I Feel Like LESS of a Man!

Posted: July 1, 2011 in Weekly Weigh-In


I’ve been waiting six months for this day. I’ve been patient…okay, I admit that I’ve been frustrated at times but frustration doesn’t set me back anymore and make me quit. It makes me push myself harder to get to the goal I’ve set. If you’re reading this today, please leave a comment and let me know who stopped by to share in my good news.

I Win, Green-Man!!!

I was issued a challenge a few months back. My friend, Matt, wanted to see who could get to the double zeros first. At the start, he was 232 pounds and I was 333 pounds. I went one more step and said that it should be the first one who gets their weight UNDER the double zeros. This challenge really pushed me. There’s no prize. No bragging because, in the end, Matt still has me beat by 70-something pounds (watch out, Greens! I’m coming for you!). The only thing the winner gets is satisfaction of being pushed toward their personal goal. Today, I’m satisfied! So, here’s the big announcement…well, it happened yesterday for a select few since I couldn’t contain my excitement. I woke up yesterday morning and weighed in at 299.8 but I wanted to be sure I didn’t fluctuate back up this morning. I’m pleased to announce that I did not. The weekly weigh-in picture below is from this morning and I’m 6 ounces less than yesterday!

Weekly Weigh-In

It happened!!! After six months and 89 pounds, I’ve reached my first goal!


I’m weighing in this morning at:


I’m so pleased. I really feel a weight off my shoulders (pun intended). I’ve worked hard to get to this first goal and I feel a great sense of accomplishment. I’ve gone ahead and lined up my…

Future Goals

I don’t want them to be big goals. I’m nine pounds away from losing 100 pounds since starting this in October 2010. 100 pounds isn’t a goal for me. It’s nice to shed that amount but I want my goals smaller. My next goal will be a 20-pound loss that should bring me under 280 pounds. After that, it’s a goal of a 30-pound loss that will put me under 250 pounds.

Stay with me. Like my man, Francis, said…

Talk to you later!
