I am not a doctor, nurse, nurse practitioner, health professional, healthcare agency, therapist, social worker, registered dietitian, nutritionist, or personal trainer. I don’t play any of these on TV.

Hell, I’m not even on TV, for that matter.

I am merely someone who lost upwards of 100 pounds, and then some. The information contained in this blog is for informational and entertainment purposes only, and is therefore not intended (and should never be intended) to serve as a substitute for medical and/or health advice.

The aim (or purpose) of this blog is to document my own experiences after losing weight, where I started, the long and drawn-out process, what I’ve learned, discuss and/or review products and services I’ve come to know and love, and believe will benefit you, the reader, and maybe even entertain you along the way.

All content is posted in good faith, and considered accurate as of the date of its’ posting. This blog will contain sponsored posts, which will be clearly identified at the start, per FTC guidelines. However, I will always provide my opinions with honesty and transparency.

I do not endorse or promote any one specific diet. Any mention of specific diets does not equal endorsement, and should not be taken as such. What ended up working for me may not work for you, and what worked for you may not work for me. Individual caloric requirements and health conditions differ from person to person (aka, your mileage will vary). Any recipes or diet approaches discussed are not medically prescribed, and should also not be interpreted as such.

If you are in a place where you need guidance on where to start your own “mission within,” so to speak, to meet your weight goals, regardless of what those look like for you, I strongly encourage you to meet with a professional to come up with a plan tailored to your specific circumstances, and if need be, seek out a second (or even third!) opinion.

None of the content or products discussed in this blog should be used to treat, diagnose, cure, or prevent any disease or condition.

All content on this blog is intended for adults aged 18 and over and/or the age of majority in your municipality. This blog is not intended for use by minors. In other words, this website isn’t for kids. If you are under the age of 18 or the age of majority in your municipality, stop reading this, go play Roblox or Animal Crossing, go hit up the skate park, whatever.

Come back when you’re older. I promise, this blog will still be here. We’ll kick it then. Deal? In the meantime, go be a kid. You’ll be grown soon enough as it is w/o the help.

I reserve the right to delete, move, or change this blog’s content without notice. I reserve the right to shift this blog’s focus, shut it down, sell it, or change the terms and conditions at my sole discretion.

EDIT 3-15-2022: This blog is in no way, shape, or form affiliated with the rehab center website with a coincidentally similar-sounding name. I have never heard of this company up until the date of this addendum, nor did it show up in any searches as of the date I purchased the domain name and set up this blog. I don’t know the people associated with this company from Adam or Eve, and vice versa. This blog does not have an affiliation with this agency, and it never will. The only commonality is the “Mission Within” name, with a different generic top-level domain name. As I have no personal knowledge or experience with this company, I do not (and cannot) endorse their business model, or their services rendered.

That being said, if mental health is something you need help with, know that I’m truly sorry that you’re going through this. I mean it! I encourage you to seek professional help with your care providers, and make arrangements for a treatment plan based on your own circumstances and needs. If they won’t listen, then you pull up stakes and find someone who will. If professional help isn’t an option for whatever reason right now, I encourage you to reach out to the Crisis Text Line in the meantime.
