…..so freakin' bad!!!


Aloha one and all.  My name is Pono.  I am 6’5 and very overweight as you can see from the pictures.  I am 35 years old and feel scared and the urgency to get into good physical health and stay there for the remainder of my life.  My weight scares me daily, and sometimes at night I can’t sleep because I feel my sleep apnea will cause me to have a heart attack or stop breathing and not wake up.  My greatest fear is I will leave my children too young and will not see them grow up into amazing people who are kind and honest and hardworking.  My health scares the living HELL out of me, but leaving my family because of my health scares me more.  I was a picture of perfect health in my 20s.  I began working out with weights when I was 22 and really grew to love it.  I learned all the correct techniques of lifting from my neighbor who lived across the street from us.  He incorporated bodybuilding and powerlifting and had been doing it for many years.  I ran three to four miles daily and would either lift more or run more depending on what I felt like that particular day.  I ended up joining 24 Fitness near my home and really took my conditioning and health to another level.  I have not touched a weight in many years nor have I been diligent in playing any sports.  I stopped doing all that and just focused on working and going to school and dealing with the stresses of life through the many delicacies of life.  So now, I am beginning to understand meaningless eating and eating because of true hunger and not boredom or stress.  I hope my blog will allow me to express my feelings as I never have been able to before and be a sort of self-talk therapy for myself.  I want to share my daily thoughts with you and hope that something I may say, do, or snap a pic of may inspire you to do better on your weight loss goals.  It is also my desire to give you current and factual information through links, pictures and however else I may educate you on subjects such as Asthma, Diabetes and food and workout tips.  My name is Pono and I want to be a skinnyaire……….

  1. Glad to meet you! Know that I will be thinking of you and am in support of your efforts. You have visited my site so I know that perhaps you have read my philosophy. Read the article on NEAT. It is very important to understand that doing some daily is more effective than trying to do excessive amounts of exercise occasionally.
    Self-discipline is born from being Consistent.
    I look forward to reading about your progress.
    You have the right mindset…we must first help ourselves. And as parents we are role models for our children.
    Take Care!

    • Thank you for your comment. I truly appreciate it. I will be reading NEAT and more of your blog. I absolutely agree with your philosophy that doing some daily is most important. I am striving for consistency daily. Thank you for your blog. I have found it to be very informative and very refreshing to read. I was impressed with your profile pic and had to show my wife who also was amazed at your tone and definition. Great job! I will be linking to your blog because I really like the videos your nephew does to show the exercises. They are perfect for some of the people that are following my blog. Thanks and take care!
