"Say, Are You Losing Weight?"

Fifteen pounds down and you’re asking yourself, “Why isn’t everybody jumping up and down and celebrating this awe-inspiring accomplishment?

Twenty pounds down and you’re asking yourself, “Is everyone I know blind, stupid or both not to notice this stunningly spectacular achievement?”

Twenty-five pounds down, and you’re asking yourself, “Is there some sort of sinister covert conspiracy at work where everyone has agreed not to say anything about this tremendously ttriumphant triumph?”

Thirty pounds down, and you’re asking yourself, “Really? I mean, really?”

Thirty-five pounds down and somebody offhandedly remarks, “Say, are you losing weight, Jack?”

“Maybe a little,” I reply. “I don’t pay much attention to it.”


Last week’s weight: 243.6 lbs
This week’s weight: 241.5 lbs
Loss:  1.9 lbs

Total loss since re-start: 35.1 lbs
