I decided to take my computer with me to PA. I’m taking this whole “stop being tubby” thing seriously. This should be evidenced by the other thing I brought with me:


Yes. You are seeing that correctly….

I brought my scale with me and that would be the bathroom floor at the Holiday Inn. You can actually see my right foot is STILL swollen. At this point I think that it’s actually sprained and it has nothing to do with gout. Just good old fashioned injury. Rub some dirt on it and get back out there, I say! Ok that’s not what I say. I’m a wuss, I’m going to the doctor next week if it’s still jacked up.

I realize bringing the scale in your duffle bag might be a little extreme, but I really, and I mean REALLY want this to work. So far so good, so why change the formula, right?

276-269 = 7 pounds six days.


I forgot to take a picture of what I ate today so here it is in pictures from the interwebs plus one I took yesterday.

Yup, that would be me circling three meatballs. I brought them in a cooler and had them for dinner, out of a ziplock bag.


Today I did not eat all that much, I know this. I’m going to eat a little more tomorrow, I just didn’t think about it too much before I took off for Pennsylvania!

Here’s something to contemplate:


I’ve adopted this strategy. Say no to things that get in way of the goal, as much as possible. I know it’s not always going to happen, but I can give it a big shot.

Tomorrow I have no idea if I’ll have the internet or not, if I do, there will be a post.

Get after something personal to you this weekend. Do something for yourself. Enjoy it. Stop and pay attention to something beautiful that isn’t on your TV. DO IT! I command you.

Odd choice of words to end that last sentiment, but I’m not known for doing anything subtly.

    Scale in a duffle=creepy
    Softer side of Ben=less creepy
    Job well done!! Also, see the dr about that foot!!

    Doctor for a sprain? Like you said suck it up and get back out there. But then again you also said you are a wuss.

You're here...might as well say something...
