Fat Tuesday: I’m Fat and I Can’t Stop F^!*ing Eating!

April 10, 2012 § 4 Comments

One of this blogs many personalities is as a dieting/health blog, a recounting of how I lost 150 pounds.  Maybe by continuing to talk about it, I’ll stop shoving sugar and grease into my fat fucking face.

My story of weight gain and weight loss has been well-documented on this blog.  The much shorter story is this: I weighed a lot, then I weighed less, then I weighed more, then I weighed less, and then at one point after moving to Los Angeles I weight 210 lbs, which was 150 lbs less than I weighed when I graduated from college.

That’s basically it.

That 210 pounds was a year ago and while I’ve been able to keep myself in check along the way, I’ve still put on 20 pounds in the last year.  Luckily, 20 pounds is a bitch ass number that I can whip into shape quickly, because I dominated 150 pounds so 20 looks like Matthew Lawrence compared to Joey Lawrence.  Yeah, Matthew Lawrence is significant, but he’ll never be the guy that said “Woah” or the guy that said anything, really.

In picture form, my struggle with fatness is as such:

I’m 6, rockin’ my Alf shirt:

Then I’m 17, fat expanded

Then I’m graduating college, dealing with the Yo-Yo effect

Then last year, I hit my lowest weight ever.  (Remember that I am 6’6″)

I’m doin’ a “Fuck yeah” eye wink in that picture.  Never felt so amazing and I had hit my “swagger point,” which is a term I made up and am now rolling with.

Swagger Point (Swaa-gurrrr Poy-nt):

1. The point during weight loss in which you feel really amazing about yourself and you say to being fit: “Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around and desert you.”

2. A “makeout point” for urban youth.

Dealing with the first definition of Swagger Point, I firmly hit that when I went under 215 for the first time.  My jaw was tight, my jeans were practically skinny, and shirts that once looked like baby clothes on me were genuinely loose.  How could anyone possibly want to ever give that up?

Well, certain laziness and JUSTIFICATION OF BAD EATING (one of the keys to gaining weight back) has caught up to me and I’m on the wrong side of the hill and falling fast.

I went to the gym 3 times last week, which is good, but 4-5 times is better.  I had a few days last week where I ate healthy, and then on Saturday me and some friends had a party of sorts that made us all very hungry and I ate mini-corn-dogs-a-plenty.

Time to stop the cycle so that I can get back to my swagger point.  Writing this today is going to help me maintain that.  I need to continue to be a square… and I need to find that Alf t-shirt.  Might fit me again one day.

    If I could make a recommendation I would say to dump sweeteners and wheat from your diet. I’m a big fan of eating low-carb, it works well for me. But if you could just remove the three main offenders (sugar, fructose and wheat – including the supposedly healthy whole grain) you probably wouldn’t have to worry about weight issues.

    There is a book out called “Why We Get Fat” by Gary Taubes that explains quite well why eating carbohydrate is the reason why we’re having the obesity epidemic. You also might want to pick up “Wheat Belly” by Dr. William Davis if you’re cuious why wheat is really bad for your health.

    I’m struggling right now too!! My weaknesses are sugar and late-night snacking. Those weekend “parties of sorts” can wreak havoc too. :( I’m just trying to stay active and find alternatives though! Way to kick ass on 150 lbs, you got the 20 no probs.

    I love that you have N*Sync on your 17 yr old shirt ha ha!

    That is way impressive! It’s so easy to slide, so it’s good you’re taking control early on. Keep up the great work. :)
