And I’m excited! Down to 195 finally after being stuck at 197 for a couple of weeks. Never going to stop! What’s funny is I looked back recently to where I started and I loved seeing that progress! @Robbie I did get that shirt when I got home Friday night! Thank you! Glad to be home where I have better control of my diet and excited to do a few more solo work trips soon where I have more control of where I eat as well!

Just a few questions from me: Will this forum go away? Will our access to the videos/materials? How can we stay in touch, if they do? I’ve really appreciated you all. I’ve been super busy at work, but you’ve all provided a lot of motivation for me! Bonus picture: what I’m doing right now!
Where do we go from here? content media

Then to Jasper for this week. There will be some new challenges for me...both in work and food. Fortunately, I’ll have dinner with an old Navy buddy one night. I’m going to spend this week getting rid of the excess carbs I routinely take in at lunch while on the road. Can’t wait to see Chris. It’s been almost 17 years.

I got the results of my Ancestry DNA late last night...and it suggested I have a close family member I didn't know. I left a message for him to call me and he did this morning, just before I went into the office. It turns out he's my half brother. He's much taller, but apparently looks a lot like me and is three years younger. I don't believe my biological father knew him...but I didn't know my biological father that well, either. He was adopted at a young age and had a great family. I'm glad for that. I'm excited to learn more about him. What a crazy way to start this day!

Man, these past two weeks have worn me out! This time two weeks ago I shoveled a foot of snow out of the driveway so I could head to (south) Chicago. I ate well. I didn’t work out well, but I did keep my step count in the 8k-10k range. I got back to St Louis to find that my trip to Kentucky was now a trip to super cold Sioux Falls, SD. I also started to go under the weather...which I fought every day of this past week. I didn‘t work out in Sioux Falls. I didn’t feel well and just wanted to sleep. I ate ok, but not great. I was pitying myself for not feeling well. I knew I hadn’t posted in a while here, but I couldn’t get up the energy to even do that. I was super glad to be home Friday evening. I still spent most of Saturday napping on the couch, but by the evening I felt better. Much better. I even made dinner for the family. Today has been all about a reset. Steps are in. House is clean. Work clothes about to come out of the dryer. Ready to hit the at home workout tomorrow. The good old news is I didnt relapse to the point I gained any weight back. Still 5 pounds under. I got this. We got this. I’m not giving up!

Our 2 year old has had problem sleeping through the night lately. Last night was no exception. My wife went to check on her around 2:30. She heard noises in the basement and asked me to investigate it. I went down with my Maasai warrior club and found that our sump pump was the problem...it was trying to run but couldn’t. A rock had clogged it up and we had a full sump and maybe 1/4 inch of water along parts of the basement floor. I cleared the sump and it ran the rest of he time I was down there. I cleared our belongings that were in the water, and turned on a space heater and dehydrator. I didn’t sleep well as I kept thinking about it. Fortunately, we didn’t lose much...some book type things we probably should have tossed a long time ago. Most everything is ok. Still got my workout in, though! Didn’t want to do it...I’m sore, I’m tired. I’m not feeling it. I have Robbie’s voice in my head telling me I can do it and I just have to keep pushing. We got this. Still have some standing water. My in laws are bringing over a shopvac and I’ll finish up the basement. I’ll then head in to work finally around 3. Very fortunate to work for an awesome boss and company. WE GOT THIS.

I started the show on Hulu I guess a little after it finished. As I was watching, I found myself cheering for Robbie. I related to him a lot. We just finished it today and I signed up not long after that. I was a youth football coach and I felt like I was in pretty good shape, but now I’m over 200 pounds. I got under 200 earlier this year, but I let my travelling for work derail me. It’s not a flattering 200, either. It’s all in my gut. I do some street performing here as a Christmas character. I end up seeing a lot of photos of myself. Anytime I see one with gut, I want to hide in shame. I know we can do this. I want to lose that weight. Not only lose it, I want to never think of it again. I want to be a better husband to my wife. I want to be a better dad to my kids. I want to be healthy to be there for them. I am excited. Let’s do this.
