Hey guys, what happened to the Pinback Fat Thread? I seem to be getting redirected to the Pinback Thin Thread every time I try to read the latest posts. Filing a bug report now.
When I was at my heaviest, the chart said "obese".

After I lost the first 40 pounds and started this thread, the chart said "obese".

Now I'm all the way down to 228, about 90 down from where I started. Lemme just check the char--

OBESE!!!

The fuck was the point of all this?
Above all else... We shall go on... And continue!

You could buy a bunch of sports jerseys that you wear all the time, then you would be considered underweight.

Charts these days are made for twitter. They do not use terms that could offend you. So it's just... obese.

I'm not even trying anymore. I went...

(searches for a unit converter to translate kg to moon units)

...from 231.4 to 253.5 in 10 months. Fuck it. I give up.

If you have body part amputated does that still count towards total weight loss? Say 200 pounds of leg/ham hock ? Asking for a friend.
the last group complained, quite tellingly They said, "Why don't you have a spoon that just says 'Earth?' It would save time

Once pinback reaches his goal he should send a picture of himself to ICJ to use in cyberganked. Maybe the shop keep has a skinny twin?

This is now over 100 pounds lower than my max weight, mentioned in the first post of this thread. Triple-digit club, boyeeeeiiieee.

Any advice for those last 14 pounds, Paul?

Yeah, I know a way to lose 14 pounds in probably 14 seconds. But you won't like it. Mainly because you'd have to go see a doctor, and I know how much you hate doing that. It would also make running or exercise a bit more difficult.
This signature is limited to 128 characters, or I could have said a few more things. Like, do you know who killed JFK? it was...

I forgot to ask earlier. Ben, is this diet plan sustainable for the long haul? I don't want you to Oprah yo-yo for the next decade. I mean the cigarette gum and the bennies, are they going to help you maintain?
