Hey, Mike! How is today going for you? Still on track toward that bright new clippie? Come on, you know you want it! Just keep up the great work and it will be yours in no time.

Hey, Mike, I am going to take a lesson from your chinese restaurant experience and bring home 1/2 my dinner tonight and leave it for DH to have for lunch tomorrow. What a great idea, having the satisfaction of that meal, but not the temptation of leftovers! You are so clever!

So, hopefully, you will take this as a compliment and not an insult. Ready? I saw a special report on the Today show this morning about a guy who is walking across the country in an effort to lose weight. He has been walking since April and has lost about 40 pounds. Impressive, right? Actually, he has a great sense of humor and calls himself "Fat Man Walking". I think he started out around 400 pounds. I was thinking how you have been working hard in the context of "real life" and have made a lifestyle change and have accomplished more than 1/2 of what he has, in a shorter tme. I know how proud he seemed, and I thought you, in comparison, should be doing and and .

Keep it up, WISH buddy!

Hi Cam!

I definitely take it as a compliment! I am sorry I missed that segment on the Today show. I am a huge Katie, Matt, Al & Anne fan! Though the idea of walking across country is tiring just to imagine. hehehe! Maybe we can get the WISH-ers on the ABC morning show... I say ABC because it is Owned by Disney and then they can "surprise" at the end of the segment with free Disney trips!! Picture the segment... "Losing It With The Mouse!" I better find some email addresses at the network to write to! hehe

I do want that new clippie, I think the next level clip art is the coolest in the designs! hehe There you have it people, I am losing weight to get better clip art, the dirty truth revealed! hehe

Sounds like a good plan at your dinner tonight. Restaurant portions are out of control anyway, so it is not like a 1/2 portion is not satisfying. I am sure you will have a great meal and then feel good fiscally about stretching that dinner out into another meal!

I hope that you are having a good day, I am again swamped with meetings!
Mike

ITA! I swear half of my motivation to get from 25 to 30 was for the better clippie!!

I really applaud you for revealing your weight! I know how hard it is to talk about, but the sooner we can accept it as part of ourselves the sooner we can move on, right? Still, the only way my DH would know how much I weighed would be to read my journal (and then I'd be in trouble because he'd know what I thought of his singing ).

You're doing an awesome job! Keep up the great work!!!

Wow! I've just spent almost an hour reading of your FANTASTIC progress(and sorting out junk mail from bills in the process).

I am simply STUNNED!!!

You are quickly approaching having lost 10% of your body weight and that is the point where most say that you incur incredible health benefits.

As for your starting weight....OH WELL!!! You have come to grips with where you WERE and you know where you are going. DD picked up a pair of 75 waist shorts at a thrift store a few weeks ago that were clearly barely worn. Instead of what you would expect a teen to come up with for a comment, she said "Wow! That guy must really feel good at getting into a smaller size" Gradually she is learning that size does not make the person, but does generally impact the quality and quantity of life.

Your journal is inspiring reading and growing rapidly!

You are making very good food choices. Exercise will increase in proportion to your losses, I'm sure.

I'm very glad you are winning the Cola Wars. The caffeine is hard to break from, but just the carbonated sweetness is, too.

Keep on doing what you are doing. It is definitely working!!

Has there been any news on the rec center? Maybe I missed it.

Will catch up more later.

Thank you again! It was not easy posting it, as it was not easy admitting it and posting it definitelu makes it real. But you are right, those numbers will be gone soon enough and I will wave bye-bye to them!

I appreciate your support and hope that you have a happy & healthy night!
Mike

I have read that also! It is a great thing to think about, thank you so much for reminding me about that!

That is a great story about your daughter. It is definitely a testament to your parenting skills too! Go you!!

That has been my big challenge and one of the victories I am most proud of. This afternoon I was putting a few things away under the sink and what did I find?? Two 2L of soda, one Coke & one Dr. Pepper (Is that one yours Don???), I must've put there when the other cupboards were full and forgotten about them! I am going to bring them to my office tomorrow and see if anyone wants them because I certainly do not!

Sadly no! But I have found a few other ways to get my exercise going for now. I have been told that it is still happening, so we will see!!!

Glad that you enjoyed catching up on my journal! I appreciate all of your feedback and support!

I have greatly enjoyed reading your trip report in your journal too! Thank you for sharing that with us all!

Have a great night!
Mike

Well, I must say that you are inspiring. Thanks for the encouragement today in my journal.

Congrats on the lost lbs and the new clippie!! Personally, I love clippies so any time I get a chance to up grade, it's a good feeling.

Isn't it strange how we hide the numbers of our weight, thinking that if we don't reveal them then no one will know we are overweight? I know I did that. The day I decided to take the WISH challenge was the day that I revealed my weight and I was amazed that the floor didn't swallow me up. Then I let my DH and kids know. Now that was amazing. After admitting it, I found that it was just a number (of course, one we use to measure by) and it was easier to accept that I had finally gotten real about where I was.

Lucky for you, the weight will come off a little faster in the beginning, so you should be in smaller clothing real soon. That should be motivating.

If you ever get through to the Today show, count me in. I have always wanted to meet Matt. But don't just stop there. We shoud do the Dr. Phil show on how group support is a powerful thing, and the Oprah show on how people can actually make a difference in the lives of others. Of course, the free Disney trips would be great too!

Have a good evening.
