Ok time to come clean. I am fat. Not just fat, Orca fat. My 40 years and continued eating habits of a 20 year old stoner have caught up with me. My metabolism can no longer keep up with my calorie intake and lack of exorcise. Because of my weight I have sleep apnea and I am experiencing other health issues. It is time that I clean up my act. It is time that everyone sees less of me, in a sense.
Here are the gory details:
Height = 6’2″
Weight = No clue, last time I was weighed I was 360 and that was 4 years ago.
Waistline = 56″
Shirt size = 3X
I have two major problems that I need to overcome. I love food; to make matters worse I love potatoes, rice, bread, cheese, ice cream, cookies, brownies, cakes, pie and chips. All the worst things are the things that I love. The other problem is that I eat when I am bored. I nibble constantly.
My dear wife Jonette has a coworker that has used the HCG diet with great success. The HCG diet is a modified paleo diet that includes a supplement that suppresses apatite. I have my doubts but starting today I am giving it a shot.
The diet works like this. I start taking the HCG supplement twice a day; one dose before lunch and another dose before dinner. I have just taken my first 1ml of HCG. It is supposed to taste like chocolate. Yea right it is freak’n nasty. For the first 3 days I load up and eat whatever the hell I want to eat. If declaring war on 2 dozen chocolate chip cookies and a quart of Ben and Jerrys floats my boat for breakfast, I can go right ahead and begin my campaign of shock and awe. I have only 3 days to complete my assault and then the UN takes over on Friday.
For the next 27 days I am restricted to 2 4 oz servings of lean beef or chicken, some salad and two servings of fruit. I cannot have beef twice on the same day, same with chicken. If lunch is chicken then dinner is beef. Apples and oranges make the best fruit servings. The fruit can be eaten with my meal or as snacks but only two a day. After 30 days I must no longer take the HCG supplement. I can go back on the supplement after 30 days if I choose.
I am not sure if the reports are true but people are losing a pound or more per day. Most scales only weigh up to 350 pounds so even at max effectiveness I will not be able to gauge my weight for at least 10 days, till after the 3 binge days, so that would be Friday. I am not expecting to lose a pound a day but it sure would be nice.
Starting on Friday I have committed myself to 27 days of food hell, afterwards I will go on a paleo diet to maintain and continue to lose weight. I hope all goes well. I have some favorite shirts that no longer fit and I would love to wear a Tanka Bar shirt, but the biggest they come is in 2X. It has been years since I was able to wear a 2X shirt so that would be nice. Tanka Bar shirts are yellow, one of my favorite colors so BONUS!
So that is my goal, wear a Tanka Bar shirt and start powwow dancing again and other things.
I plan on providing weekly updates as to my progress.
Wish me luck.
