Topless Mayhem

Well, I didn't get to the gym tonight.  I also did a lot of guessing on The Daily Plate today.  All told, it looks like I took in around 2100 calories, which I'm very proud of.  I just hope my estimations aren't wildly inaccurate.  I went to a fancy shindig tonight that was put on by my alma mater, the University of Minnesota-Morris, for prospective students.  I talked to them about what my college experience was like.  There was plenty of delicious food for people to graze on.  I had a few pieces of chocolate-covered fruit and one little one-ounce cheesecake thing.  All in all, I did really well.

The important thing is I logged everything to the best of my ability.  I also got 7 hours and 40 minutes of sleep last night.  That means I'm on course for my Nerd Fitness challenge.  27 days to go.

I almost skipped my before picture for the Nerd Fitness challenge.  I'll show it to you along with a couple others.

We'll go fattest to lightest.

313.2 - Me at my fattest.

291.7 - A fairly subtle change.

272.2 - Me five minutes ago.

I just scrolled through the pictures fast.  I'm excited.  Things are changing.  My hair is growing and I'm shrinking.  This is fantastic.  I wish I'd taken a side-view shot to start out.  I feel like I've shrunk most from front to back.  Maybe once I've lost 50 pounds I'll find some old pics of myself to contrast with new ones.

I started writing this post with very little energy.  Now I'm stoked!  Let's lose 20 pounds in March!

Also, I'll be jumping into a lake on Saturday.  Please donate.



  1. Keep it up, dude! You're doing awesome!

  4. Kick butt, Andrew! This is great. I love progress pictures. Keep up the good work.

    Counting calories does suck, huh?

  5. Wow! You look great, Andrew!

  6. I think getting the eating in control is harder than the fitness part. Eating the right stuff, and proper amounts is one thing. But being comfortable with being a little hungry at times is the most difficult at times.

    Once I got to the point where I know that that little twinge of hunger in my stomach is making me look better and better, makes it endurable.
