For years, I had labored under the delusion that I was perpetually 210 lbs.* because that’s what my California driver’s license had listed. This made for interesting looks on those few occasions when I was pulled over or the many times when I was asked for I.D.

But my friends, today things are different.

As of this post, I now weigh 210.1 lbs. which is just a hair shy of what my driver’s license reads. It’s so close that I’m going to go ahead and count it as being yet another Milestone in my weight loss progress. By tomorrow I should be there so what the hey, good enough. I can now proudly show my license when asked and not be ashamed about the listed weight. The picture, on the other hand, will need to be updated since I look like King Big Mac**.

And at my current weight it also means that I’m getting closer to kissing the 210s goodbye! Wow…remember when I felt stuck in the 230s and 220s? It wasn’t that long ago, peeps!

Moving along…

In a previous post, I had mentioned that shaving has become a little more routine since my face isn’t as chunky as it once was. Back then I had to shave every other day as opposed to every third day.

Well, now I’m shaving every morning. For a guy that couldn’t grow facial hair if he tried, believe you me when I say this is really odd. I need to invest in some more shaving cartridges. Or maybe I’ll add them to my Amazon Wish List

And WOO HOO! It’s Subway Thursday! Today’s the day I stroll on down to the local Subway for my footlong Veggie Delite so that I have lunch for today and tomorrow. $5 for two days of lunch is a pretty good deal.

That’s it for now. See ya later!

* Paraphrasing from the movie A Christmas Story. At least I give credit. ** King Big Mac refers to a term uttered by late L.A. radio DJ Bruce Vidal, who my brother worked with many years ago. Bruce once said that he looked like “King Big Mac” in a picture my brother took of him because he had a mouthful of food at the time. We still use that phrase today. We miss you, Bruce!

Don’t Be Lazy, Part Deux

My alarm went off at the usual time of 5 a.m. this morning. I normally lay in bed and slam the snooze button until 5:30 a.m. but today I decided to try something different.

I woke up, got out of bed, and went straight to the den for some Wii Fit. I did this for many reasons, mostly because lying in bed and slamming the snooze button for 30 minutes is just wasteful. It was also a way to kick-start my blood flow as I’ve been really tired at my work desk lately, and I wanted so see if this helped.

I did mostly aerobic workouts: Hula-Hoop, jogging (full island lap), step aerobics. (The yoga and strength will wait ’til tonight.) I went and took my shower shortly after the workout, which was nearly 30 minutes total.

So how do I feel? I’m munching on my traditional Thursday Subway Veggie Delite sandwich and I have to admit, I feel good. I think this change is going to work out just fine.

With the holiday around the corner, you know what that means: food-a-plenty. So stay focused, try to eat in moderation, and I’ll see you back here on Monday.

Have a safe and happy 4th! 🙂
