At least something is progressing.

Eight weeks ago I was 228lbs. I weighed in yesterday at 208lbs. woo hoo. My secret goal is to be under 200 by my birthday. I may or may not make that but that is my goal. I have 4 weeks to drop another 8-9lbs. Here we go.

WTF man

First off, yes I have been drinking, But I feel what I have to say is equally valid whether or not I was drunk.

It is sad to me that in the last year I have had 10 dates planned and that only 3 of those actually showed and that of those 3, two ended early because it was clear I wasn't putting out. The other 70% never happened because I was stood up or canceled due to some lame reason and never heard from them again.

Last week I was to have a date with a guy and he "hurt" his back at work during the day and had to cancel. However he never told me this until I was waiting for him and texted. He said he sent me an email on facebook, but I never received it. Tonight we were to meet again but he sent a text an hour before meeting and says he has to work late. I find this a little convenient. He actually said that we would need to push back our meeting time. And then I didn't hear from him again. SERIOUSLY??????

What the fuck!!!??!?!?!?!?!

A few things

I love biking. What I don't love are stupid people and those same stupid people on segways and those people on the 4 wheeled bike carriages I don't know what they are call but I hate them. I am a courteous biker, I tell them when I am coming up on the left to pass people. It's when they don't take heed and I come to a complete stop just to get around them. And then they give me dirty looks for not running them down. I say just run em down it's easier on me.

On to some good news as of weigh in today I am at 214lbs. The lowest I have been in... in... I am not really sure maybe 7-8 years.

Next Tuesday at 10 am Central time I will be interviewing for a job in Chicago. This thrills me to know end. Just to have an honest to god sit down interview and not just a phone interview makes me happy. So I may be a member of the Chicago populous very soon.

Just saying no.

So in doing this weight watchers thing really became difficult last night. The budgeting for drinks was not an issue, however budgeting for drinks and popcorn at the movies was a bit of an issue especially since I had Quiznos for lunch. Not my choice by the way, I met with a friend of mine who I am helping with a camp and she picked Quiznos for lunch so I went with it. Not the worst place but not the best. After the movie we went off to Greg's for a couple of drinks and then as I left to go home there it was, a craving. I was so hungry, I would normally stop at the White Casket and get an order of cheese sticks. I had 4 points left on the day. I looked up what a fried stick of cheesey goodness would cost me. 10, 10 points for 2. I normally have an order of 10, holey crap people. Are you telling me that in my sack of 10 is 50 points and I only get 36 daily points. That almost made me throw up right there. With that knowledge I had to just drive straight home and say no to fried goodness. I came home and fixed a much lighter snack and went to bed only being 2 points over for the day instead of 44. I don't have enough will power for this.

Gaga... no no

So Lady Gaga is in Indy tonight and I have to say I do not get it. I don't care for her music. I have seen her videos she isn't that good of a dancer. Her voice is over producer and it's all just a little too freak show for my taste. I feel like I am the only homo on earth not tripping over myself for this concert.

So, why should I pay for that again?

I was watching TV and saw an ad for Weight Watchers. I have known several people who have been on it and it has worked really well. Actually I have never known anyone who went on it who didn't have success. Well in this ad they were touting an app for your phone to track points. I thought "hmmm, I wonder if my phone has this?" So I did a quick search and there it was. Actually three handy apps. One has a list of foods and what they are worth. Another is a calculator to figure out the points of a food and the last one is a tracker. I just plug in some info and it tells me how many points I get. I can also figure how many activity points I get from working out. I have to say for just using it a couple of days, it pretty helpful. I get 36 points for the day without exercising. Which is good for when I am eating at home and making my own food. I actually find it difficult to reach 36 points. But then for fun yesterday I was looking up some foods and found that one trip to Burger King would cost me 32 points....

Yea just let that sink in for a minute. I about died. Now I have to say over the last three weeks for some reason I haven't had fast food but like twice. Not because I was trying mind you it just happened. and I have lost like 7 lbs. Granted I have also been on my bike a lot but still I can see how my avoiding the drive thru has effected my waist line.

Knowing that fast food has that much of my daily pointage makes me reconsider all my eating choices. I have always justified it away as saying "Oh every so often won't kill me." But every so often meant like 3-4 times a week. Which really adds up. So yea wow. No wonder Americans are such fatasses. I mean I knew this but it's like I really know this, enough so to make me want to stop eating in those places.

Back to my point. If all of this information which is the basis of the weight watchers schtick is readily available, then why should I have to pay for it. Why should anyone. I was chatting with my roommate David about it and he said it's so the people can get together once a week and yell at you for being a fattie. I said awesome yet another reason not to pay for it.

So I will keep using it. It may work it may not but I will know in a few weeks if I have dropped more weight of course it could also be the biking too.

In the spirit of staying positive.

My biking adventures have been paying off in the fact that for the first time in 2 years I am under 220. Or at least I think it has been two years I could be wrong on that. I just know the last time I seriously tried to maintain a healthy active regiment was two years ago when I went to Vegas. Who knows I may actually hit my drivers license weight.
