I didn’t think too much about food.
Sorry this one is so short. :')

School is really stressing me out. I’m coming up to finals week very soon. Having my last end-of-midterm tests? Weird I know. Finals are going on around June 5th or so.. Scary stuff right there. I didn’t get to workout today which probably is the reason why I feel a tad more stressed than normal. :( Just goes to show how exercise is sooo important.
I knew I had a long day so I just decided to have something different other than waffles or cereal. From what I could tell it kept me pretty energized until roughly 3. Maybe I’ll do that on days I know I cant have lunch till roughly 3:30-4.
Lunch: Chicken & Salad
I actually brought this to school thinking I would eat it but I didn’t want to eat it during class cause people would give me weird looks i’m sure. Anyway, I didn’t end up... (view more)

Ht. 5'6", Start: 200 lb, Today: 192 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 150 lb - Whoops! I double posted a blog post. My bad.
Thinking back on the days. I HATE weighing out foods oh my gosh, it is so annoying. But I realize if I don’t I wont eat the right amount of food. I’m training myself.
Nothing too much. Just enough to get me through the day.
I made a bunch of chicken so you’ll probably be seeing more chicken during my lunches. haha.
To be honest I don’t quite remember what I ate. I write some of these the day after so I totally forget. Must not have been eventful otherwise I’d probably remember. Either way I’ve been eating less of foods just because I don’t do sauce them up at all which allows me eat less and less.

Ht. 5'6", Start: 200 lb, Today: 192 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 150 lb - Day 18-
little note: I don’t blog on weekends. Just don’t have the time.
I looked at my weight this morning and i’m 192.00- Pretty happy about seeing my weight go down even though sometimes i do tricky stuff. I think when I do those tricky things I feel guilty and end up not doing it all too much. A habit I have to break very soon.
Really got tired of the waffles lol. I went to math class and the gym. I’m going to start a workout routine. I’m curious if my weight is going to go up when I work out? I guess we’ll find out. My goal is to go to the gym everyday I go to school (Which is everyday!) I hope I have the mind power to be able to do it.
I had a really bad stomachache I couldn’t really eat. I drank a ton of water. I’m sure I’ll have something good for dinner. I always wonder... (view more)

I got sick of cereal and I’m almost about to get sick of waffles. It seems to boost my energy in the morning and I can barely think of a time that is really needed to skip breakfast! It’s the most important meal of the day.
Lunch: gourmet sandwich
I had a meeting with my old Young Life leader and he bought me a sandwich it was really kind of him. I didn’t ask him to buy it but I also told him about the diet I’m doing but it was a special occasion. I ate half the sandwich and let him keep the other half and put it in the fridge.
I made some rice and I was like eh it’s boring so I weighed the cheese slice, and took out the weight from the rice. I’m not sure if that’s alright but it was kind of just a fun thing to try out.
Overall today was an alright day. It was sunny and happy day. I feel like when it’s sunny I just dont feel the need to eat. I make sure to drink a ton of water during those days though.

Today I feel somewhat energized, I woke up way too early so that I could do some work at the library at my university. I cant seem to work at home for the life of me.
I packed some lunch with me because I wont be able to go home until 3. These days are usually the most stressful because I have two, two hour classes right next to each other.
It was good I wasn’t all too hungry so I just ate a little bit of rice and went off to bed. I just felt way too busy that day and had no time to really think about food!

I’m Back! A little recap. Midterms were insane. I was very close to eating the whole fridge at times but I didn’t! I was extremely stressed out but I locked myself in my room so I wouldn't go on a junk escapade. I think I’ll be just fine. I don’t think I’ve gained any weight currently. I’m going to the gym to do weighted squats which is really nice because I miss doing things at the gym. I’m drinking coconut water for muscle movement. I want to be pretty flexible and be able to run with ease.
Uhm. It was yummy. Felt guilty for eating pizza for breakfast though lol. I had to quickly get out of the house to go for my midterm at 8:30 am. After the study I need to figure out a daily breakfast item that is healthy. Like toast, almond butter and banna slices. That sounds really good!
Lunch: I dont think I had lunch? Or maybe I just quite don’t remember.
Pretty sure I just wasn’t all too hungry that day. Thats good-ish.
On to the next day.

Ht. 5'6", Start: 200 lb, Today: 196 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 150 lb - Day ???(i'll figure it out next post)
Alright so I’m writing this Wednesday after my midterm. Midterms was insane. At this point I had to stop thinking about food all together to be able to stop from snacking. Recently I went on the scale and I’m at 193 or 2? I forget which but it was one of those. I’m happy to say I’m almost 10 pounds closer to my goal that I was from day 1! This has been an extreme struggle for me but I’m going to keep going at it until I reach 150 pounds or even less. So today I'm going to start blogging again after I figure out what day I'm on.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 300 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI %tile: 92), Goal: 130 lb - I'M A MOM POSTING THIS FOR YOU KIDS TO SEE.I just wanted to give y'all a happy update. In 2014 I wrote on here about my obese daughter becoming pregnant. At the time she was around 300 pounds and by the time the baby was born (overdue at 41 weeks) my daughter had lost 20 pounds by making a lifestyle change for the sake of her daughter. Obviously, it is hard to be pregnant at any age, but being obese, and 16 at the time…it wasn't easy. She started eating healthy foods and cut out the junk, and she started going on walks early in the pregnancy. She said she wanted to loose weight to be able to take maternity pictures and see the bump because she carried a lot of fat in the belly area. Even though she only lost around 20 pounds, it made a difference and you could see her bump and she got to take the pictures she wanted. They are very beautiful and she looks clearly pregnant...

I’m going to keep this day short because not too much happened.. Day of my mid-term for microeconomics. Very stressful day.
I don’t have very many breakfast items so i’m kind of limited to what I can take in. I think I didn’t have that much to eat but I think it was because I was really stressed about the test so I couldn’t really think about food.
Class went until 3:00 but at least the midterm is over.
not very hungry, can wait till dinner.
Nothing really out of the norm. Was very yummy. Spent the rest of the day studying for math and playing some video games. Tried to chill out after the midterm.
Emotionally I feel alright, I still feel like I’m focusing a lot more on food and I am also missing it MORE because I have to think about when I can eat and how much I can eat.
The thing I’m most worried about is rebounding out of this behavior i’m trying to put myself into which is cutting back on eating.
