70 Days, 30 More Lbs Til Lake Dora! – Can I Make It?

M fine! Bring on the Bacon. In 70 Days

That’s roughly half a pound a day. And then I will look good in my bikini. Hey, don’t judge! Not even my boat BTW. My plan is to bring Stinky, and just enjoy the Florida Sun..burn and boating. It looks like we have about 10 guys in on this weight loss thing. Which is 9 more than I thought.

So this should be fun all seeing whats left of each other in Florida. Now here is the dilemma. See when you shock your system with bad food again, it has a tendency to .. well.. shoot right through you.

Palm Gardens

Palm Gardens is a show into its self

So.. Palm gardens. mmmmm. Someplace in the middle of that canal, NO WAKE Dora Canal. I know sumthing is gonna start brewing. BAD. HEY DON’T JUDGE.

Dora Canal. No Toilets. Maybe the Gnomes have one. Yeeeee. Ya, what a way to destroy a little town.

Oh the humanity!

I mean it’s sure amazing, but not if you are in a hurry.. So. Do you go for the Jalapeno Poppers, Fries, and not make it back to the show with whats left of any dignity you have left at age 61? Or do you sit there while others dive in and eat the celery from everyone’s Spicy Wings and Bloody Marys?

I smell something? you smell something? OH GAWD!

I mean the boat is called Stinky, and a little more crap in the bilge really wouldn’t make all that difference.

Oh no, Bob, what is that? I don’t know Betty. Smells like Jalapeno Poppers..

Just one more reason to have a 5 gallon bucket! Thanks Phil!

Okay, now that everyone is gone. how did you do this week? Here is my Weigh in. As of 4:30 AM Saturday January 11, 2020 I am down to 241.8, from 252.2. WAIT, that’s 10lbs WOOHOOO!

This morning. No Coffee yet. That’s code for I could a little more to go today. HA

Last Saturday. 252.2

Now, this happens to be the only benefit for being a big guy. You can drop 10lbs just by drinking more water and some good you knows. The .8, or .2  part will become a bigger deal as we get down to the nitty gritty. There will be weeks we gain weight, then dump. Weeks where we just loose 1 lb. All Good. Don’t worry. It’s a long play. The good news is I have 500% more energy, more focus. Okay some focus. And my joints dont hurt. Which is huge for me. Let us know how you are doing. All good, all fun and looking forward to Lake Dora.. Dora Canal? And yes, I did double check my spelling of Canal.. One wrong space and its C anal.. OH BOY..

      I have socks out the wazooo. been collecting socks for decades and so have the dogs, so, guess what. I have one of each. So about 10 years ago, I said what the hell. Who says they have to match? My life has been freer since.
      IDEAL PROTEIN. Its fantastic. I never feel hungry or deprived. The first week is a bitch. NO ALCOHOL, which for me is fine since I dont drink.

    Dropped 14 lbs a year ago Sept until I contracted Shingles in Feb and the gabapentin caused weight gain (that’s my story I’m sticking to it). Trying to lose it again back down to 168 where I was before shingles. At 178 (and 5’10”) losing 10 lbs seems the toughest thing to do. A year ago 14 came off in 8 weeks but was doing strict keto, no sugar, low carbs. Modifying it slightly doesn’t work. Stay on the plan.
