Gluttony is My Favourite Sin

I've got some weight to drop. Actually I've got a lot of weight to drop. A few years ago I was 20 pounds heavier than I am now, so I know I can drop weight if I work hard enough. I've just got to commit and then do it.

I'm egocentric enough that I can't stomach making a semi-public declaration and then not following through on it. This is why I'm announcing my weight loss plans here ... announcing it means I'll actually have to do it.

I'm gonna drop to 200 pounds (or less) by Jan. 1, 2007. Today I weigh 224. Every now and then I'll update my blog with a new weigh in (at least once a month).

If I don't make it to my goal by Jan. 1, 2007 I expect you to abuse me maniacally. I wanna hear things like "how can you even type this blog with those flabby fingers fried-chicken-face." I'm counting on the callousness of my friends to help me here ... I know you can do it. Don't let me down. Feel free to quote the video below if necessary:

I think it would help if you pasted this pic of Weird Al on your bathroom mirror. Then tell yourself, every morning, I'm not fat, I'm PHAT! Then do some Michael Jackson type dancing around the kitchen every day. (Shannon can teach you). The weight will be off by Halloween! Good luck!

Yeah ... that'd beat eating veggie-everything and getting up at 6am in the 3c heat to bike in the rain ... which is what I've been doing.

Of course if I just cut my head off I'd lose at least 25 pounds just like that!

Hey what's this "PHAT" word? I would never pee in anyone's hat ... you SAers are gross (with your "poo stations" in parks and all) Yeech!

Rob Scott said...

oops ... I mean "poo BINS in parks and all" (I went back and checked the sign on your blog).

Man, I was wondering what the 6:00am noise was with the garage door, which is now like 1 foot from my head. I really didn't think through the location of my bed very well... (I live downstairs from Rob and Stacey, and my room shares one wall in common with the garage - where the bike is stored I assume!!).

I've been excercising inside for the past few days. If you're still hearing a 6 am rumbling noise I think it might be time to lay off on the late night burritos.
