My journey to fix myself

Roughly 18 years ago I was diagnosed bi-polar 2 (non-severe version of bi-poplar lol) and put on medication. This began my nightmare with big pharma. After I stopped my own hair loss by discontinuing Depakote, something they insisted wasn't a thing that was later unveiled to be a thing, I had gained roughly 35lbs on that med, putting me at ~270. Then I started Abilify. What a treat. I eventually ballooned to 354lbs before dieting for the first time in my life.

At age 29, I decided to pursue college football again. The coach told me to get below 300lbs or I couldn't play. And in college, there is no negotiating; I had to get it done. So, I discontinued the Abilify for a brief time and dropped major weight by working out 2.5 hours a day, every day. One of the proudest days of my life was when I weighed in on the first day of camp at 297lbs. By the time I finished playing that year I had dropped to 278lbs.

Then life happened and I got back on the Abilify. Long story short, in 20, I went into the<b> doctor </font></b>office and weighed in at 4lbs. I was mortified. There was only one tune ringing in my ear since, "there are no old fat people." So, I talked with the wife and she agreed to support me. I stopped the Abilify and have been maintaining with marijuana and operating in life just fine ever since.

Fast forward to May 2021 and I stumble across an article that explains the company knew the medication caused severe weight gain and other harmful symptoms. Also, my state appointed psychiatrist was accepting a fortune in payouts from their reps every year for handing out samples. Who knew? Regardless, it was up to me to again fix this. So, I decided to diet for the second time in my life.

Over the last 4 years, I've been able to lose ~32lbs; I now weighed 385lbs. I got a gym membership and recently started working out with results. Then I heard about this Nutrisystem meal plan and how well it worked for one of the guys on the Stern show. I was able to watch this guy lose ~60lbs in the last 6 months and decided to give it a go myself. This is where the true journey back to being right begins.

I weighed in at 377lbs on 9/21/21, the day I began the diet and exercise program. Here we're going to monitor my progress.
