So, I just weighed myself, I am currently, as of 7:20pm, 26th March 2013 -
20 Stone 3 Pounds
I’m 6”4’ - which goes a slight way to explaining my weight, but it still isn’t any kind of excuse, I am fat, very fat, and very unhealthy, I eat far too much food, and far too much of the wrong kind of food. Pair that with the fact that I basically sit at the computer all day, then you have the reason why I’ve gotten this way.
I used to be fairly energetic, I used to be out every afternoon after school either on my trampoline or mountain biking, but since University, and getting more into computers, I’ve lost all my motivation for any sort of activity, aside from the very occasional walk.
I understand the silly irony of partly blaming my excessive use of computers as to why I weigh so much, while using a website to document my progress, but tumblr seems to be the best place for me to keep a record of this, even if no one sees it, it will still be so useful for me to see my progress, either to keep myself motivated, or to kick my ass when I stop bothering.
Simply put, this is one of those first day of the rest of my life things, and I hope to be at least 15 Stone (210 lb) eventually, I haven’t set a goal date, since I don’t know how well I will do until I try for a while and see some progress, but simply put, 15 stone is getting towards ideal weight for me and since I have a fair amount of muscle, I imagine that I will look a lot better regardless, and I will keep going after that until I am happy that I am as fit and healthy as I can be, and then I will keep it up.
I’m not sure whether I should post a “before” photo, perhaps I will in the very near future.
Either way, I have literally nothing to do tomorrow, so I see no reason why I can’t go for a run, or at the very least, a brisk walk, as well as start having smaller portions.
