Gimme A Half A Pound Of Back Fat

By Wyatt Earp | July 5, 2009

<i>I wash myself with a rag on a stick.</i>

I wash myself with a rag on a stick.

Well, it’s come to this. – I lost a total of 41 pounds in six months – I am a semi-fat bastard again. Since June of ‘08, I have regained 13 pounds. Unacceptable.

So, I am back on Weight Watchers and back on the bike. I’m riding six miles a day in an effort to get under 200 pounds. (I’m currently at 208 at 5′9″ tall.) In the grand scheme of things, 13 pounds gained in 12 months isn’t the end of the world, and I still fit into my clothes, but I’m not happy with the way I look.

Like I ever am.

So, I’ll post my progress every Sunday, if for no other reason than motivation from you good folks. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get down below 200 – or better yet, below 190 – by the end of the summer. Wish me luck.

    Aw Wyatt,
    You’re not semi-fat,
    you’re just big boned!

    Drink lots of water,
    and stay away from the Fen-Phen.
    You can do it!!!

    Wimp! 5′8″ and 220 :) I have been doing some Enduro Riding (dirt bikes) and figure I will lose some weight when I knock a limb off or something. Took a big splat today in some sand whoops! Good Luck, and after Disney with the Kid, I think I will start biking also. Keep it up, love the site, although the Chick Pics have been a little light lately :)
    Pulling for ya!

    Now trust me on this one, Hoss (little humor there).

    Tofu and Plain Yogurt, and enemas.

    You might be a little cranky the first week, but what the heck, it’s not like you have to deal with the public.

    5′9″ and 230. The only time in my adult life I was under 200, I worked at FedEx unloading trucks for 3 months and lost 40 lbs.

    You’ll pull the Miller Lite and bacon cheeseburger from my cold dead hands!! Whoa, after thinking about that last sentence, it is a very real possiblity.

    Good Luck Wyatt.
    I recently restarted the battle of the bulge.
    I have lost 18.5 lbs. I can not walk much due to a bad hip. Think needs replaced. So I know you can do it.

    I can’t believe how fast is goes up when you let down your guard.

    Starts looking for new motivational pictures. And if I can’t find just the right ones, I will edit some to fit. :D

    You’re only an inch taller than me? Huh. I pictured you taller for some reason. You’re shorter than my husband! Heh.

    Thanks, everyone! I’m still cycling every day and watching the calories. I’ll post updates on Sundays.
