How do you get over a plateau? You have to work even harder. You have to push through heart ache. Look I was pissed last week when I didn’t hit my goal. I was so upset. I had walked 17 miles that week. That’s something that I can’t even fathom myself doing 2 months ago. I hate to walk. Everything on my body hurts when I walk. But I’ve been dancing more on stage.. Parking further and further in the parking lot and just doing my best to not only meet my goals but to crush them too. CRUSH THEM!. And I have been crushing them. It’s just sometimes the scale doesn’t show it.
I noticed this weekend that I was already two notches on my belt from where I was at christmas time. All day I kept thinking to myself.. I have to put an old tuxedo on when I get home and see if it fits me. Well.. It did. And it was awesome. The tuxedo I work 18 months ago that was tight and the buttons kept breaking fit and looked great on me. (well great for me anyone). I have to go get it cleaned and get buttons put back on but I will be looking so much better this weekend at the wedding the bands playing. I CAN”T WAIT!. I am so excited. I had to buy a new tux this summer and its solo big. I can’t wait to retire it.
So many staying the same weight last weekend wasn’t so bad. My body is changing. I am determined.
I met the morning radio guy for Wired 96.5, Chunky and his girlfriend Kristin this past weekend with the band. He was at Parx for a radio promo with us. I thought it was funny… I fought the name Bigg Romeo in the beginning and couldn’t fathom a Dj wanted to call himself Chunky. He was so, so nice and had one of the smiles that makes you want to go to the bar and do shot after shot with him. I learned that he’s lost 180 pounds in the past year from just changing what he eats. That floored me. It also motivated me. I hope to talk to him this week and see what worked for him and hopefully draw a little more information. Shit, Maybe I’ll even get booked on his show when I hit my 100 pound goal.
Well I know what you are thinking. Did you lose any friggin weight this week? And I almost cried on the scale. I am down another 6ish pounds… Down to 380… If you’ve been reading along you know I started at 411 lbs on January 6th. So that’s 30 pounds since then and 20 more till I get a new tattoo. Any ideas on what I should get? Send them through.
It’s presidents day. Got up. Hit a bunch of errands and did 2 loops of Franklin Mills. 3.5 miles. I feel pretty good too. Got a few more Isopure protein drinks and kick started this next week with a bang. Next goal. Get to 375lbs.
Oh and I also took the tux to the cleaners. Going to spread my blog and twitter around a little this week. It’s time. I can do this. I was afraid I’d fail but I don’t really have that option anymore.
I’ll check back here in a few days and let you know how things are. I think a week is too long to remember things I want to put down here.
Family and Close friends are with me. I can’t lose.
