Here Goes Nuttin....


To prepare myself for next summer, I let this one get away. I started Weight Watchers yesterday on a 17 week journey. Tipped the scales at 292 lbs. Yikes. I've tried doing this on my own and haven't accomplished much, so with a co-worker joining me, he tipped the scales at 319, I now have an accountability partner and someone I can talk to when the tiger in my tank starts growling.

I also have just purchased a Total Gym, so this time next year, I may be back to my fighting weight and strength. I'm hoping to go from a keg to a 12 pack. Maybe if I really work at it I make it to a six pack.

So far today, one muffin. I imagine that lunch will come early today.

Goal: 2 lbs a week, that would be that would be 34 lbs over the 17 week period. I'd be happy with 20 lbs. Total goal, to get back to my high school weight of 180 lbs and size 34 pants. That may never happen, but this I know, I will be in better shape than I have been since my mid 20's, and that's what this journey is all about.
By the way, that's not me in the picture. I'd post a before picture of me but I know you may be reading this over breakfast or lunch and I don't want to spoil your appetite.

And you don't think the picture you did post is unappetizing!!!

Good luck with your challenge, my Walk man.
