MDG-Before-1On January 20, 2022 I embarked on a weight loss journey, with the hope of losing an enormous amount of weight. My name is Mitch, and I am morbidly obese. I hope before this year is out that I will no longer be able to say that.

The evening before I started the program, I had a friend take a couple of pictures of me. For the entire world to see, this is my before picture. I hope that soon enough I will be able to start posting progress pictures that will show marked improvement.

This is now the third time in the last six years that I am starting this (or a similar) weight loss program. Both previous times I lost nearly or over 100lbs. Both times, within a year or two, I had gained it all back. My goal this time therefore is twofold:

  1. Lose the weight; and
  2. Keep it off!

I have always said that my ultimate weight-loss goal is to get down to 200lbs. As I have no intention of posting (Now or ever) what I weigh, you will have to settle for knowing how much I have lost, as on a weekly basis I will write how much I lost in the week, and since starting.

As I mentioned, this is the third time that I am starting an extreme program. In both previous attempts I have had great success, and then faltered and fallen back to where I had started. I hope that history does not repeat itself. As hope is not a strategy, I will try to change my habits and my lifestyle in order to make that happen.

Each time I went through the program, I wrote a journal. As I expect a lot of my experiences – with regard to pace, feelings, and the like will be similar, I will be borrowing heavily from that document (not all 300 pages of it, but a lot of it).

I will mention that while there will be a lot copied from it, there will be things that go into that journal that will not be shared publicly. Sorry, you don’t get to know every embarrassing personal detail of my life… just most of them.

I will do my best to write every day about my experience and feelings and goals and such. If I miss a day I apologize. I do hope that you will enjoy it!
