My Blog Has Moved

Well folks, I've finally done it. I've switched to WordPress and my blog is now on my own domain. So say good-bye to Blogger and good-bye to the bling. But don't be sad. Life is full of change. Change is a good thing. It keeps us on our toes. It challanges us and makes us stronger. And as your next President... oops, I got a little speechy there, didn't I?

Anyway, check me out at:

I'll look for you there.

Fatty Fatty Two-By-Four...

I know I have been overeating. I know that I have been substituting food for smoking. I know that I have been chowing down like a starving, wild animal after I have just a few drinks. I know that my pants are getting so tight that the are leaving tread-marks around my waist so deep that you could run a hot wheels race on them. I knew all this and still got up the nerve to step on the scale today.

Before I got on the scale, I made all those lame promises you make to yourself in the hopes that what you see won’t be as bad as you think it is. No more binge eating…no drinks except during the weekend…no take-out… and so on and so on, as IF it really would magically make the weight gain not be so bad. Unfortunately, it didn’t work this time.

I now weigh 187 lbs. That is 17 lbs heavier than I was the week before I stopped smoking. I’d throw myself off a bridge except I’m afraid I'd just bounce. Things really have gotten out of hand. It’s been 5 years--yes that’s right, 5 years--since I weighed that much. I can’t let this pattern continue. I won't go back to being huge.

If you look on my side bar, you’ll see a new widget, Big Tub o' Lard. Every day I will post my weight for all the world to see. Watch while I struggle, like a blob fish out of water, as I attempt to return to my former, less flabby state. I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again. So cheer me on when my weight starts dropping and chastise me if it starts to climb. Trust me, I can take it. I’ve got a thick coating, for now anyway.

Dude, if I lost 17 pounds I'd be at where you are now--187.

As someone that's dropped 93 pounds over the last few years, I say this is so possible it's almost not worth thinking about.

Eat less, move more. It's as simple as that! You'll be fine!

Preston, you picked me up when I was down. Remember, we are here for you. You can do it, as Diana says. Your commitment shows in your post, leaving yourself to the fate of the comments of others. Stay strong - you are a good soul. And if you need a laugh, check out shoeboxes Small Paul - a laugh for all of us star wars geeks.
