April 16th Workout: Under This Big Jelly Keg Belly I'm Building An Iron Core

It's Thursday, April 16th and I have a confession to make. I said I wasn't going to weigh myself until the end of the week but I got jittery and couldn't contain myself. I've gotten addicted to looking at that number and seeing if I've made any progress and holy shit was I excited. I'm proud to announce I weighed in this morning before my workout at 317 pounds and have officially lost 14 pounds since I've started this lifestyle change. To me its more than just a diet and exercise routine. It's principally changing the way I live my life. I lived such a horrific and lazy lifestyle in the past that I always knew one day I would man up and make a change but I just didn't know when. I'm so fucking glad that time was now because I think this is one of the proudest I've ever been on myself. I may play a character that's very boastful and over confident on camera sometimes and I think there is a piece of that in me, but at my core I'm very hard on myself and don't like giving myself credit. At the end of the day the only person you have to blame for being overweight is yourself. Do some people have better metabolisms than others? 100%. But you're the captain of your own ship. You steer the direction it goes in. I just got sick and tired of steering my ship dead into an iceberg of long term health problems and always feeling like a fat slob. I wanna have kids one day and be there for them for a long time. I wanna be able to go out and play pick up basketball with my friends and not be the fat fuck who is wheezing up and down the court after two minutes. I'll never be a hardo or overly harsh on anyone who's struggling with their weight or eats like shit everyday and doesn't work out. I was that guy for WAY too long to point any fingers. Plus, I know how hard it is. This ain't my first rodeo trying to lose weight. I've tried and failed multiple times before and there is a ton of work that needs to be done to call myself a success story. It's not about where I'm at in two weeks or two months. Where I am in two years, five years, 10 years and 20 years, that's what matters. My honest belief is that true change has to come from within. Kind of similar to someone with a substance abuse problem. I genuinely believe it takes you looking yourself in the mirror and saying "I want better for myself, and I'm ready to do what it takes to make that happen." You have to want it for yourself. Only then can you defeat your inner demons. I want to be on this earth for as many years as I possibly can. If I stick with what I'm doing now, that's gonna make it possible. It's all up to me/you. MAKE IT HAPPEN. Here's todays workout:
