You may or may not have seen my About Me page, but I wanted to post a little about me blurb too. So my name is Ian and I work as a security officer but I also freelance and love writing. That is why I thought of starting this website would be a great idea to help fuel my weight loss goals. When planning this web site I weighed 188.5 lbs, by the time I got all of the registration issues taken care of and content started I already had dropped 3.1 lbs to 185.4. At the time of posting this I am down 4 lbs. My end goal is 125 lbs and I am already 5% there. The featured image for me in this post is me between 185.4 and 184.5 lbs at a weekend airsoft event.
I also miss the outdoor activities that I used to have the time to do when I went to school, camping, hiking, geocaching, and more. So I plan to post about my various adventures and let you enjoy them along with me. Just maybe I will be motivated to lose the other 57 lbs.
The idea for this blog came from the idea that I enjoy writing. I am a freelance writer and work gigs on Fiverr.com. I also have a blog/website for my writing both professional and creative, http://iandscofield.com. I figured what better way is there than to motivate my weight loss with writing.
In case you were wondering what my About Me page says here you go:
Hello and my name is Ian! Many of you might be wondering who I am after stumbling upon my website. I am just an average person who has decided to take a stand against food and lose weight but I wanted to make it public to help fuel my weight loss goals. At the start of planning this blog I weighed 188.5 lbs, before even opening the blog to the public I was down to 185.4 pounds. That is a 3.1 lbs drop and that is roughly 5% of my goal of losing just over 60 lbs. I also hope that my stories help to inspire those who are having trouble losing weight to start their own path.
A little more in depth I am a security officer and most of my days at work I walk a lot. I started to gain weight initially when I was in college but then lost over 30 lbs. Once I started working in grocery stores and drug stores though I was quick to put the weight back on. Having 30 minutes or less on most days for lunch didn’t help that. My goal in life is to get into a police department or end up in another field that I enjoy. To get into a police department though you need to be in tip-top shape this is my biggest motivation behind losing weight. I also want to lose weight simply so it is easier to find clothes.
