Introduction

Hello everyone!

First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I am a 29 year old man who is fighting the war of weight loss. I started my journey weighing in at 480 pounds, I am currently down to 440 pounds. I still have a long way to go but I am definitely taking it one day at a time. I workout 5 times a week and visit a registered dietician about once a month. At the moment I am not working, I got laid off from my job as a Project Engineer in the Construction Industry back in May. You know I hate the fact that I lost my job, but I think it took that to jump start my weight loss journey. I have been on many interviews since being laid off and have had no luck, and I know that my weight plays a big part in people not wanting to hire me. Do they tell me that? Of course not, but that's just the reality of situation. But its ok,it just pushes me harder in the gym. Also I don't have much of a social life.I am sick and tired of being lonely, I have alot to offer but that gets covered up with my weight. In my free time I like to cook, read, watch movies.

With all that being said, the purpose of this blog is to share my journey and also give you an in depth look into the very personal thoughts of an overweight person.
