Day 76 – 214.2 pounds

D.76-214.2 –  I stepped on the scale; stepped off and on again; and then did it one more time.  Holy shit! This is the lowest I’ve ever weighed probably since middle school!!  It seems I may have lost more weight in New York City than I had originally thought.  I did feel a little bloated when weighing myself yesterday, which made me fear I had gained weight during my trip.  Maybe I was still carrying around the extra weight from the late meal the night before?

I got a little emotional seeing this number.  There was a time not too long ago when I weighed over 300 lbs.  How much more? I was never quite sure as the scale didn’t go higher than that.  My weight loss journey has brought me countless friends, brought me confidence, turned me into a 10-time marathoner, even gave me the courage to come out.  I can go on for days about this, but the important thing today is that I feel like I’m once again back on this wonderful path: picking up where I left off.

Once again, I am thankful for each and every one of you who have supported me, sent me private messages, commented, or liked these posts.  You keep me on track and you let me know that I’m not alone.  I thank you and love you!  (Down 17.5 pounds)


No formal exercise and lots of sitting as I spent most of the day waiting for our flight, then sitting in the plane for hours, and then rushing over to USC for my class at night.


Had a very early start and didn’t eat anything on my way out.


Once I was done with the project I was working at in the morning I had to rush over to Riverside county so I gave in to convenience and ended up buying a sausage and egg McFuffin from McDonald’s.  Not a great choice, but I was hangry at this point.


For dinner, I ended up eating really well.  I sautéed some vegetables and baked a breaded Tilapia.  The food was delicious and cooked by me!
