I'm Bad - I'm Nationwide

Went to the doctor today to get a flu shot. "Can we weigh you today?" "Sure," I said. I climbed up on the scale after shedding my shoes. "I think I know where you were at the last time you were here." The nurse fiddled with the little slider weight for a few seconds. She kept sliding it back down the scale and looked at me like "what the?" "You've lost a lot of weight!" Dang straight, I thought.

I weighed at home this morning before my shower. The scale read "302.6 pounds." Maybe the old plateau is starting to ease off. I hope so.

Since 2003, I've lost a total of a little over 40lbs. Slow going, but it's coming off for good.

5 Measly Pounds

I’m still here.

I read yesterday in the paper that some journal reported that people who check their weight every day on the scale lose more weight than people who don’t. Good thing I am obsessive compulsive. I’m checking it daily and watching it go up and down like a rubber ball.

I’m pretty much hovering around 305 pounds. Last time this plateau kind of thing happened was during the summer when I stayed at 325 pounds for weeks.

Five measly little pounds. Five more pounds and I can kiss the 300’s goodbye.
