It Is Entirely Possible That I Am, Indeed, The Man


Weekly weigh-in: 252.1
Loss: 6.5 lbs
Total loss: 39.4 lbs.
Emotion: Zestful

After last week’s unsatisfactory gain, I learned some important lessons:

  • Don’t order the Salt-Slathered Salty Veggie Fajitas with Extra Salt the night before a weigh-in
  • “Ah, what the hell?” are the four worst words you can utter in a restaurant setting
  • Even though there’s an ever-so slight chill in my living room in the early morning, there’s no need to weigh in wearing a heavy winter parka and fur boots

I really consider this week’s rocking of the scale a two-week victory, because I was rock-solid for the vast majority of the weight-gain week and super rock-solid the following week. Plus, I got a haircut, which was just enough to put me over the top.

There’s nothing easy about this journey we’re all undertaking, but when you do right and you see results, there’s nothing more satisfying.

  9. You are so right - when we put in the effort and we see the results, it's so worth it! Congratulations on the loss!

  10. *high five* That's an incredible weight loss. My first child did not weight that much when she was born. Whatever you are doing, you're doing it right. Just keep it up.

    It is a long journey but it is a great feeling to watch that scale show smaller and smaller numbers. :)

    Happy for you, man. You're getting healthy which is not good only for you but your whole sh*tty family. LOL ;-)You know I mean that in the nicest way possible.

  11. I'm going to just go ahead and make it official: I hereby declare Jack Sh*t, Gettin' Fit THE MAN!

    That is amazing! Awesome job. It feels so good when you go to sleep at night knowing that you're doing everything you can to get the results you want---then when it shows on the scale it just completes that amazing feeling.

    You're on the way to a wonderful success story. You're such a wonderfully creative inspiration!

    Thanks,

  16. I hate you. Really, really hate you. In a whiny it's-not-fair kind of way. You're such a loser. A really, really big loser. Damnit - except you are this week, because as somebody pointed out you've lost the weight of a small baby. Yep, I hate you.

    Regards,

    Her high and mighty royal majesty.

    (Slight pre-weigh in nerves maybe affecting the objectiveness / mental balance of the commenter - please don't blame her - it's not her fault).

    I still hate you though :o)

  17. Come to think of it, I think I was carrying a small baby last week when I weighed in (got to remember to empty my pockets before getting on scale).

  18. That's like an average sized infant you lost. Congratulations, you birthed a 'fat baby'!

  32. So far I've learned when I work the plan, the plan works and I lose. I know this but yet I don't heed my own words.
