Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Today when I woke up, something felt different. I felt encouraged. I felt brave. I felt... ready. But ready for what? I hadn't spoken with anyone about what I had decided to do today. No one told me to do this. All of my friends and family are finding out by reading this blog post. I made the decision myself. I decided to stop making excuses. I went to Crunch and got my membership back.
For those of you that are new to my blog, I'll give you a recap. I was fat. Really fat. I got in a fairly bad car accident in August 2009 and when I was weighed at the hospital, they said I was 420 lbs. I had no idea I was that big. Two friends/coworkers of mine were into body building and fitness and agreed to train me. They taught me what to eat and how to exercise. I began a routine that over the course of a little over a year helped me lose 105 lbs. I got down to 315 lbs and then I got lazy again. My weight fluctuated over the years and has gone back up to around 345/350. I canceled my gym memberships and gave up.
Today that changes. Three weeks from today, I turn 29 years old. By my 30th birthday, I want to be at 250 lbs or less. Nothing will get it in my way this time. Not jobs (or lack there of). Not women (or lack there of). Not friends (or lack there of). I am doing this for me. I am changing for me. I am Tommy G.

I haven't been here in quite a while. In fact, I've completely slacked off. Haven't updated the blog in forever and have been eating/drinking terribly. I didn't really think much about my weight loss until last night. This picture was taken of me with the band Breathe Carolina after they performed at Splash:
I'm certainly smaller than I used to be.
But I'm also bigger than I think I am.
Something has to change.
That something is me.
But where to begin?
