Next week will mark the 5th anniversary of me hitting onederland for the first time. But my weight loss journey started long before that. it started in 2012 when I weighed in at a whopping 430 pounds.

The event that started my weight loss is a sad one, my dad died in November of 2012. He was overweight and his weight and sedentary life lead to his death. I was terrified that would happen to me if I didn’t change my life around.

I did just that. I already owned a fitbit so I vowed to take 10,000 steps every day in 2013 and I did, even if it meant me walking in place for an hour every day. In March of 2013 I started logging my food on myfitnesspal and by the end of the year I was down to 300 lbs. At the end of 2014 I was at 210 lbs.

On February 27th 2015 I weighed 199, the first time I was under 200 in my adult life. I’ve been around there ever since. Sure I’ve fluctuated a bit, I got up to 240 once but I was able to get that under control. I also got down to 188 once or twice but I’ve never been able to get any lower.

Today I’m at 208 lbs and I’m working my way back to onederland. I know I can do it, I’ve done it many times before but this time I don’t want to stop at 195 and say good enough. I want to keep losing until I hit a healthy BMI. I want to hit 170 and maybe posting this will give me the extra push I’ve been missing on all my previous attempts to not just lose weight bit become a healthier person.

Obligatory before and after
