Scene: Big Clyde and Mrs. Clyde are running errands on Friday afternoon.
Mrs. Clyde: "So, how much weight have you lost?"
Big Clyde: "Uhh, well you know, we just had that big lunch...and uh, I did drink a lot of water this morning, but you know, if I skip dinner tonight, maybe the scale might be okay tomorrow morning and...(mumbling)..."
Mrs. Clyde: "You're stalling! Are you still at that 50 pound weight loss milestone?"
Big Clyde: "Well, uhh, I might have gained some weight back, but you know, muscle weighs more than fat, so...(looks away and mumbles)I'm really at about 43 pounds lost at this point."
Mrs. Clyde: "But we engraved your iPod Touch with the phrase 'Big Clyde's First 50!'. What's the plan now, Clyde?"
Bummer. She's right. I am pretty happy with my weight, but I really should weigh less...at least where I was on September 6, 2010 when I had dropped to 275 (a 50-pound loss).
So, I decided on the spot that I will hand over my precious...my belovediPod Touch to my wife until I get back to that 50-pound weight loss mark.
