The Pinback Fat Thread

Post by pinback » Sat Jul 29, 2017 7:29 am

No more fatass challenges. Let's just get this done.

The biggest number I saw on the scale was 317.

Two months ago it was 300.

This past Friday, it read 277.6. Progress is significant and steady.

In this thread, I will report our weekly progress on Friday mornings. The goal is 2.5 pounds per week. At that rate, by 2018, I should once again resemble something in the general shape of a human being.

This week's goal: 275.

Let's go.
Above all else... We shall go on... And continue!

Goal: 275
Actual: 275.4
Weekly Loss: 2.2

I'm going to dial the goal back to 2 per week instead of 2.5. I could not have dieted or exercised harder this week, and didn't quite hit the 2.5, so let's just say, 2 (or so) a week, and we're good. Whatever. Something in the 2-ish range.

Next weeks goal: 273

Do you exercise? That sounds like work and no fun.

My exercise consists of a 3-mile walk at 5:30 in the morning, every day, usually followed up by a 1.5 mile walk later in the day, but sometimes not. But the 3-miler is a given.

(For those who might think, damn, 3 miles at 5:30 in the morning, sounds like a mufucka, let me assure you, it is -- by far -- the most enjoyable hour of my day, without even the slightest question.)

Do you plan on having a belt lipectomy done after you achieve your weight loss goals?

I do not. I also don't know what that is.

Three miles each morning is commendable. I walked three miles on Friday, but I did it one mile at a time, at three different times. You are doing great!

I have been calorie tracking with MyFitnessPal lately. There are a lot of things that are high in calories that I had no idea. Like cheesecake.

I really enjoy riding my motorcycle into work, but you've inspired me. I am going to walk every day, back and forth this week. Thanks, buddy. You're doing this for all of us.

Here is my out-and-back route:

http://bit.ly/2wpZZL1

Here is the spotting game I play along the way:

Cars (on Moorehead only): 10 points
Humans (not in cars): 50 points
Turkeys: 100 points
Pat a horse on the head: 200 points (per horse)
Deer: 500 points
Bunny: 2000 points
Armadillo: 10000 points

(All of those things have been previously spotted/done on the route. The armadillo, only once.)

One thing you could add to improve your spotting game would be to add muggers to that list. They'd have to have an enormously high point value considering how uncommon they'd be in that neighborhood and scoring them would help take the sting off of things a little bit in hindsight.

Friday, August 11, 2017

Start: 275.4
Goal: 273
Actual: 269.4
Loss: 6.0

If last week's weight seemed artificially high, this one seems artificially low.

We'll set next week's goal to 268, to allow this to even out a little. Also, I may be going at it a little TOO hard. By 8 PM every night I am dead exhausted. But we'll see, maybe that's just what it takes.

You should consult your physician regarding your weight loss goals and your plan for achieving them because you could be doing more harm then good.

It is such a strange phenomenon, that no matter how well you're doing on any health-related endeavor, someone will immediately tell you how you're doing it wrong or what you should be doing instead.

We all knew it would be Billy Mays for this one, since Paul isn't here, and Finsternis is too large to fit into his computer room anymore.

Fascinating. Happens every single time.

It's just fine, thank you. I am wearing a shirt that hasn't fit me for three years. We're all fine here.

The thread is more about making sure I don't forget to hit my goals and then have to experience the SHAME of FAILURE in front of all of you fine folks, and Billy.

Well, you're gonna be tired until you build up some more muscle, so being dead-tired means you're on track!

If all you're looking for is to be e-blown:

Great job pinback on losing some weight while acting completely shit tier by not seeing a physician over it!

Ah ha. "Doc, I want to lose weight but I thought I'd check with you first."

"Okay. Go ahead then?"

pinback was right, there is always someone telling you you're doing it wrong. Nigga lost 45 pounds and he did it in the "wrong" way.

Nobody goes to the hospital because they dropped 45.
