Oh, wait…that’s 198.4!
The progress continues, despite some unruliness in my diet. As the holidays begin gearing up, it’s going to get harder to travel the straight and narrow. But I’m thinking that as I build muscle tone and as muscle becomes a larger percentage of my body mass, maybe I have a little more leeway. I hope so!
Arwyn had a gift card for Applebee’s that she’s had since last Christmas and it was burning a hole in her pocket so we all went out to eat Sat. night. She pointed out the section of the menu for Weight Watchers, for which I was somewhat grateful. This was about as much acknowledgment of my weight loss effort as I can expect from her.
My co-workers who have been going on and on about my improved shape all want to know what Arwyn thinks about it. I’d like to say she loves it and can’t keep her hands off me but that simply isn’t the case. I say she knows about it and approves and that’s about it. I like the compliments from the ladies at work. It keeps me motivated. But looking good is not sufficient to light the fires of an unmotivated spouse. I’ve seen the HNT’s of Oblivion, C-Marie, Tajalude and most guys would give both nuts to be with women that look that good. So looks don’t do it, even to get guys going who are supposed to be all visual.
Last week I went ahead and bought a pair of black jeans and they did look good! Size 36, which this body has not seen in at least a decade and maybe longer. It was nice to be wearing something that actually fit instead of being sort of loosely draped and cinched up. It’s also what I wore to the restaurant Sat. night.
Just to extend the post on my Unsolicited Advice blog (the much-neglect blogspot one) I imagine getting the female members of my imaginary invisible audience all hot and bothered!
Silly me doesn’t have any good before/after HNT type shots as I was entirely too embarrassed by my “before” body. So with no comparison, I’m just another bloke on the street. To put it another way, I’m not built as good as Tom Allen but might get comparable if I suck it way in and puff my chest way out! And I have some serious work to do before I get in a similar league as Figleaf.
But perhaps that might be my next lark. I might take a series of pics and occasionally post them in the name of selfish and indulgent vanity. And then again it could end up backfiring terribly.
No other gossipy news for now, but there is some drama coming soon. I’ll either be venting or celebrating. Past experience tells me it will be the former but hope springs eternal.
BTW, you Yankees need to quit hogging all the water and send some down here to Georgia!
