Weight Loss Success (Sort Of)...

As I mentioned in a recent post, I decided it was time to get off my ass and dedicate myself to getting in better shape. So, for the last four weeks I have been faithful to a regimen that includes:
  • An uphill bike ride of about two miles to the local sled hill.
  • Once there, I walk the bike uphill about 100 yards to the start of the stairs.
  • After some stretching, I proceed to climb the 462 steps to the top at a brisk pace.
  • Once at the top, I get a drink of water, stretch a little more, and then jog down the steps.
  • I repeat this climb as many times as I am able that particular day. The first day I did it, I was barely able to make it up once without stopping. Now, I usually climb it 3-4 times. My personal best is 5.
  • Then I do a slightly longer ride home.
I can tell you that by the end of the workout I am dripping with sweat. The results are starting to become visible. My pants seem a little looser and my energy level is significantly higher. As you can tell from the photo, I have reduced the size of my gut and my man-boobs look like they're starting to recede.

Now, if only I could drop some of this nipple weight...

I'd be able to send some extra positive thoughts your way if I wasn't busy scooping my eyes out with a mechanical pencil thanks to that picture.

You are one sick bastard.


And I mean that in a good way.

It looks like he glued on some Vienna Sausages. Cocktail sauce, anyone?

Good luck with the getting in better shape. Enjoy your success. But do not celebrate by eating donuts.

Haha, I used that same photo a while back. I'm somewhat relieved to know I'm not the only sick freak looking for nipples on the internetz. Having said that, they do look more like two dog penises.

Great news about the weight and inches lost.

The picture gives me the major creeps.

Sausage blasters are one of the most dangerous tools mankind ever invented.

Those nipples could probably cut glass.

Gwen said...

When you've lost so much weight that your clothes are waaay too big you can hang them from your nipples.

Happy Climbing!

Pruning shears and bandaids, and a bullet to bite. It's not like you'll ever be breastfeeding or anything.

Holy Jeebus, there goes my breakfast!

Way to go, Chris! Just because I'm averting my eyes doesn't mean I'm not proud of you.

OHMYGOD.

That's fake, right?
