I’m not being lazy

December 24, 2006

I am actually working on getting a new site setup on a new as-of-yet undecided domain. I’ll let everyone know where I’ve moved to once I get the site up and running. Hopefully within the month.

On a side note, I’ve finally accomplished one of my longest sought after, most failed at goal: to not bite my fingernails/fingers. For anyone who knows me, this was by far the most difficult habit for me to overcome and I’m extremely glad and proud that I finally pulled it off. Hopefully, it’ll be a permanent thing.

For those who can’t believe it, here’s some proof:

No more biting

Stickel in da house

September 6, 2006

So Michael Q. Stickel finally made it, and the first impressions are in – he’s definitely gay. Wait, I mean not gay. Damn, first impressions are tricky.

It was cool to meet the man, the myth, and the legend in person. Now it’s time to let the geekery and dieting begin. Welcome to the States, Stickel.

Original Weight: 229
Week 1 Of Diet: 227
Week 2 Of Diet: 225
Week 3 Of Diet: 223
Week 4 Of Diet: 221
Week 5 Of Diet: 223
Week 6 Of Diet: 223
Week 7 Of Diet: 218
Total Weight Loss: 11 pounds in 7 weeks

I weighed in last night, and this isn’t an excuse, but this was with an additional pair of soaking wet pants with a wallet, medicine, cell phone, and who knows what else in them. With that said, with all those in there I still lost 5 pounds over the last week. I won’t have another chance to weigh-in again before next Tuesday so I am sticking with the 218 and see how it goes next week.

I had an extremely good week exercise wise this week. I did loads of situps and played a good amount of basketball in some pretty high heats. Needless to say as a fat guy I worked up quite a sweat and I’d say that helped quite a bit. I’ll most likely have a pretty active weekend, but I also think I’m going to eat a lot, so we’ll see how it goes for next week.

Keep up the good work everybody.

Week 5/6 Weigh-in

July 13, 2006

Original Weight: 229
Week 1 Of Diet: 227
Week 2 Of Diet: 225
Week 3 Of Diet: 223
Week 4 Of Diet: 221
Week 5 Of Diet: 223
Week 6 Of Diet: 223

Total Weight Loss: 6 pounds in 6 weeks

The delay in posting my weigh-ins has not been because of shame. I simply have not had the time or energy to post them. However, I have plateued a bit, but eventually I wanted to gain some weight. For the last two weeks my weight has been exactly the same, which is up two pounds.  I haven’t been overeating and I have been exercising and it seems I am slimming down, so I’m chalking up the weight gain to muscle gain.

Week 2 Weigh In

June 15, 2006

This has been one crazy week for me. I started off great (up to Friday) with the diet, then the weekend there were plenty of empty beer calories, and then Sunday through Tuesday I didn’t eat anything due to a freak illness.

The bottom line is that I lost two pounds with all that hecticness, but it probably wasn’t the best way to lose them.

Original Weight: 229
Week 1 Of Diet: 227
Week 2 Of Diet: 225

Total Weight Loss: 4 pounds in 2 weeks

I have noticed strongly that when I am being strict with my diet and exercise that this carries over in almost all aspects of my life.

I am much better organized and the cleanliness of my house/car is distinctly more noticeable. When I say I’m going to do something, it is more likely that I will do it when I’m in the determined state of mind. I’m not sure why I can’t be determined about somethings and not others, and I’m not sure if this is how everyone else is the same way.

Let me know if I’m the only freak out there.

I finally got to weigh-in this morning and the grand tally is (drumroll): -2 pounds.

Original Weight: 229
Week 1 Of Diet: 227

I’m actually very pleased with this number. I haven’t really cheated at all, and I have kept my calories at a very healthy level. I did a lot of exercise, but not enough to really be completely satisfied. This week is going to be tough for the exercise, but a new gym membership is definitely in order.

I also want to start weighing in on a different scale. This one is tough to read and is very low budget. I may pick up one that gives you your body fat percentage as well.

Keep up the good work, all.
