While this is a journey that is already in progress, this will be the record of my endeavors.
My name is Joe and I’ve lived in the Phoenix are for about a year and a half. There’s so much to see and do in this area and it is about time that I become proactive in living my life to the fullest.
This blog will document my endeavors in losing weight and exploring my somewhat-new home.
When I moved to Phoenix, I was about 360 pounds. The reason for the move was simple. It was to start my life over. I packed my bags, left my school, and started fresh in Arizona.
After placing myself on a strict diet (utilized Slim Fast for the first part of it), the pounds started to come off! After a bit, i picked up some other activities. Work out video games, swimming, gym time, hiking, and running. I love trying new things! As I kept trying new things, I kept getting smaller.
As of November 2012, I am now 223 pounds. It isn’t my lightest since I started, but I’m now on the final push to break 200.
Here’s the before and current pictures.
