I've Misplaced 16 POUNDS So Far...

A few weeks back, I posted here on CHEESE how I have been using a website called, The Daily Plate , to become more mindful of the extreme quantities of CRAP I have been shoveling into my pie hole over the past many moons...thus causing an EXTREME QUANTITY OF WEIGHT to accumulate around my bones! And, after reading both BUBBIE'S BLOG and ANNE'S BLOG about their successes using the website, I thought I should possibly update all y'all on MY personal success.

I say those words "personal success" with tongue in cheek because I have a very, very looooong road to travel in my return to a healthy weight and activity program before I will feel successful. But, I am pleased to report I have somehow MISPLACED 16 pounds off my frame...I'm hoping I have "misplaced" the weight well and will not be FINDING it again any time soon (either via natural gorging at the table or steroid use for MS).




Just to give you a pictoral idea of what 16 pounds looks like, I've prepared the picture below for your viewing...(not as classy as BUBBIE'S Weight Ticker at the bottom of her blog, but I think you'll "get the picture" LOL)...

I am one of those lucky people in life who do not have to worry about weight as my wife will tell you , but knowing how many times I have TRIED to stop smoking and not had enough willpower suspect if I did not have a super metabalism would not do that well so all power to you

It is comforting to me to know that my "baby" fat does not look like yours. LOL I've got 15 pounds down and 15 more to go.

Keep up the good work,
Anne

If you are somewhat of a techno-geek, obsessive/compulsive person like me, you'll LOVE the site (I can't speak to BUBBIE and ANNE'S "issues"...LOL)

Why thank you! I know as a martial arts practitioner such as yourself, discipline is probably the key, right?
