The Weight Of The World Is On My Knees

By Wyatt Earp | July 19, 2009

stewie1Well, last week’s first weigh-in went rather well. I lost three pounds, and came down to 205 pounds. This week, I alternated between cycling and other exercise (jogging, yard work, and soccer with the boys), but I stayed within my Weight Watchers points five out of seven days. It was my hope that I lost another pound or two, and when I stepped on the scale this morning, this is what it read:

205 Pounds

Dammit. I didn’t lose any weight, but I didn’t gain, either. The missus, on the other hand, lost a pound, so that’s a good start.

Hopefully, next week will be better for both of us.

    Remember: Muscle is denser than fat and, therefore, weighs more per cc.

    Your mistake was in exercising to turn fat into muscle. I, on the other hand, are attempting to do the opposite and convert muscle into fat even if I must eat a 1/2 gallon (okay, 1.75 quarts) of ice cream every two days. I’d eat it faster than that but, you know, brain freeze sets in.

    If you make it down this way, I’ve got plenty of places I could take you to eat that I know you’d like.

    Oh wait, you’re trying to LOSE weight …

    Morgan – I know. I did it last year. I just have to get back on the horse, so to speak.

    Rick – Thanks.

    RT – Getting there . . . eventually.

    MeToo – My snacking consists almost solely of Triscuits. Love ‘em, so fiber isn’t an issue.

    Joated – I hate that cursed brain freeze!

    Doghouse – Yes, a trip down there would be the death (and happiness) of me.
