Beginning Weight: 226
Current Weight: 203
Goal Weight: 185
Left to Lose: 18

I have lost 23 pounds since beginning my diet about a month and a half to two months ago.

How did I do it?

It hasn’t been easy, but I have been using Weight Watchers for Men. I watched my wife lose weight using weight watchers for women and I figured it could work for me too.

The awesome part of the program is that it keeps me accountable for what I eat, I use the meal tracker and it is surprising how sometimes you forget what and when you ate. If I wasn’t using the tracker I would not be as successful as I have been.

I would highly recommend the program to anyone who wants to try it. If you’re not willing to use the tracker and look at nutritional labels and cut down on the quantity of food that you eat, you are wasting your money.

I have recently seen Charles Barkley doing commercials for weight watchers, granted he has name recognition among most men, but the guy is a douche. So I am officially throwing my hat in the ring, nobody has a clue who I am but Im way better looking than Barkley. Weight Watchers, I will accept moderate to high pay and let you plaster my super manly manliness all over the TV to inspire other guys to lose weight in trade.

* Side effects of weight watchers may include: mild to moderate increase in attractiveness, lessening of double chin, mammary loss, and decrease in love handles.

Die-ting

Few of you know that I am currently dieting. Yes, like a woman. I am concerned about my health more than my looks though, becauseĀ  I have timeless good looks that don’t follow the norms of weight and quantity of hair on my head. I started at 226 and currently sit at 214. My goal is 185. I am sure to update this as I make progress. If I say nothing about it, then I’m probably getting fatter.

Dieting is shitty. I like food. I like food in large quantities. I like fatty, sugary, buttery food in large quantities. Now I get to eat just enough of semi good tasting food to keep me from feeling starved, and just little enough that my body begins to eat itself, l am willingly participating in self cannibalism. I live in the richest nation in the world. We are so fat and so rich that we have completely shunned nutritious foods and rely solely on a steady diet of highly processed poison that is clogging our arteries and widening our chairs. Here I am attempting to reverse YEARS of behavioral reinforcement, advertising, and convenience by eating 3 shrimp, a few peas, and some bland spaghetti because it will help me lose weight.

It seems like it will inevitably be a losing battle. I am destined to one day be ginormous, hopefully that day is far into the future, but the brownies, candy bars, and cheese burgers are here in the present. Not only are they in the present they are on every corner at a fast food restaurant and gas station, in line at the check out, and on every desk of every receptionist in America. I am not just dieting I am taking on an entire industry and its billions of dollars of advertising and psychological profiling. Basically I am a super bad ass rebel. A super bad ass rebel that is forced to fight the oppressive grasp of high fructose corn syrup and trans fats with steamed broccoli and lean cuts of meat. Will I win? At the end there is a poll to find out what you think.
