Alright let's make this offical!

Hi - I'm Shawn and I'm a food addict:)

But I'm not letting that define me.

Let start again - I'm a fit and healthy person stuck in the body of an unfit and unhealthy person (yeah I like that better).

Today I'm starting a transformation journey.

My current stats: 232 pounds. Yes I've said out loud. This is not the first time I've weighed this much, but I expect it to be the last. I'll not go through all the diet drama I've been through before now. You're welcome to check my blog archives for that. I'm looking forward now.

First Goal: 195 by 12/12

Yes that's aggressive but I believe it's wholly doable.

The plan - eating for life for now. I need simple, I need the appearance of non restrictive but I also need the structure of a solid 'plan'. Enough rules but not too many. I'm logging my food into fitday (pc version). but not restricting calories intentionally - yet.

Excercise - I keep setting really lofty goals for myself in this department and failing. So I'm torn :|

For now I'm going to take this a week at a time. This week's goals - minimum 3 days of weight training, 3 days running, 2 days swimming.

Simple :)

Expect more to come... hmm what's that? a flicker of hope? God wouldn't that be nice?


  1. Hey Shawn, my name is Cory and I am a food addict as well...

    I don't know if you read it or not, but I just made a blog post about food addiction a couple of days ago. Its a very real thing and a thing that people who DON'T have it can't seem to understand.

    Anyhoo... I'm here for you if you want to talk or rant..

  2. I'm glad to have you around - you were always a great source of inspiration and information for me.
