Alright, since so many people have been curious about what I did to lose weight, change my life, and what my tattoo means. This is where i will just direct them. I have been meaning to do this for a while. And if you have a problem with anything I put on here, just hold your breath…no one gives a fuck.
Alright, when I started to lose weight it was about November of 2010. I really only started because I had intended to for a while, and it really was something I wanted to do. Not only for the attention from the opposite sex, but just to be confortable in my own skin and be able to take my shirt off and do stuff like that. And the only thing I did was just to see if I saw a change, I cut all fast food and bad shit out of my diet. And it took a couple weeks of determination and then I saw a difference in the mirror one morning after I got out of the shower. And then checked the scale and I lost 10 pounds. And that moment I became addicted. And never became satisfied. Really really made my diet way more ridgid, started doing P90X, and just had determination. Then time just really went by fast. And I never was satisfied and quit till about june. The final losses looked like this:
Pant size: 38 to a 28
Weight: 210 to 155
Shirt size: XL - Small
Really for all the people who ask me about my diet I can only describe it as all the stuff you didn’t want to eat as a kid at the dinner table. Whole foods, veggies, and no empty calories. Just eat smart. Any fast food in your diet and you’re doing it wrong. Hands down. I reccoment P90X to anyone just getting started with exercise.
But now for why I got my first name tattooed on my side. There are alot of details that I’d rather not share on facebook but I can give you an idea. My parents got a “divorce/seperation” in Feburary of 2011. My dad moved out pretty quickly because the situation wasn’t good. And as I’m sure you can imagine its hard. And hard on any family. But I kinda was at that age where either I’m completely shut out, or in the middle of it, and my opinion on it is going to be faught over like a peice of land in a war. Unfortunately it was the second one. And I really really felt unwanted and unconfortable in my own house. Just because it was normal family hostility. And I really for a few months was on my own with no one to talk to, get help on homework, or just vent to family wise. And it was really really hard at first. But then I put all energy, focus, and anger into my physical appearance. Meanwhile on my own, I held a steady job at a Chiropractic Health Center, kept a car running, graduated high school, and developed a college/career plan that will have me set up very nicely. On top of losing all the weight and changing my whole life. I did it all myself. My last name wasn’t unique enough, so I got my first name on my side that I look at everyday and it reminds me all I will ever need is myself.
