hey gang, it`s been a while since i could think of something to talk about. one of my good friends at the gym, gave me some advice, and told me what he did to lose weight and build muscle. he suggested having the last meal of the day at 7pm, going to bed at 9pm and getting up at 5am. after a few days of thinking about as i didn`t want to go to bed that early, i revised his schedule so that my last meal was at 10pm, i went to bed at 12am, and got up at 8am. this did help a little as i started sleeping better, but as for the weight loss, it wasn`t much help.
then i thought about about a 2 months ago, i started getting 15,000 steps in a day. seeing how easy it was, and with not too much more effort than getting 10,000 steps in a day, i decided to keep it up. one day while telling one of the gym`s personal trainers about it and showing your my progress on the fitbit app, she noticed fitbit was also recording calories burnt. she knew what i was trying to lose weight and asked what i was eating on a daily basis. i told her about 4 meals a day. i gave her an idea of what was on each plate, and she did a guesstimation on how many calories it was per day, and told me i was eating more calories than i was burning.
she suggested cutting out one eal each day, and for my last meal, no carbs. i followed her advice, and in less that 5 weeks i dropped 22 pounds. following the advice of both these people, i was getting better rest, i was eating better in regards to weight loss, and i was getting better gains in the gym. i have so much energy now, i am all but bouncing when i got for my walks to and from the gym.
i recently moved to a new home, filled with great people who seem very supportive of my efforts. i have been several new friends as well. you could say i was living at home, although it was one of my sisters homes, not my mom`s. every time i told them about my achievements i got looks of attitude and rolling eyes, like they didn`t give a fuck. plus her eldest son was a real asshole. so i knew i needed to get the fuck out of that negative environment, now i am much happier, and have positive support both at home and the gym.
getting back to the weight loss thing, i am 19 pounds from my goal weight of 244 pounds, but i am thinking of going a little lower, like to around 235 pounds. the way i am losing weight now, that shouldn`t take too long to achieve. i figure by Christmas, i`ll be wearing a sandwich board so people can see me, LOLOLOL!!! see image below, in case you`re not sure what a sandwich board is. with love from Wes!! hugs!!!
