Drum roll, please...

I was at my doctor's office today about this stupid recurring cold that's been around since Christmas. She wanted to weigh me, to see how the diabetes thing is going. I've gone from 95 kg (about 209 lbs.) to 92 kg (202 lbs.) in 16 days! Tah-dah!

Doc complimented me, and I told her "You know, it's not that difficult." She wouldn't accept that, saying that it IS difficult. Either way, that's encouraging, and incentive to keep up the battle.

I must be totally candid, and admit that the encouragement from my fellow bloglodytes has helped.

GROUP CYBER HUG!

Let me the first pervert to group cyber hug you . I may not recognize you in your speedo ....funny how when our health is involved we can change all our nasty habits .

JB said...

I've got some fairly major surgery coming up in a few months, and so I've been trying to lose weight along with you, (as weird as that may sound, I don't care) and in less than two weeks, I've gone from 207 to 197.5! ...so if you like, we can add a competition equation to this, and that'll help keep us focused. (Well, help keep me focused anyway. You have health reasons to help keep you focused).
...Nicely done, by the way.

You're on, Lard Butt.

It's a pretty level field, because we both started at about the same point and the same time.

Ma can be the referee, because we know that she'll allow trash-talking.

When we finally meet in person, I'll be the slim middle-aged guy with the salt-and-pepper hair, laughing at your fat ass.

NGB, big pat on the back for ya! I have been trying to figure out how to drop the last 10 ponds I have been carrying for th last 4-5 years. You two can serve as my inspirations...

Ma Horton said...

Wow , thanks for the vote of confidence . I love to referee fat asses . It's a long time hobby of mine . Maybe we can get Milky to take a group foto of us for old times sake of me and the skinnybuttockmen . Get crackin' .... oops I am trash talkin' already .

Newsguy Bob said...

That's the attitude, Ma. Just what we're looking for in a referee.

Maria said...

So NGB and JB are competing, Ma is the referee... What is CQ and Maria's role?

CQ said...

Somehow, I see us as the "ring girls", carrtying around bigass signs showing weight loss numbers...

Milky said...

I was watching Opra a few months ago and she had Dr. Wasshizname on there talking about weight loss.

He was quite serious when he turned to the camera and said that when it comes to losing weight, every 20 pounds a guy loses from his gut, it adds 1 inch to uh... ummmm... you know where.

Since watching that, I'm down 10 pounds... (insert your own visuals here.)

Newsguy Bob said...

Trust me: As a guy who once lost 40 lbs., I can tell you authoritatively that that is not true. It only LOOKS bigger, cuz it isn't dwarfed by the protruding gut.

I wish!

Ma Horton said...

I was just wondering if this is a fatass or a big you know where watch . CQ and Maria ;prepare to measure .

Ma Horton said...

Get off your site and go eat a cuke .

Newsguy Bob said...

Can't. I'm 'lergic to cukes.

JB said...

Cukes make him puke.

JB said...

If losing gut meant gaining more of that, I'd be on a treadmill for about three hours a day and eating nothing but celery.

...but NGB (aka 'the other lardass') is right. It ain't bigger. You can just see more of it.

For a "private consultation" on the subject (female gender only, please and thanks), call my pager.

;-P

Milky said...

Thanks guys.

Now I'm depressed. Pass me the chips and dip. I mean, why not right? Afterall... life is SHORT!

LOL

Ma Horton said...

Maria said...
