20 in 20 - Starting point 214.8
I'm going to lose 20 pounds in 20 weeks, and my starting point is this morning's weigh-in weight of 214.8 pounds. Glad to see I did not gain lots of weight over the weekend. Eating reasonably helped enormously; I'm at about the same weight I was a week ago. Now I just need to make a lot of it go away!

Tell Me More!

How can my lard join in your contest! If you spurred me to lose 20 pounds, I would so owe you a blowjob.

Good luck ! :-)

Eat lots and lots of steamed veggies.

I wish I could join you.

I hate gyms. I'm scared to walk in my neighborhood.

I have to get past these things.

What is your strategy?

Well, eating smaller portions and healthier food is my primary strategy. I'm also going to try drinking way less beer and other alcohol. (I already drink virtually no soda.) If I can get back in the exercise bike habit while watching TV, that'll help, too.

Good luck!

P.S. Switching to whole-wheat (or similar) flour is what I hear helps a ton. Except in dessert, of course.

Well, it's obviously easy - you only have to follow the 'one simple/old/funny rule' as seen on rachael ray, cnn, and abcnews, right? Of course it's for real, because 'a mom' said it, and it's on annasdietblog.com! Or is it mandysweightloss.com... or is it christiesweightblog.com? I don't know, but why would google and every other pay-per-click advertiser take ads from an obvious scammer running dozens and dozens of fake blogs with anonymous domains spread across multiple servers? They wouldn't do THAT, would they?

...Sorry, those ads have been pissing me off for months. Were I a lawyer for any of the media companies claimed to endorse that crap, I'd have my foot so far up those numbnuts' asses that I'd have to pull their teeth out of my shoe.

Also, it's 4:48am and I can't sleep, so that's making me a bit testy too.

I dropped weight 3 years ago (but gained it back) by eating a lot of veggies (had a farm share, so I was forced to) and walking up a big hill to classes several times a day.

I could lose 10 pounds, myself...
