Hi! I’m Stephen from Birmingham, Alabama. In February 2009, at my highest weight of 632 pounds, I started WhoAteMyBlog? to help keep me accountable with my health and wellness journey and to motivate others to reach their goals. Since then, I’ve had many highs and lows, but have still managed to lose a lot of weight (Over 260 lbs). I am on Twitter and Facebook very often. <<< Be sure to follow me. :) Feel free to make yourself at home and browse around.Receive WhoAteMyBlog? posts via email.

Day 38: Labor Day

by Stephen Vinson on September 1, 2014

in Daily Posts

OH WATERMELON. WHY YOU GOTTA BE SO GOOOOOOOOD? Ha ha… I purposefully stay away from watermelon. Today, I got one because it’s labor day. I don’t feel guilty about it. I enjoyed the holiday and even had a steak at lunch. I can’t remember the last time I cooked a steak at home or ate one in Birmingham. No regrets. No guilt. I’m counting today’s consumption as a splurge, not a binge. I might be off base, but I can live with that. Today.

Tomorrow I’ll be back to my usual grub.

I felt better today. The loopiness was gone today because I stopped taking lortabs on Thursday afternoon. I’m adding lortabs to the short list of meds that I can’t take. If I find that something leads me to binging, I stop it. I didn’t have the urge to binge today. To get a little more nutrition […]

I’m facing issues when they arise, because they inevitably will. It feels good. Today was good. I continue to look forward to physical therapy starting Friday. I can’t wait to […]
