Thanksgiving is tomorrow… I’d really hoped that I’d be down under 230 at this point, but if there is any good news it’s that I seem to be “stable” at around 234 / 235.  While this certainly isn’t where I want to be, it’s better than the 238 or so that I was hovering around Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on 234.0 – So Much For Losing 10 Pounds Before The Holidays

Don’t think I’ve mentioned it, but Amanda’s starting to freak me out a bit when she’s looking at my size.  A couple of weekends back, we went to a wedding and trying to get my neck into a shirt & tie is always a treat.  She’s saying (and she would know) that my neck is Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on 234.0 – That’s More Like It

It’s been forever and a day since I posted here… and a lot has happened in the meantime.  I got laid off in December which is never a good thing.  I won’t go into it here… suffice to say the circumstances sucked, I’m still owed money, and I’m bitter about it.  But I digress. During my time off (I Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on 225.5 – It’s Been A Long Time

A month ago I made a huge change in my life… I decided that it was time to lose some weight and get much healthier.  At the time I was eating a bunch of garbage, drinking too much beer and doing essentially nothing physically (other than chasing my kids around).  Since then I’ve been to Continue reading “”

I have yet to miss a day at the gym since I made this change (weekday that is).  This is part of my day. I’ve been doing 30 minutes on the bike/elliptical and then 20-30 on the other.  I did have one day where I did a straight hour on the elliptical and while it Continue reading “”

Went to the gym for the 4th time this week this AM.  This is now my routine.  It’s a part of my day.  For years I’ve been struggling with my weight and it’s FINALLY time to do something about it. I’m feeling good but I’m worried that the weight loss that I’m seeing isn’t going Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on 233 – Down 4.5

I’m fat… and I hate it.  I woke up this morning after my Steeler’s won their 6th world championship and decided to make a change.  I headed to the gym and rode the bike for a half hour and then did another 15 minutes on the eliptical machine.  I’m going to try and make this Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on Another “First Day” – 237.5

Well no surprise but the scale was not kind this AM. So of course what do I do? I stop at McDonald’s on the way into work. It’s amazing how STUPID I am. As I’m sitting in the drive through I’m telling myself that I shouldn’t be there… but like an addict there I am. Continue reading “”

Well, I finally got on the scale to find a lower number today which felt DAMN good… haven’t been to the pool or the gym in a couple of days and I really need to get there, but I’m super busy today so it’s not going to be today.  Will have to try and get Continue reading “”
