Hello, I’m Jacob. This is going to be my very first blog, my first blog post, and the beginning of an important journey in my life.
I should start out by telling you how this came to be.. I am feeling overwhelmed with the way things are for me currently. I am not exactly happy with my situation right now, and I’m looking to fix that. The best way I know to do that is by sharing my journey, and hoping for support from you guys!
There are thousands of blogs to check out on this site and others, so I’m sure you’re wondering, why should I bother reading and following your blog, Jacob? What makes you so special?
Nothing. And that’s the reason I have.
I would not consider myself exceptional at any one area. I’m a student in accounting, a part-time employee working my way through college with my fiance. I am a hard working guy, but I slip up sometimes. My biggest weakness: My health.
Recently, I attempted to reach out to MyFitnessPal to begin my journey, and I joined their community. I was doing well for a month or so, which you’ll discover in future posts, and one of my friends on MFP suggested I start a blog, so people can follow my journey and hopefully get behind and be inspired by my journey.
I started out as a 6’0″ male weighing 326 pounds. I worked my way down to 299.6, and I stopped. I am hovering around 300-305 now, not gaining much of my weight back, but my progress has come to a halt.
The purpose of my blog is just that.. I’m ready to continue my journey, and explore even more platforms to keep myself ahead, motivated, and healthy. For the sake of my friends, family, and to prove to myself that I’m not a piece of shit.
Thanks for reading my introduction, and I’m excited to get started with telling my story!
