The Story of Mike, My Fight For Lilly & My Defective Mind.

Health & Weight Battle 

I am currently 445 pounds. As of 1/23/18

My blood presser is 130 / 78. As of my doctors appointment 1/23/18

I am currently diagnosed from my PCP’s office with:

  • Migraines
  • Morbid obesity
  • sleep issues
  • High Blood Pressure

An old picture from the last diet.

My goal is 180 pounds. The lowest I have been in the last 5 years is 220 ish pounds.

My weight is directly affected by my mental health because I am at a loss at a lot of things. Like I do not feel comfortable being outside of my house by my self. See more here

  • 5/29/18 @ pop was 458. So I am down from 475 last time.
  • 1/23/18 Seeen my pcp about blood presser and back. I was weight and came in at 445.
  • 12/13/17 weighted myself on my scale and it said 420ish pounds.
  • 11/14/17 Seen Seen my PCP (Dr Kusma) for a follow up to my ER trip on Sunday. He thinks my blood pressure is a big problem now. And he also wrote me a note to be off work for the next 7 days.
    • My weight 433 pounds
    • Resting heart rate 104
  • 10/29/17 Weight myself on my home scale and it said 425
  • 10/12/17 Weight myself on my home scale and it said 432.something. It is not an official weight because my scale could be off but I have lost weight.
  • 9/20/17 Seen my PCP (Dr Kusma) for my headaches. He thinks its Migraines. He prescribed me Sumatriptan Tab 100mg.
    • My blood presser was 132 / 78.
    • My weight was 441 pounds.
    • Resting hart rate 84/min
    • Body mass 61.51
  • 6/26/17 – Today my weight dropped below what my scale can weight and instead getting an error like I have been all year it said 442. So now I can start weighting myself again and tracking the progress.
  • 4/11/17 Because of my laziness and the Reseridone and other mental health medications my weight has gone up to 515pound. I really need to start changing things or this will kill me.
  • 2/27/17 Sorry I don’t update this like I should. My weight is around 475 pounds but my new medications don’t make me feel hungry or they just make me feel full I don’t know which but I like this feeling.
  • 1/27/17 I went to the doctor and they weight me at 455 pounds.
  • Update: 9/26 My weight has gone up. I weighted myself at rite aid on 9/24 I think was the date and I gained 5 pounds back. I have been emotionally eating because of the pain, stress and anxiety of late. and today all I want to do is dive head first into a bag of m&Ms or recesses cups.
  • Update: 9/14 I current weight 430 pounds.(Via Rite Aid machine)

More Coming soon….

This is still a work in progress, and will all-ways be update……..

“The government is not your nanny; they’re your dealer. And they’ve subsidized illness in this country. They have to, there’s too much money in it.
