We change ourselves so that we might learn to grow, and become who we were meant to be, not just who we think we ought to be.

Full Graph on my story, but goddamn, I feel good! 408 days after I started my journey, and I'm not done yet! #weightloss #achievementunlocked #185lbs #accomplishment #myfitnesspal #caloriecounter #yas

Visual representation of my #2017. Dirty #glasses, a popped pimple, a tattered #beard, a bunch of nose hair, and a slightly opened gob. Nobody gets out alive in this life. Some years are rougher than others, much like this one was. But they're a chance to #grow, to #change, and become more of who you are meant to be. There is always #hope for a brighter tomorrow, because life goes on. You can either roll with the punches, or let life beat you down. I choose to roll. I hope you all have a safe, happy, and healthy #newyearseve! Bring on #2018! (And don't worry, I'm cleaning myself up in a little while)

I have no justification for this #selfie. I just wanted to stroke my ego a little bit... Maybe a lot.

My life is sort of coming together and falling apart at the same time, but I thought I looked good today, so I took a #selfie to capture the moment. I think I got lucky with this one because I feel like it's 🔥.

Here's a graph of where I'm currently at on my #weightloss journey via #myfitnesspal.

I started using the app on February 17th at 217 pounds and haven't missed a day since (248 day streak), making this extremely accurate. Previously, I had lost 30 lbs on my own in about 2 1/2/3 months through cutting out gluten, red meat, most cheeses, and soda from my diet, instead eating tons of fish, chicken (the animal and its eggs), veggies, and counting my calories all the while. At my most consistent, I was eating 1,600 calories a day, and burning about 300 twice a week from walking. These last two months, I've taken a break from dieting because I lost over 58 pounds in total in less than 10 months, hovering around 190 from 248. For perspective, at my heaviest probably around 2012/2013, I weighed close to 280. Because of the massive shock to my system, I thought it wise to indulge myself in order to keep me feeling like I wasn't eating enough, or enjoying what I was eating, because as much as I love kale, it honestly tastes like shit half the time.

Anyway, I jumped back on the train this last week, and I'm already down a pound (189). My goal is only to lose 4 more, but I may go further if I deem it necessary. My biggest problem right now is not being physically active, nor do I really have the money to spend to afford a #gym membership. Hopefully once the new year begins, I will be able to get some genuine exercise in, and completely reshape my body into how I see it in my head, and I can look sort of how I imagine myself to be by the time my 30th birthday rolls around next year. Yes, I am older than I look, and f*ck you, I refuse to grow up.

Since it's that time of year again, this #TBT I'd like to hop to the WeHo Carnaval in 2010. Got into some shenanigans with a few colleagues, and saw about 20 people dressed as Jesus, my friend included. Here's Baby-me dressed as Master Shake with Megaman. One of my favorite pictures I've ever had taken of me. Never found out who was behind the mask though.

We are an infinite universe unto ourselves, filled with darkness and radiance, love and hate, pride and regret. Pray for a brighter tomorrow, but live in the light of the moment.

Edit: This didn't post my original post, but since I can make changes, here's what I originally wrote:

We are not just one dimension. We are many. We love, we hate, we give, we receive, we are born into this, we live through our moment in history, and then we become dust... A photograph of a memory of a point in time, locked forever in place, and unchanging. We are the infinity that is beyond reach, our souls intertwined in all facets of the universe, no matter how small that universe sometimes feels. But it is ours to live in, ours to love, and ours to change if we so choose to.

I've recently hit a rough patch in my life. Things are not going as well as I'd originally planned, and I sometimes feel like putting myself out there will only feed the inner-voice of ridicule in my head due to the possibility of rejection. When I look in the mirror, I sometimes see the obese 13 year old I once was in place of 29 year old man staring back at me. Both are full of regrets from the mistakes they made, and the things they said, but they cannot change the past, nor the opinions of those whose lives he touched.

I am not perfect, but I'm trying the best I can to be the best I can. Without my flaws, who am I really? Who is anyone? Everyone holds a darkness inside of them, whether they admit to it or not. I choose to embrace mine like I embrace my light because one can cannot exist without the other. With each passing day, that idea has been reinforced, and built upon, laying the groundwork for what is yet to come.

I hope for a better tomorrow. I hope for a bright future for myself, and those I love, and to grow more as a person with each passing day. Most of all, I hope that those that come to know me as I am now will see that I want nothing from them except their acceptance. That is no easy thing to ask for, but dammit if I don't at least make the attempt to try.

Ladies, don't settle for a man who can't organize or fold his own clothes, because they won't do the same for you.

Progress Report. Officially down to about 190! That's 58 lbs in total in less than 9 months! Only 5 more pounds until I hit my next weightloss goal. The sky's the limit after that!

Research for my next rewrite. Probably not going to watch all of these, but I want to use them as reference points for the tone I'm trying to set.

If half my face looks this good today, the other half must be a friggin' mess.

#Dunkirk in #70MM was excellent, even though the first half is a bit uneven. But hey, at least I got this kick-ass #hat!
