8/6/2010 – 51 Pounds Lost – 4 Pounds to Go – 15 Days Left

I continue to eat like a mad man and I continue to lose weight. I feel great and the pounds are coming off. I am not going to complain. I think I heard that at some point you need to eat a lot more to lose weight……. I have always heard that so I guess it is my turn now. Today I went back to the old workout facility and had an intense workout. One thing that I realized is that with all the fancy equipment and eye candy working out the only thing I missed was showering by myself. No one else in the little room - taking a shower 4 feet away from me - with no divider. My current workout spot allows me to use the equipment when I want and not have to wait to use it. There is really nobody in my current workout spot that I have to deal with it is nice. It makes you think about what you really need in life to be happy and accomplish your goals. I have all the same equipment with much less stress – it's just kind of dark and dingy there. I have dropped half of my weight there and will accomplish my end goal there. I believe there is a lesson here. I will take it to heart.
To everyone reading this and going through family stress – trust me I understand what you are going through. It's never as bad as it seems at the time and with some deep reflection and contemplation you can make the situation livable and potentially change it. Strength I wish for all!


  1. You have worked your ass off, literally, and deserve this time of eating-and-still-losing. It's gotta be a wonderful feeling. :)

    Thank you for all of your support as I struggle through my own family drama.

  2. Part of the reason why I started this blog was to help and give others strength because I know I am not normal and I know that people need to physically see, touch, or smell something to really believe it. I am a maniac and I am the reason the commercials say "results not typical". But if it hits close to home some may draw strength from it. I hope you are. Keep the strength.

  3. Sounds like you are comfortable with where you workout, I never thought about it but it makes sense that it would be important to do so. Working out in an intimidating environment is certainly less productive and who has time to waste? Not me.

  4. It's dark and dingy at my current workout spot. Maybe you didn't quite get that. At any rate - you could NEVER sell a membership where I am working out because of the dark and dingy thing, showers, and very small quarters. But I realized I have all I NEED at my current spot and there lies the lesson... I would say I am very comfortable where I am working out at. It does make a big difference. The only thing is the shower thing… don't think I will ever be comfortable with that one…
