The FATTY Returns!!!

If you’re new to our blog, then you might wonder why it’s called Healthy Professionals. After all, most of the time there’s only one new post here every week – and it’s a video about tea?!

Well, the fact is, my wife and I originally started this blog as motivation to lose weight – seen here in “DAY 1 – Low-Carb Pizza, Mile Run, and Fatty Photos!!!” Since my wife is an accountant, and I’m a taxman; we thought that Healthy Professionals was an appropriate name for our blog. Perhaps other fat office workers around the world would even be motivated by us? 😛

We figured that we’d start by putting some embarrassing pictures on the internet so that there would be no turning back. We would have to lose weight or be eternally ashamed by the fact that our fatty pictures on the internet are how we actually look in real life.

Thankfully, I'm not currently THIS fat, but close.

For months, we blogged every day – listing our calories eaten, calories burned, recipes, items eaten, and it worked! Both Lisa and I got down to a weight that we were comfortable with. We didn’t follow through with our exercise plans after doing so, but mission accomplished nonetheless. The weight was gone.

Anyway, the point of this story is that I’m getting fat again. 😦 Lisa and I recently went through a really crazy move from our old apartment, and now we’re alternating between the empty homes of relatives due to a disagreement with our previous landlord. Unfortunately, I’ve been using all of the extra stress as an excuse to eat and drink whatever I want (mainly case after case of Bud Light). Well, it needs to stop, and I’m going to use this blog to lose weight just like we did the first time around. The only difference being that Lisa won’t be dieting with me this time, because she’s not a fatty like me right now! 🙂 So, expect to read more diet related blogs in you future! Day 1 – “Brian’s switches to vodka?” That sounds like a painless change to start with. 😉


Since I’m a pretty talented cook, we had originally planned to post cooking videos here. However, I’m both the cameraman and the cook, and I can’t do both at once – so The Tea Show was born: “The Tea Show, Episode 1, Young Hyson Chinese Green”


Day 41 – Pasta again, but WAY better pasta!

We had Doug Di Vita’s famous pasta sauce. You can read about it in one of our previous blogs:

It’s about 1000 calories a plate, but you get to eat lots of sausage! 🙂

We’ll probably weigh-in some time over the weekend and see if we’ve made any progress since the last time we weighed-in.

Also, brand new string of tea shows coming soon! The first one featuring Obubu Tea from Kyoto, Japan!
