      Posting these cat-cartoons-without-the-cartoon was a long journey that I don’t know if I’ll repeat soon again. A daily blog is tough … even when you have your material handed to you! But, I couldn’t have done it without the artwork … Continue reading →

Another weighty post

Posted by joeabbott on August 10, 2013

imageBack in June I shared that I was doing well on my weight loss efforts; in order for this update to be as brief as possible, allow me to introduce a couple of pictures:



While I’m not too proud to admit to doing a little jig when I hit my goal weight of 205 lbs. (a weight I was at in my adult life when I felt best about my physical condition), modesty should preclude me from oversharing that I was in the buff and ran downstairs to jig in front of Suzy. She was ever so happy for it to have been night and reading her iPad in the dark. Even at a weight I’m most comfortable, I’m no Chippendale candidate!

So, as you can see, I’ve reduced my goal to 200 lbs. but I’m not necessarily motivated to hit it; it’s a function to encourage me to continue watching my good eating habits and not fall back into ready and easy weight gain. Truth be told, I did enjoy a 10 PM sweet treat Wednesday night. In the dark and in my new skin.

Here’s hoping your recent journeys allow you your own jig. Thanks for dropping by.
