537 Pound Is As Bad As It Sounds

Welp, there it is! I mentioned in the previous novel that I was weighed at the medical center. 537, what a shocking number, I knew I was in the 500s, I guess part of me hoped I was a lot closer to the 400s, and it just makes me wonder how much higher I was, which is depressing. It really feels like I'm starting over, or like this is the beginning because for the first time there is a number, only now can I track it. When I arrived home the other day I discovered the new scale had arrived. I weighted myself again just to try it out, and to my surprise it got it exactly right, so truly I can track my weight now.

I also received my Polar FT4 heart rate monitor, I planned on using this in conjunction with my miles if I were ever able to jump back on the horse. It registers your height, age and some other things to track your progress and calories burned, but perhaps I didn't research it enough, because the maximum weight  it goes up to s 439! I'm not sure if I can use it for its intended purpose so its basically just a fancy watch for now. I also finally got some vitamins, but I cant take them till I talk with a doctor, because it might have some weird side effect between the depression medication, so that's on hold.

I'm just about ready to move forward, and kick my weight loss journey back into full gear, but I need a jolt of something to get the engines running. I learned in some of the group sessions I had that it is important to have daily goals, regardless of how small, and though I didn't set any for today I do have some for tomorrow.

Like cleaning my room, back when I first starting cutting back my eating late last year, I also cleaned and rearranged my room. My room beforehand was always a mess and never clean for more than a week, but once I did the overhaul last year it became more mine, I took a bit more pride in it, and it was just nicer to be in. Well since mid February my rooms state has been in decline, and though its nothing like before, its so cluttered and unorganized that it really just brings me down. So tomorrow I'm going to get it back in shape. Maybe Ill add a few more things we will see.

  1. I think you'll feel better once you get your room in order. My mind is much calmer when my environment is clean and organized.

    You aren't far off from the 400's; you will get there Brandon!

    1. Cleaning my room certainly did lift me up a bit.

  2. Hi Brandon, I hope you do follow up with those appointments and that they help. I know all too well how hard it is to see the number on the scale but it's good to know where your at so when you weigh yourself the next time you will be able to track your progress. Hope you rest well and have a good night.

  3. Thanks for sharing that with us Brandon, I know how difficult it is to do that. Its also nice to get it off your chest as well. It could be a lot worse my friend. You can still walk, so do it man. Walk as much as you can. My goal everyday is to walk. It's not much but at least I can still walk so that's what I'm going to do. I am impressed how you were able to stand on your feet and work these last couple weeks, that took some strength at your current weight, no wonder those toes were going numb. Even now I have problems standing on my legs for more than a few minutes. If I walk, I am moving and I can go for about twenty minutes, but I don't know how you were able to stand on your feet for a complete work shift. You are young and healthy, you can do it. I wish I would have before I burned out my knees. It is much harder now

    1. Thanks Josh Im going to do everything I can to take back control and lose the weight. Im hoping next week will be a return to form.

      And you keep at it too, I know your situation is tough as well, but any and everything we do to try to lose weight, is a step in the right direction (regardless of the amount of steps)

  4. Brandon, glad to hear you are home, and still have a healthy attitude. I always find I do better with weight loss if I know where I am, weight-wise. It's harder to wonder if you have lost weight than it is to know. I advise strongly that you only weight once or twice a month, because as a larger person, your weight can fluctuate as much as 5-10 pounds without really meaning you've gained weight. And it will make or break your day if you are weighing every day or two. I know this well! My guess is you've probably lost at least 40 pounds with the difference in how that shirt buttoned. Keep up the good work, we are all behind you 100%.

    And to Josh, if you read this...every pound you lose takes about 10 off your knees, so keep doing what you can please! We love you guys :)

    1. I honestly feel like being able to weigh myself will improve my weight loss. I'm going to try and choose a healthy frequency in which I way myself. because you are right, sometimes the numbers don't tell the full story, and Im not always rational enough to understand that.

      Thanks so much for the support.
