All the stress from work last year has taken it's toll on my body. Bad environments and bad habits have been really doing some awful things to me. This time last year I weighed 155 pounds. I wasn't perfect by any means but i fit all of my clothes and I felt healthy which was important for me.Far too much eating out, late night snacking and sitting on my ass has caused me to balloon out to 180 pounds. I don't like this and my ulcer likes this even less.
We have a mexico trip booked for March and I am going to try and drop as much weight as I can so I will be fit enough to enjoy the outdoors. I am shooting for 20 pounds gone in two months. Now some may think that is a lot but my body seems to be able to shed weight fairly easily with adjusted diets and exercise. I am also hoping this will help me and my ulcer (who i have taken to calling cthulhu) get along better. If anyone knows of a good routine that I can do from home ( i have a weight bench) that will help me turn some of this fat into muscle I would love to hear from you.
So here are some shots of me in all of my chubby glory. It looks like the pics have been stretched horizontally alas they have not.
