Last week I didn't quit. I finished a process of quitting that I started about three weeks prior. (The Past: 195 by 5.29!! and previous) I started making excuses in my head: "I may not make it", "More than two pounds a week is no... Read more

I have a ritual where I go to the library and pick out 1 or 2 diet books. I joke with the librarian that said diets, "can't POSSIBLY fail". They're all kind of the same(the diet books not the librarians). They tell me that I can eat whatever ... Read more

As many of you know, I've been struggling with my goal of 195 by 5.29. I'm extremely happy with my weight and control over my eating (though it's been a bit of a rough week). There is a harsh reality that I face. I'm probably not going to... Read more

I remember it as if it was yesterday. My parents letting me know that Santa Claus didn't really exist. I ran into the adjoining room and cried and cried and cried. My mom made a batch of my favorite brownies while my dad told me how much he l... Read more

So a few months ago, I bought a new t-shirt with a picture of a man in a karate gee that says "I've got a Black Belt in Crazy". The shirt might as well have said "Trent, you will buy me because you are a weirdo". I also saw a shirt at the ... Read more

Throughout the mid to late 00's, I was blessed in a very dark macabre way. I've seen quite a few people (friends, acquaintances, family and co-workers) fall to problems stemming from unhealthy living. A relative of mine can't raise his arm... Read more
