My name is Jack, and I've been blogging just about every day for almost three-and-a-half years. If you stacked my blog posts on top of one another, they would reach 1/245,000,000th of the way to the moon!
When I began, I was tipping the scales at or around 300 pounds. Maybe you weigh a lot more than that and maybe you don't weigh anything near that, but for me that was the sh*t-your-pants mark. That's when I got nervous... and serious...
I proceeded to lose around 90 pounds, maintained for a year and then found myself doing something I call "gaintaining". I was still working out and trying to eat right, but I was slipping. I'm not where I want to be right now, but I haven't given up on myself.
I goof off on this site a lot because, let's face it: what's there to say? I mean, really? We know what we need to do. We will do it or we won't.
Some days I do it. Some days I don't.
But I'm still here.
And you are, too.
That's gotta count for something.
If you'd like, you can connect with me on Twitter or Facebook or just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm also on LinkedIn for some strange reason or other and post from time to time on Pinterest (though I seem to have gotten dispinterested recently). Note, my eHarmony profile has been deleted due to the fact that the heavy traffic it was generating kept crashing the site's servers. Finally, I'll be doing a little something-something at Fitbloggin' next month; if you're going, please don't come up to me and ask me to pay you back the money I borrowed; that makes you look so, so greedy.
THE DAILY SCALEY
After a post like this, you really think I'd have weighed
myself today instead of throwing up another cute baby animal pic.
