Here it is, the much awaited (by me, many of you probably don't care) weigh in. I can't believe the results.
I was hoping for maybe 289, but HOLY CRAP. I don't know whether or not to actually believe this. I think I need to. I've been thinking for the past few days that 100 pounds was an unrealistic goal, but today's results are super encouraging. I might actually make it!
A co-worker told me about a website where you can make goals, sign a contract, and it will keep you on task. The thing that makes this website unique: you can set it up to donate money to an "anti-charity" if you fail to meet your goals. I could set it up to donate a dollar for every pound I fall short of my goal to the George W. Bush Presidential Library or NAMBLA (probably not NAMBLA, come to think about it). I did some research and the website is called stickK. The extra K in the name is legalese for contract (I asked my wife, a law student, she confirmed it). Now, you don't have to donate money to an anti-charity, but it would sure light a fire under your ass.
Lastly, I went to the gym tonight. 32 push-ups. A new record! I realized that I've never done 32 push-ups in my entire life. I'm so pleased.
In closing, I'm proud of myself but slightly skeptical of my results. I think I just need to take this victory in stride and focus on duplicating the results next week.
