Before/After Friday

I took a couple of new pictures since I haven’t taken any since February and I’ve lost more weight since then.I’m really not sure what I weigh in this picture. I think it is probably higher than 323, but I don’t know for sure. This picture was taken at a wedding in 2007.

This one was taken at a pre-wedding party in 2007.

This picture was taken yesterday. I just wish the lighting had been a touch better so you could really see my mutant white hands from wearing biking gloves. 😀

The obligatory belt picture. Just about 18 inches from the belt hole I used to use to the one I now use. About 137 plus pounds gone from the top pictures to the bottom pictures.

Weight Statistics


Hmmm. I’m a bit surprised by that drop. I guess the phantom weight gain disappeared but now we have a bit of a phantom weight loss. I wasn’t expecting a drop after my FRIED SHRIMP POBOY FEAST. 😛

Yesterday’s Meal Plan

Breakfast – None

Lunch – Over stuffed fried shrimp poboy

Dinner – None

Snack – None

Calories – 1500

I am not sure if I heard angel trumpets or devil trombones but the chorus was singing hallelujah as I ate the shrimp poboy. It was fantastic. Who knew fried food tasted so good? 😛

Skipped meals the rest of the day but in truth the poboy was huge and had almost as many shrimp off the bread as on the bread so I really wasn’t the least bit hungry last night.

I’m still thirsty from the salt which is why I expected at minimum a water gain today. Speaking of water……

IT RAINED!!! Yesterday afternoon is was looking gloomy and it actually rained. I got a rain day and a shrimp poboy all in one day. 😀

Biking Update

Rain day!!!

Tip Of The Day

Take a vacation.

One of my dear readers came up with this tip and I am going to try it out.

The bike and the wind have been causing me all sorts of misery so I am going to take a week off. Not sure when. I’ll probably wait for July when the heat starts to melt the asphalt but at some point in July, I am going to take a full week off from the bike ride.

Similar to knowing you can cheat on the diet, thus making it easier to hold on to your sanity, I think knowing I can take a week off from the bike will somehow make it a little easier to hit the levee.

Oh, Shonnie gave me the vacation idea. Here is her site.

Good tip, thanks.

Happy dieting see you tomorrow and have a great weekend

  1. What a transformation! Congrats!

    • Thank you. I’m actually pretty happy with the new pictures although my friends from the sports board are making fun of my jorts. 😛

  2. Awesome results. I came across your blog searching for “happy scale” images. Congrats again!

  3. Aw, Grumpy! What a photo! Aren’t you proud of yourself and what you’ve accomplished?! ‘Cuz you *should* be!!! You look incredible! Oh boy, that’s a lot of shouting I’m doing…

    And you *should* be doing the Snoopy Dance… a dance of completely exuberant joy!

  4. wow that’s incredible! You look amazing! That belt picture is just brilliant lol

    • I love the belt. Some people throw their old clothes and belt away, but I like being able to see where I came from.

  5. Those pictures are amazing!! Great job!

  6. What a great transformation! You must be very happy. I love the belt. Someday — when I get closer to goal — we should compare belts… Keep up the good work.

    • Thanks. I’m not sure my belt will be getting any new holes on it. Maybe one more and that will probably be the end of my diet. I might start doing some stomach exercises because it needs lots of work. 😀

  7. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog – your pictures show such a great change – massive congrats.
