April 1st, 2015 Weigh Day Edition

April 1st, 2015 Weigh Day Edition

One of my biggest fears during my relapse and regain period was: Will I ever be able to stop this? Will my body respond in a positive way if I truly made a commitment to turn this around? I made some attempts prior to this 49 week period.

A few days here and there, maybe a week at one point, but I didn't seem to have the same ability as before. It scared me.

After today's weigh-in, a colleague of mine told me how happy they were for me and how they were really concerned because not turning it around would have been the worst thing for me on so many levels, not just physically--but mentally and emotionally. 

I'm incredibly blessed and grateful to be where I am right now.

This number represents a 4 pound loss for the previous three week period, bringing the 49 week total to 147 pounds down.

After feeling so incredibly hopeless and lost, I can tell you with certainty, there is hope. 

There's so much more I want to write about tonight, but I can't. I'm too tired. It's been a long day.

As much as I didn't want to miss a workout tonight, I honestly feel it's the best decision I can make at the moment.

My Tweets Today:

Thank you for reading and your continued support,


  1. Great work. Steady progress, and you have earned it with your consistency.

  2. congrats, Sean. Well earned! :)

  3. Golly, Sean, you're half the man you used to be!

  4. SO glad you didn't give up!

  5. You should be very proud of all the work and discipline with controlling your calories to reach your current weight of 247 pounds. Workouts - I used to miss most of mine due to running out of time during the day, so I decided to shift my schedule forward one hour (waking up and going to sleep one hour earlier) in order to workout 1st thing in the morning. I have not missed any workouts since doing that except for days when I'm sick.

    1. Excellent strategy, TL. It is all about finding what works for us individually. Many times, in the exercise department, it's as if I'm still searching for my groove. I'm okay with it most of the time--but I know, without a doubt, there's room for improvement. Especially in keeping with a schedule.

  6. Bravo! Bravo!!! Fantastic loss, Sean!


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Thank you for your support!
