Weigh In - Week 1
As for the poundage, I can say that my weight last Monday was as high as it has been for the past many years and I have never really been higher. In fact, I once heard a comedian say that fat people shouldn't say that they are "overweight"...if they have been at that (heavy) weight for a long while, then they are just "maintaining"...that was me. I have been "maintaining" my weight at a very high number for the past 5-6 years or so.
Can I just point out that I think that we Americans would be a lot happier disclosing our weight if we measured it like the British do, in stones? I am weigh A LOT OF POUNDS, yet in Great Britain, I weigh less than TWO DOZEN STONE (no, they don't pluralize it...and yes, if you are that curious, you can go google the stone to pound conversion, while the rest of us sit here and wait for your OCD self).
Anyway, in the past week, I lost 4 pounds (about 1/3 of a stone...a small rock, really). That is good...but for a big guy, that's almost like a party trick. A big guy can do that over a weekend, if he works the digestive system correctly.
Now I have to do it again. Stay tuned.
